Little Chunker

erm, I mean... Kahlan is up a full pound from her birth weight.

We had a WIC appointment this morning and she weighs 9lbs 5oz, and is 21.5 inches long.

That works out to the 75th percentile for both weight and height, but only 25th percentile for weight/height combined... so she's tall and skinny basically... lucky girl, hopefully she will stay that way when she gets older... although then I might have to invest in a shotgun...

Let me tell you about WIC though... it is an amazing help. Since I'm breastfeeding I will be getting: (per month)
5.5 gallons of milk
3lbs of cheese
2 dozen eggs
36oz of cereal
7 bottles of juice (46oz bottles)
2lbs carrots
2lbs of dried beans
4 cans of tuna

and I will get a free electric double breast pump next month.

So we're going grocery shopping this afternoon... mmm....

What a cutie!

I found your blog on Because I Said So. You were asking for Dawn to come to Oklahoma on her Book Tour. I am excited to know there are other Okies out there.

I am in OKC. Come visit my blog anytime. I am probably going to be in your neck of the woods this weekend. My in-laws live in Enid.

Nice to "meet" you!
