Ava is 2 weeks Old!

We took Ava back to the Dr. for her 2 week appointment and the doc gave Ava a clean bil of health. Of course, there was the matter of her weight. She had not yet regained her birth weight of 8 lbs. 1 oz - she was weighting in instead at 7 lbs. 12 oz. They asked us to come back in a week's time to weigh her in again and make sure she was back to birth weight. I wasn't concerned about this since Jasmine was the same way and I figured it just takes my babies a while to fatten up!

Ava's 2 week stats -
Head - 13 and 3/4 - 25th percentile
Height - 19 1/4 - 10th percentile
Weight - 7 lbs. 12.9 oz. - 30th percentile

What Ava can do at 2 weeks -
She can lift her head for a few seconds
She can watch mommy talk
She is a big sleeper - about 16 hours a day
Eats like a champion
Can see up to 12 inches in front of her.
