Our Little Weight Gainer

So I took Ada back to the doctor today to see if she had put the weight back on that she had lost. We wanted to make sure that everything looked good before taking off for 3 months.
Well, it looks like we just had a hungry baby! Ada gained over 3 pounds in the last month (or 5 weeks). Such a relief. AND she has been the happiest baby on the block. I would be pretty upset if my mom stopped feeding me just as I was getting going. We now load her up with all sorts of goodness so there is no complaining from her! I was so relieved, but still feel badly that she was just not getting enough to eat. Sigh...at least next baby I will know.
Current Stats:
Weight: 18lbs 5 0z (70th percentile)
Height: 28" (90th percentile)
Head: 17 1/2 " (80th percentile)
Her head is finally catching up with the rest of her body.
Oh, and I don't remember if I mentioned it, but she has two teeth...and she has bitten me a few times now (I still nurse in the morning)!! Neither of us were happy campers this morning. She did not like my reaction when she clamped down on the ..... :) (and no, she was not hurt, I just made a loud noise and it scared her)
Hopefully she learned not to do that.

congrats on the big weight gain, Ada! that's a good girl :). What a relief. aren't those new little teeth so sharp? that's a feeling that's hard to forget. Hopefully she's done trying them out on Mom.

So glad that Ada is gaining some weight! And SOOOO happy that you guys will be here soon! Please call me so we can hang out! Landen goes to preschool over at Coleman, so we could even hang out in the mornings or whatever and then I could take him to school. I'm totally planning it all out, but I'm really really excited that you'll be here! :) Oh, also... will you please ask Jenny (Hill) to add me to her blog list? She leaves comments on mine, but I can't see hers. Funny. My email is gleasonfam@hotmail.com
Thanks girl! Call me when you get here!

Yeah!!!!! I am SOOOOOOOOO happy for baby Ada! :) She's so healthy and happy! :) That sling looks amazing. I need to get one! It looks so easy. That's fun you're going to sac. We are hoping to visit Greg's parents this summer, so we'll hopefully see you guys too. I know how you feel about the end of nursing. I feel so sad about it too, with Kate. :( ......
