Last Weekend

Last weekend we were very busy. It started Friday morning with Kaitlin's 2 week well check. The doctor said that she's doing great and that Kaitlin is average in height, weight, and head size. She weighed 8lbs 4oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. ( On a side note today I had her weighed and she is 9 lbs 2 oz, is it normal to gain that much in a week? ) After that we went on a nice quiet ride to Oxford for the weekend. We went to see Meme and Pappy and cousin Chase was in town visiting as well. Here's Pappy with Kaitlin. Saturday we went to the Pruitt Family Reunion at Noccalula Falls, a must see if you are ever driving through Gadsden. They have a 100 ft. waterfall, train, walking trails that go under the falls, a petting zoo, and more. Kaitlin went on her first train ride while we were there, she loved it. I didn't get a chance to get a picture of the falls, maybe next year.
And here Kaitlin is with Mom. We are still not sure what we are going to call her, Nana She She, Garndma, or Red ( just kidding ).

Even though it was a fun weekend and I really miss everyone I am glad that we are home now.

awww, its tiring traveling with a newborn!! and yes, it is normal to gain like that. when i went to breastfeeding support groups they weighed her every week and she always gained a pound or so! i was worried too! i'm glad you're doing good. call me if you need anything!
