gigantic monster baby

josephine had her second pediatrician appointment today and weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds, 3 ounces.  babies lose weight after birth and it’s hoped that they regain that weight and get back to their birth weight by two to three weeks of age.  well, our little darling is two weeks and two days old and is already five ounces over birthweight.  it’s gratifying to have hard evidence of exactly where all those hours i’ve spend nursing her have gone.

other than packing on the ounces, josephine’s been doing some stretching:

the kid loves her stretching
