Sephira's 2 Week Checkup

In the 7 days since Sephira's last checkup she put on 1 pound 3 ounces, weighing in at 9 pounds 10 ounces!! That's nearly 3 ounces a day! The nurse said Effie must be feeding her cream!

And she's gained a 1/4 inch in length too, measuring 21 inches now. She's growing so fast. Her little hands, arms and legs are starting to plump up and get chubby! It's so amazing to see the changes on a daily basis.


Wednesday evening Effie came down with a high fever of 103 which was determined to be "Postpartum Fever" caused by a possible urinary tract infection. We called the Doctor and they prescribed a 10-day dose of antibiotics over the phone, as they said there was nothing that they could do for Effie if she came in to their office.
