Our growing baby girl

We went to the doctor, and I am proud to say that Sara Beth is a growing baby girl.  When she was born, she was 7 pounds 15 ounces.  By the time we left the hospital, she was down to 7 pounds 6 ounces.  Between Saturday and Monday, she gained 6 ounces back!  

I wanted to take a picture of her on the scale as well, but Sara Beth had other plans.  We put her on the scale, the nurse asked to have her diaper taken off so that we would just be weighing her.  Of course, we open up her diaper and find that she left a little suprise in there for us.  So we wipe down our naked baby who is lying on scale in the hallway of the doctors office.  Then she spits up.  My first thought when she did that was "darn, that means that she is not going to weigh as much." Heather and I worked to clean her up her upper half, and then she got weighed.  So I was so busy wiping and removing smelly stuff that taking a picture slipped my mind until we had her all clothed again and back into the car seat.  But through this entire process she was calm.  She allowed herself to be stripped down without complaint, and even the nurse commented on how well she was taking it.
