Lots has happened since the last post. We never have time to blog anymore! Funny how that works...
Willow went to the doctor on Tuesday, and she's up to 8 pounds 4 ounces! Yes, she gained 10 ounces since her last appointment 8 days prior. We were very relieved, but not surprised, I guess. We had been on a pretty aggressive feeding schedule since the appointment before that when she had only gained 2 ounces. We've been pretty religious about the every 2.5 hours thing, and i guess it's working!
My grandma Lois and aunt Tracey came to town on Tuesday and they were happy to see Willow.
We got a 4-generation shot.
Then on Thursday night, Josh's parents and sister Janna came up. Janna had been to the NICU but never got to see Willow in person yet since only parents and grandparents are allowed. We were so glad she finally got to see her! And Jack hadn't seen her, either, since she was a few days old.
We've had a great time hanging out with them. So has Willow! It's been great to have helpers. I've hardly done a daytime feeding all weekend! We also celebrated Josh's 30th birthday on Friday (Thursday was his actual birthday).
Today, my friend Ruth threw a baby shower for me out at her parents' camp. As if Willow hasn't gotten enough presents already! :) It was a fun shower; I really appreciated it. I hadn't really had a shower yet (except for a small one given my the girls in my crafting group), so was glad I got to have one. I was supposed to have one in Minnesota the weekend after we got back from Florida back in February. Well, then I went into the hospital and Willow was born, so that never happened. Thanks to everyone for all the thoughtful gifts!
The parting shot, because I think it's so cute, is our friend Seth holding Willow. Awww....
Bye bye to Tat
