A Perfect 10

Yep...that's right...she hit 10 kilos today!  Woohoo!!!  She has done amazing with her eating since she got over her last bout with the stomach flu (or whatever she had for 8 very long days).  She has actually been a totally different little girl since she got over this...running around, playing like crazy, laughing, talking, and just being a lot happier than she was even before she got sick.  She is still only grazing through the day, but it is a little more than before she got sick and it makes me think she is really taking this weight thing seriously. 

For my non-kilo is a summary:

Today Hope weighed 22 pounds .74 ounces.  On January 4th (a couple days after her flu) she weighed 20 pounds 8.05 ounces.  That means she has gained 1 pound 8.69 ounces...that is huge.  I don't think she has ever gained that much in two weeks (probably not in a month).  I know some of it is from her packing on weight after the bug, but is amazing!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year!  2012 started off with a little bug, but it is definitely gearing up to be a great year for our family. 


  1. Yay for the weight gain!! That's great! She is just so cute in that picture all bundled up - Praying she stays healthy and eats =)

  2. FANTASTIC!!! So happy to hear she's feeling better and gaining weight. Go Hope Go!

  3. She didn't need the scale to tell her she's a perfect 10! ;-) Glad she's feeling better and hopefully she didn't spread the creeping crud around!
