We have a 6 pounder!!

At Kathryn's nurse visit yesterday, she weighed in at 6 pounds even. That may not sound like much, but is certainly huge for Kathryn. I looked back in Madelyn's baby book and she was 5 pounds, 11 ounces at 1 month old, so Kathryn is certainly trailing behind on the petite scale!!

We had her doctor's checkup today and Dr. Stansell said that she looks just fine. She got her Synagis shot today and then promptly spit up her entire bottle for the first time ever. So once we got home from the doctor's office, I gave Kathryn her bath. She was showing low sats today after that for quite some time, so this afternoon, I suctioned her nose. Since then, she has been just fine with sats at 100%. Most babies don't have problems with their nose, but because of the oxygen, we have to suction Kathryn twice a day or so to help her breathe!!

We are preparing for bad weather in Birmingham in the next few hours, so Greg is headed home. Certainly an inconvenience for work purposes, but the girls and will welcome him home early with open arms. I was actually planning to make homemade chicken noodle soup tonight and I hope that our power stays on. Greg said he may actually pick up a pizza on the way home just in case. Also, if our power goes out at all, we'll be switching out oxygen tanks all night and staying up to watch Kathryn in case our monitor battery dies. Let's all pray that the power stays on!!!

Well, that's about all the news from our house for now!!
