2 Weeks Old

The calendar is slowly filling up with doctor appointments.

We had an appointment in Little Rock at the cardiology clinic at the children's hospital.  They checked all her vitals and she appears to be doing the same.  We're waiting for her to grow to see how her heart does.  We'll probably know more in the next 6 weeks.  We have another appointment with them in a month.  The doctor frowned when we told her that David goes to daycare.  If Kayla gets sick, it could be very serious and need to be hospitalized.  

We also had a 2 week checkup with the pediatrician.
Height 19" 
Weight 6 lb 12 oz. 
Head Circumference 32.5 cm

The pediatrician said the weight gain was a little slow, so he wants to see us again in a week.  Kayla also got the Synagis shot for RSV.  That shot is quite pricy.  I hope insurance covers it.  They said the first shot is $1200 for 50 mg and the next would would be $2400!  She has to have these shots every 28-30 days during RSV season. 

So how's everybody doing?
I'm doing good....just a little tired from all the night time feedings.  I'm recovering from this pregnancy a lot faster than I did with David.  The swelling in my hands and feet finally went down after week.  I also wasn't in as much pain this time.

On Monday, David went back to daycare and Chris went back to work.  We were a little worried that David might have problems returning, but he was great all day.  They said on the first day he carried a doll around and kept saying 'my baby'.  He is a great big brother and loves to help out whenever he can.  

Kayla sleeps all day and is usually only awake for maybe 2-3 hours a day.  She only cries a little when she wants to be fed or held.  She just worries us with her breathing.  Sometime she breathes fast, but the cardiologist said it was normal.
