The Busy Giffs: Two Weeks.

June 27, 2011

Two Weeks.

Emma had her pediatrician's 2 week check up today and my, oh my has she grown!

Today she was 8 lbs 10.5 oz and 21.5 inches long!
At birth she was 8 lbs 6 oz, and dropped down to 7 lb 15 oz, and was 19 inches!
at her 5 day appointment she was 8 lbs even so she's put on on ounce a day! and grew more than an inch each week!

The doctor says her clavical has healed, she has a bump when the bones fused together again but the bump will be "recycled" into her bones as she hits her growth spurts so it will be gone eventually.

She also commented about how strong Emmalee is.  Emmalee was fighting her as she tried to take off her diaper and rotate her hips.  She laughed and said we had done well with a healthy, strong baby.  And honestly, that's the only thing that matters.

Her belly button started to bleed a bit, and thnakfully, its normal.  The docor told us we could give her a legitamate bath and the water would help the scab she has.  Otheriwse, were not supposed to clean it or treat it like the umbilical cord was still there.  Clean during a bath, wipe if her belly is dirty and when the scab falls off, she should be all set!

Also, she still has greenish muck in her eyes.  She had it in the hospital but two weeks later, shes still got it.  The doctor gave us a prescription for eye drops to help her until the culture comes back to see what it is/whats causing it.  Our biggest fear is that its an allergy to the puppies, but like the docor said, where she's not coughing or developing a rash, its simmply in her eyes, her thought is that its not an allergy but rather a locked tear duct.  Obviously that makes us much happier to hear because we immediately started thinking about what would have to happen to the pups and it sucked. Obviously my duaghter comes before the dogs and if  they are a harm to her, they'd have to go, but they are a part of our family and it would suck to have to say goodbye.

But, for now, we dont have to make any moves or decisions until the culture comes back and we'll go from there!

but on a VERY happy note, NICK IS HOME!!! :)
I didnt write much becuase I didnt want to ruin the surprise on my mom but now that he's home and he's surprised her at lunch I can write again and not have to censor myself!! yey!!

I'm so excited to go see him and have him meet his neice! :)
