I can’t believe Kivrin’s already three weeks old! She is getting more interested in looking at her toys, and she is smiling and watching our faces when we talk. This week she started grabbing on to the fabric of our shirts, and grasping my finger with her hand more. She likes to be outside — during a heavy rain, we sat on the back porch together and the cool air and the noise seemed to calm her. We try to take several short walks every day around our neighborhood — but we try to limit ourselves so that we don’t end up at Dairy Queen on every walk. Kivrin is still wearing newborn diapers and clothes, but probably not for much longer. Last Wednesday, (9-10) she weighed just over 9 pounds at the hospital’s Breastfeeding Clinic and her weight gain has been averaging over an ounce a day.
