I finally came up with a fun way to show Rory's age with my monthly pictures, but it didn't happen for her 1 week and 1 month. Here's what we have so far!
We went to the doctor for her 1 month checkup on Wednesday. Apparently, this girl likes to eat. She's gained 3 1/2 lbs. since her first doctor's appointment. We did the math and it averages out to almost 2oz a day...when normal is about 1oz per day of weight gain. She's definitely chunky!
She also has thrush...which explains some more of the terrible pain in breastfeeding. At least it's not as bad as the mastitis was. BUT, breastfeeding is a good thing and is worth it. We'll figure out a rhythm where neither of us are in pain...eventually.
A final fun note: We realized that Rory was born on our 3 year dating anniversary. It took us back to that skype conversation with Jonathan in Rome, GA and me in Cairo telling him, "I'm in. Not a little, but all the way." Eleven days later we were engaged, and married 5 months after that!
