March Update

Thursday, March 23rd, 2000

Ok, first things first. Zelly weighs in at 5# 14oz today, is 19″ long
with a head 35 cm around. She’s growing and sleeping longer at night.
In fact her whole feeding schedule is changing so that she eats less
at night and more during the middle of the day. She’s slowed down her
growth rate, only averaging 1/2 oz per day for the past three weeks,
down from the previous rate of 3/4 oz. ‘Normal’ newborns grow at an
average of 1 oz per day.

Zelly & Harlow

zelly & harlow
Harlow likes to watch over Zelly while the two of them snuggle in the bassinet. Harlow is very dedicated but even she gets tired of Zelly’s kicking and screaming and will then seek the relative peace and quiet of the back of the couch.

Eye Check and More

Monday, March 6th, 2000

We had two doctors appointments last week. Zelly had her
preemie eye exams and passed with flying colors — she has no
retina problems related to her premature birth. We also saw the
pediatrician and she’s up to 5 lbs, 2 oz and 18 inches long. That
explains why she’s growning out of some of her sleepers. Our little
girl is growing up so fast !
