Movin' on up...

We had our weekly breastfeeding support group yesterday which means SCALE TIME for us. Sophia was 9 lbs 9 oz! This is a huge gain for her b/c we lost weight when we got sick. Last Monday she had dropped to 9 lbs 1.5 oz (the week before at her 2 month visit she was 9lbs 3 ozs). I will take a 7.5 oz weight gain! This is the most she has ever gained in 1 week!! Hooray for us!! Monday's can either be stressful or exciting when getting on the scales!

I also met and talked with a girl at my group. She is from Cali, but moved to Brownsburg with her husband and 5 year old son 2 years ago. She was so cool and very talkative (just like me!)! They haven't met many people at all here, and I felt so bad for her b/c her family is all in Cali. As I have said time and time again, I can't imagine not having the support from family and friends close by with the birth of a child!! Hopefully she doesn't think I am weird, but next week I plan to reach out to her and give her my number to see if she wants to take our girls for a walk!! Her daughter is a cutie and about 3-4 weeks younger than Sophia. She has a full head of dark hair!! Maybe she and I can be friends!! :)

We have been outside enjoying all the wonderful weather. We had a nice long walk Sunday with daddy at the Avon Park and yesterday with Apryl and Olivia!! Hopefully today we will get to take a walk with Aunt Sarah when she gets done with school!!! I just love breathing the fresh WARM air!! I am looking forward to the day that I get to take off her little fleece bundler in her car seat!! Then we will truly know spring is here!!!

Here is a picture of Heidi (my parents dog) laying next to Sophia last Thursday. Heidi is very jealous of Sophia b/c she is no longer the "baby" of the family. It is crazy to see a dog's nose out of joint!

Is that a smile Sophia???

Nothing else new to report!! Until next time...

Allyson and Sophia
