Friday, May 27, 2005 (TAYLOR IS 2 WEEKS OLD)

It’s been two weeks now and our skinny mini is plumping up! We took her to the pediatrician and she gained a pound over her birth weight. The doctor seems very pleased with her progress, and I’m glad that I stuck with the nursing. It’s hard, but it seems like it’s going to be worth it in the long run. Last week we took her to Fresno to visit with her grandma C.R., great-uncle Steve and great-Aunt Dot. We got some good pictures from that trip:

Taylor is a pretty angelic little baby so far. She sleeps most of the time and is almost impossible to wake up! The first week was pretty rough as far as nursing, but I got some help from my friend Heather and things seem to be getting a lot easier. Taylor had her first appointment with the pediatrician last Sunday and she had already gotten back up to her birth weight (she’s a good little eater, just like mom and dad!).

Our sweet daughter, Taylor Jules Radding was born yesterday, May 12, 2005 at 4:18 a.m. She weighed in at 6lbs, 12 oz. and was almost 21″ long. Zach and I put together this website for her as a kind of virtual baby book. We’ll be posting pictures and writing about what’s going on in her life. Eventually, she can post to her own website, but for now we’ll be narrating.
