Growing up

Kristen's growth milestones:
Kristen and I are participating in a research study about mothers and babies and nutrition. The researchers came over to interview us and take some measurements. Kristen at 3 weeks weighs 4.15kg and is 54cm long. She grew 3 cm in 3 weeks. Wow! And now at 4 weeks she feels so heavy its hard to remember how tiny she was when she came out.

Random things the girls say:
Ellie made this remark yesterday when Kristen sneezed,"Babies sneeze too because they are people."

Caitlin and I were having this conversation about why she calls KM daddy and not papa or pups or puppy like she used to. "Daddy is not a dog, he doesn't crawl"

Kristen's been such a good baby. Sleeping. Feeding. Waking. Sleeping. Feeding. Here are the pictures!


Always let sleeping babies lie. I know I should be getting some sleep when Kristen naps but I can't help trying to catch up some reading or email or updating this blog.

Here she is awake. Kristen's been such a good natured baby so far.

Kristen's two older sisters adore her. Non of the Ellie-jealousy when Caitlin was born. Yesterday both sisters were dancing round her singing a self-composed Kristen song.

And here's one of the proud (and a little tired) Papa.
