On Wednesday, Maggie turned 1 month old. We took her to the doctor for her checkup and she weighed 6 lbs, 14 oz. She's still tiny, but she is doing a lot better than she had been 4 days before. Jim took her in for a weight check Saturday and she was only 6 lbs, 9 oz. (just 1 ounce more than at birth, and 6 oz. more than at her last checkup 18 days prior). The doctor was concerned that she was only gaining 1/3 oz. per day. We began giving her a little (1 Tbsp.) extra milk after 4-5 feedings each day and she was able to gain 5 ounces in 4 days! She's packing on the pounds...er...ounces!

Happy Valentine's Day from the Kellys!
Here are some pictures I took of Maggie last week:
On Sunday I asked the boys to put on white shirts and jeans so I could take a few pictures of them with their sister. Surprisingly, I had no complaints. They really love Maggie and want to hold and kiss her lots.
Maggie is wearing this cute outfit from Uncle Michael and Auntie Kathleen today, on her first Valentine's Day.

Margaret Anne Kelly
Maggie was born at 4:06 a.m. on Sunday, January 26. She was 6 lbs, 8 oz. and 19 inches long. We were shocked and thrilled to welcome a daughter into our family!
Jim brought the boys up to the hospital to meet her later that night. They are in love with their baby sister!
On Tuesday afternoon, I buckled Maggie in her car seat and we went home!
She's a little snuggle bug!
