Hey, remember when I did these weekly?  We only recently stopped weighing her weekly, but as you know, I stopped posting weekly quite some time ago.  Looking back over the blog, it looks like the last time I posted stats is June 1, 2011.  Is that really possible?  Sheesh.  I'm a bad preemie mommy blogger.  But we were at the doc on Wednesday, so here are her stats as of then and total gains since she got her feeding tube and we began growth hormone shots.

June 1, 2011: 11.20 kg (24 pounds, 12 ounces), 34 inches
February 1, 2012: 11.70 kg (25 pounds, 13 ounces), 36 inches
8 Months' Change (surely it hasn't been THAT long!): 0.5 kg (1 pound, 2 ounces), 2 inches
Net Change: 5000 grams (133 ounces = 8 pounds, 5 ounces), 7.5 inches

Soooo...her weight gain hasn't been great, but a 3-year-old to growing 2 inches in 8 months isn't too shabby.  Her docs aren't so concerned about her weight gain at the moment because she is picking up height, which tells us that she's getting enough nutrition.  She's got the rest of her life to gain weight.  Percentile-wise, her weight is back down to the < 3rd percentile range, but her height is 6th percentile!  Wohoo!
