18 ounces! Yes, in one week, our little princess has added that much weight. Today, she weighs 7 pounds 12 ounces. Obviously, she's keeping her mama quite busy with feeding times. The other good news from the doctor visit today is that she finally passed her hearing test in both ears. We weren't really concerned, because we'd seen plenty of evidence already that she hears quite well, thank you very much. But if she hadn't passed it pretty soon, she'd have been referred to a clinic in Santa Fe (two hours away) for a further evaluation. Nothing against Santa Fe--it's a pretty drive between here and there--but we feel like we're all busy enough right now without adding that to our agenda, too!
