Miracle Gro

Katie had her one month well baby check.  As a refresher, she was 20 1/4 inches long and 7 lbs, .06 ozs at birth. 

Her big sister, Callie, was 6 lbs, 11.8 ozs and 19 inches long at birth and at one month was 20 3/4 inches long and 9 lbs even at one month.  Callie has slid down the lower half of the percentile charty dodad for her entire life.  I think that she's currently at about 20%.

Yesterday, Katie tipped the scales at NINE POUNDS, 11 ozs.  Then she nursed.  And then the nurse asked if I wasnted to weigh her again and she was a smidge under ten pounds.  And she's 22 inches long.  This little growth spurt puts her in the 79th percentile for height and 61st for weight.

In Other News, she also has a heart murmur.  Our pediatrician sent us straight to the hospital for an EKG and a chest xray.  The EKG was normal and I haven't heard back about the chest xray.  I don't actually know what they would have been looking for on an xray.  I'm assuming that if there was anything glaring, they wouldn't have let us leave yesterday and/or we would have heard something by now.  Right?
