Attack of the 11 pound baby!

It's finally happened - our sweet, little, premature baby is officially in the double digits with her weight, almost 11 pounds today! Ann, our public health nurse, came by for a weight/height check and it's official, 10 pounds 13 ounces, only 3 ounces from the big 1-1. She's also 23" long with a head circumference of 16"! Grow Daisy grow!

Who'd have ever thought that our 2 pound, 15 1/2 long spider monkey would grow into the gigantic baby I currently have sitting in my lap watching me type. Since July she's gained almost 10 pounds and has grown 8 inches - her head has almost doubled in size. Simply amazing. She's holding her head up, tracking toys, having baby conversations with her dad and I, we both keep waiting for her to pick up the car keys and go for a joy ride.

Daisy is such a sweet reminder of all that I am thankful for, she is the best gift Santa could have ever put under the tree.
