49 ounces gained

In 47 days (As of Wed.) Claire gained 49 ounces. She came home at 74 ounces and is now 123 ounces. That beats the one ounce a day recommendation for growth (just slightly).

I gave her a bath on the kitchen table on Thursday. This was easier on my back than kneeling over the tub. Mark wants to help with a bath tommorrow.

Claire's eyelashes have become visible in the last week or so although you still can't see any eyebrows.

On Thursday night Claire slept a record 4.5 hours in a row. I guess she was extra tired from the new SNS feedings.

She did a lot of napping on our laps Friday. (Mark took the day off to go with me to the cardiologist but the appointment had to be changed to Tuesday.) It was nice to have an extra day at home together.

Nanna can't wait to see Claire's eyelashes. So nice to hear about longer sleep times and an extra day at home with daddy Mark. Love you all!

Great news on both weight gain and longer sleeping periods! Congratulations, parents of Claire.

Eyelashes? Would they show up in a photo?

I meant to suggest bathing her on the kitchen table while I was visiting, but I didn't know if it would be too cool for her or not. I guess if you are still having summer in So. Calif. it is not a problem.

Love,
