Took Novella to the Outpatient Lab for bloodwork yesterday. The nurse said she was the strongest newborn she'd ever seen.

Took the baby to the pediatrician today. She gained weight, which is good. Better still, she'd gone from 21 to 24 inches. This puts her in the upper 90th percentile for length in newborn 1 week old or younger.

So she's a larval Amazon, basically.

Not scared yet.

Wow! Three inches in a week? I definitely detect volleyball in her future. Possibly basketball as well. Just so you know.
