In the double digits!

Maya is 10 days old today!!

We had a visit to the pediatrician today..Maya is 6 lbs!! She was born at 5 lbs 13 oz. When she checked out of the hospital she was 5 lbs 6.5 oz. On Tuesday at her follow up she was 5 lbs 11 oz--so she gained 5 oz in 4 days! She loves to eat, that little one... Her umbilical cord is about to fall off--then she'll be able to take her first real bath. The doc pronounced her in perfect health, so we'll just be going back in 3 weeks for her first month appointment.

Speaking of weight, I've lost 35 of my 45 pregnancy pounds! Granted, quite a bit of that was water weight from all the swelling, but I'll take it. That's 20 pounds in one week (they weighed me when they discharged me from the hospital). A couple more weeks like this one and I'll be supermodel Then maybe I'll post a picture of myself...

Maya's been going on her daily walks. She took her first trip to the mall yesterday--Nordstrom's was her favorite. However, she didn't buy anything..her mom got some boots..

Last night Maya was a champ sleeper. She went to sleep at 11:30 and slept until 4. Then she was up for an hour and then slept from 5-9! It was glorious... Generally, we can't complain..she is quite a good sleeper. Hopefully soon she she can transition into her bassinet..
