Doctor Doctor, gimme the news...

We had our 2 week checkup today, and I am proud to say that even after losing 15 oz. in her first 5 days of life, our little girl has now surpassed her birth weight and weighs a whopping 10 lbs 3 0z! Now she weighs as much as Pepper!

10 lbs, 3 oz

10 lbs, 3 oz

The doctor says she is doing just fine, and she was so quiet and alert for the whole appointment - I was very proud of her :) So far she's doing really well at home, too - she sleeps for good long segments of the night, and really only cries when she's hungry (knock on wood!) She smiles a LOT, and even though the books all say its just gas, I think she's smiling at us some too. She especially gets smiley after a full belly as she's drifting off to sleep - sometimes she laughs in her sleep too, which is the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life! Of course I never have the camera when I really need it. I have added a bunch of pictures to my flickr site, but here's a couple of the good ones.
Sleeping Beauty!
