Almost three weeks old!

Audree will be three weeks old tomorrow. I can't believe it! She has a doctor's appointment at 1 at the clinic for a checkup. I went to the breastfeeding support group this past Saturday and found out that she's getting 2 ounces of milk every five minutes! WOW! They had me strip her down to her diaper, weigh her, feed her and weigh her again. She weighed 10 lbs, 4.4 oz before I fed her and then gained 2 ounces after. She's also breaking out in a bit of a rash around her face; I'm going to ask the doctor about it tomorrow. And...she's going through a growth spurt and eating every hour and a half for 10 minutes or so and then sleeping. She's still really active though! She has her playtime in the morning, afternoon and night for a half hour each time.

Mark had dental surgery yesterday. The skin connecting the lip to the gums is called the frenulum, and Mark's was too low for them to be able to work around it to put the screws in for the new front tooth. So...they cut that piece of skin off. He's healing from that and then goes back in another two weeks to have the screws put in and hopefully the tooth, too. We'll see...the Navy does things on their own time frame.
