Weigh and pity party

Ellie weighed in at 11 lbs, 14 ozs this morning. At first blush it seemed like 10 ozs in two weeks. But then I started doing the math. According to Pat, our pediatrician's nurse, her last weigh in was February 21, weighing 11 lbs 4 ozs. One week later was Feb 28th. Two weeks later was March 7th. So this was almost 3 weeks later. At any rate, I was really hoping for 12 even, at least! Which leads into my pity party. After 6 months, according to my research, the weight gain is about 1 pound a month, potentially 1.25. So if it was not quite a pound and not quite a month, in theory, she's on track. I'm terrified she's going to end up with a ng, post surgery. Then I really will feel like a failure. Failure to thrive becomes failure to act as an appropriate parent. She is getting a nice Buddha belly though. :)
