Weekly Weigh-In: The You're-REALLY-Not-Going-to-Believe-This Edition

Last week: 9.3 kg (20 pounds, 9 ounces), 31.5 inches
This week: 9.6 kg (21 pounds, 2 ounces), 33 inches
Weeks change: +300 grams (9 ounces), + 1.5 inches
Net change:  +1900 grams (59 ounces = 3 pounds, 11 ounces), +4 inches 

I knew this was going to be a big week.  But I didn't think it was going to be this big again!  Even though Becca threw up 3 (or maybe 4?) times, she has been looking v.e.r.y chubby.  So chubby in the cheeks, in fact, that the possibility of mumps crossed my (hyper-vigilant) mind more than once.  In lighter moments this week, though, I taught her to play the old youth group favorite "Chubby Bunny".  (She's been "packing" a lot this week - filling her cheeks with food like a chipmunk without actually eating any of it.)  She's a champ.  And again, I don't think she grew 1.5 inches in a week, but I think the past few weeks have been short.  She's definitely been getting taller lately.  

Dr. Rawls still isn't worried about the pace of the weight gain.  (Because of her risk of metabolic issues, I'm a little nervous when she puts on so much weight at once.)  He is quite proud of her, though, and made a point to show her off to a resident who was in clinic today.  Sure, he's impressed with her medical history/recovery/story, but he is mostly impressed with her awesome monkey impression.  The girl's got skillz.
