The Continuing Adventures of SuperPreemie

Bigger by the day!

Posted on: February 10, 2005

Had our regularly-scheduled pediatrician’s appointment today. Shoshanna has been declared to be HUGE! (Well, relatively.) For her adjusted age (5 weeks), she’s in the 40th percentile for length and weight and in the 45th for head circumference. She weighed 9 pounds, 1.4 ounces today. (To put things in perspective, my friend Rhys, who probably isn’t reading this, just had herself a 9 pound, 15.5 ounce baby girl. Yowza!) Otherwise, her pedi says that she really doesn’t look like a preemie anymore, that she’s making very cute cooing noises (which she is… we just hadn’t stopped to think long enough to identify her new soft cute noises as coos), and that she generally is doing really fantastic. She had some suggestions for how to deal with the monster air bubbles that Shoshanna’s getting in her tummy, as well.

Woohoo! Officially as big as I was at birth! (Granted, ~1.5 pounds of that was water weight on me, but I was 3 weeks premature. Plus, my mom just has huge babies–my sister was 9 lbs 13 oz.)

And baby coos are awesome.

She’s also finally beat her father’s birth weight of 9 lbs. I can’t wait to hear a coo from her next week. Grandma
