Sweet Pea got the chance to meet her little sister on Wednesday afternoon. She showed a little interest in her and then signed all done. She has repeated that performance a number of times since, but she has been very sweet to her. I will have to try to capture her trying to help me burp her sister. I think it is the cutest thing ever!
Here are photos from their very first meeting:
We requested to be discharged from the hospital on Thursday afternoon because we could never get any rest there with people always coming into the room for one reason or another. We had to go see the pediatrician yesterday (Friday) because she is a little jaundiced and the hospital pediatrician wanted our regular pediatrician to make the call on if anything needed to be done about it. She weighed 7lbs 13oz at the doctor on Friday and since she was 7lbs 14oz at 2:30am on Thursday it looks like she is probably done losing weight. My milk came in yesterday so that should help as well. Our regular pediatrician isn't worried about the jaundice. She wants us to put her in the sun a bit, but that is about it. If it gets worse then we will go see her again, but otherwise we won't see the doctor for 2 weeks. Such a nice change from Sweet Pea's first week of life!
This little girl is very sweet. She sleeps a ton (more during the day than night, but we are talking to her about changing that), eats fairly well (if only she would stay awake for a full feeding that would help) and isn't very fussy. We hope that doesn't change as she gets used to her new surroundings!
Now, if you haven't noticed, we don't have a nickname for her yet to use on this blog. If you have any suggestions, let us know!
