3 Weeks Old...

Length: I did my best to measure her yesterday and my most valiant efforts are still most likely inaccurate... but somewhere between 20 and 20 1/4 inches...
Weight: 7 lbs. 9 oz.
Feeding Schedule: She is still eating about every three hours during the day and taking between 3 and 4 ounces per feeding. We have been lucky enough to get 4 and 5 hour stretches at night which has helped a little (big emphasis on "little") on the sleepiness in this house. We took her to the doctor today because her reflux is still acting up (and we thought she was coming down with a cold) and he suggested we add 2 teaspoons of rice cereal (per ounce) to the breast milk when we feed her to help the food stay down better. We bought some this afternoon and are starting it this evening... hopefully it helps soothe her tummy and maybe (fingers crossed) helps her sleep even longer at night... a mom can hope, right?
Sleeping Schedule: Things have improved on this front since last week... the last few nights she has taken her dinner at 7:00 and then had a bath and slept until 2:00am (too bad we don't go to bed until almost 10:00pm). Then she's up again between 5:00am and 6:00am asking to be fed again...
Milestones: She had her first tub bath last night!! She loved it :) and she smells much better now!
Best Moment This Week: Getting a two hour nap this afternoon while Derek watched Addison... I'm so tired and it felt like such a treat!
Parenting Wisdom: When all else fails... call the pediatrician.
