NICU follow up, etc.

Oh I am so bad about posting updates.
The NICU follow-up went great! The nurse practitioner was very pleased with her progress. She is right where she should be for her corrected age. She is still below the curve in height and weight-which normal for being a preemie-but she is already on the curve for head size. Shocker, considering she has 2 parents with huge heads! It's just because we are so darn smart! :)
We had our last meeting with the visiting nurse for a few months. Amelia weighed 10lbs 4oz which was just an increase of 4oz in 2 weeks. I was a little concerned since she is supposed to gain about an ounce a day. So Brenda, the nurse suggested we increase her feeds. We are back up to 3 1/2 ounces with a slow nipple to prevent spitting up. Hopefully that will help. She did really well sleeping at night those 2 weeks, which means she skipped at least 1 feeding a night, so that's probably why. 
We saw Dr. Pak last week and got 4 month shots. Yuck.  My poor baby- it hurts my heart to see her cry!        
Anyway, there isn't much else going on in this casa. Love you all!
Btw- I've lost 8.2 lbs on Weight Watchers! Yay!
