Baby Chunkster

She is so cute and getting to be so big!! She is up to 12lbs 6oz and definately eats like her parents!! We really are fortunate that she is doing so well and so very thankful. She is growing right before our eyes and looks enormous to us!! 2 weeks ago she was 10lbs 14 oz, last week 11lbs 11oz and now she's 12lbs 6oz!! We tried to tell you all that she was a chunky monkey!!! We are going to begin to give her cereal soon with her formula.

Here are some big occurances from the past week:
Last weekend we went to Grandma's house again and then to Houston. Bella got to see her godfather Luke and Machel was able to attend a baby shower.

We have scheduled her helmet consultations and she will be scanned on Tuesday the 9th and fitted on Thursday the 18th.

We took Bella to the pediatrician on Tuesday because she had a mild fever and runny pooh. She has also been spitting up more than usual the past week. Dr. Johnson thinks it is reflux and Bella is on baby Zantac. She was amazed by how big Bella is and very happy with her progress.

Yesterday she was a bit fussy and did not sleep at all. Machel said that she maybe slept an hour. Needless to say she was tired last night and she did the unthinkable, she slept through the entire night!! She went to sleep at 9pm and slept until 6am. Then the little chunky monkey ate 8oz of food and went back to sleep again!!

Enjoy the pictures of our big girl!! Thanks to Cam and Cynthia for her new swing!!

Look at her! Great job growing, Bella. You're going to catch up to Olivia soon! What a cutie and a blessing she is to you.

Hi Chris and Machel. Glad to hear that Bella is doing so well. Her and Morgan are very similar. Morgan is packing on the pounds very quickly too but not quite sleeping through the night like Bella...I can't wait for that! Those are some great pictures of her smiling!
