Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Autumn's 1-month check-up

Karl took Autumn to her 1-month check-up this morning since I was in the middle of my IV therapy. There were no shots today. She weighs 8 pounds and 13 ounces....hasn't gained a lot but is gaining. Actually, she was just 7 lb 10 oz when we were there last, so she's gained just over a pound since then. She measured 22 inches long, so I believe she's doing much of her growing by getting longer. The doctor just said to keep feeding her every three hours, which we're doing anyway. His words according to Karl were, "She's not a hefty gainer." But that's okay, she's making progress.
