chickpea or MONSTER BABY

Nicole's dad calls anna a chickpea because nicole ate alot of chickpeas while prego and thus she had a little chickpea. The name is actually quiet fitting because when anna is hungry she pecks the ground (or chest of whoever is holding her) like a chicken (see pictures below)

But this girl is no spring chicken. We had our 2 week visit today.

At birth Anna was 9 pounds 5 ounces and 19 inches.
Today she was 11 pounds 1 ounce and 22.5 inches.

for all your parents out there that is 99% for height, 98% for weight, 50% of weight for height. But they have her at 40weeks gestation on the chart - i bet if they changed that to 42 her percents would be lower.

I wish i could shrink 20% of my body weight the way she just gained 20% of hers!

Hang in there Nicole. She will start sleeping better soon for you. I know it's hard to believe that now, but it will happen for ya.
