So, today I went to the pediatrician for my one week check up. I'm actually 9 days old, but today was the only day they could see me. Dr. Kelly just loves me and told me I am growing at a perfect rate. When I was born I weighed 7 lbs 14 oz. After birth I dropped to 7 lbs 5 oz, which I'm told is normal for babies to do. Well, today, I weighed 7 lbs 15 oz! I'm an ounce over my birth weight which Dr. Kelly says is GREAT! My mommy told Dr. Kelly it's because I eat so much and then mommy had a talk with me about maybe settling down on the boob a little. The problem is I just like it so much, which is why the title of my blog today is "MOO!"

Every time I get hungry I hear my mommy saying to daddy how much she feels like a cow. I can't help that I get hungry every 2 hours. I'm a growing girl! Mommy says that she now has boob anxiety because every time I go in to eat I like to flail my arms around, shake my head, and bite with my gums. I can't help that I'm just so excited to eat. I like to have a little party before going in for the boob. Mommy wishes I would stop and eat peacefully, but she just doesn't know how good breast milk tastes. I told her and daddy to try it, but they refuse. They keep saying something about big people food, but I don't get what they are talking about yet.

Rumble, rumble, rumble... there goes my tummy again. It's time for another feed! Here I come mommy!

That's too funny little cow!! I can't wait to meet her. Madelyn is excited to meet her new BFF too! Anyway, I hope everything is going well and if you got any questions feel free to ask.

Just wait, if you start pumping, you will really feel like a cow! I felt like I was either feeding or pumping 24 hours a day! Love you! I know you both are having a great time with your new addition!

Hi Cori Belle,

Our mommy feels the exact same way about feeding time. She is trying to get my sister and I trained to eat at the same time so that she is only feeding us for 20 minutes at a time rather than 40 minutes. She said it was pretty unnatural feeling at first, but I guess her and daddy feel like sleep time is more important.
