Tired arms - diagnosed!

It is very fortunate that babys are born light (all relative) and gain mass in a slow (also relative) process. Of course, the opposite scenario seems pretty bizare! In any case, this gradual weight increase gives the parents time to build up physical strenght in order to be able to handle their precious offspring. To put in in another way, we are constantley sore in our arms and back because Anais Thima keeps adding grams and centimeters to her body.
Today, we visited the "open house" of the home-nurses where we could have our little pink cloud weighed. The results showed that she burdened Mommy and Daddy's arms with 5.9kg and her length was somewhere around 60cm. That is spot on the projected growth curve - good girl!

Anais' very own personal growth plot... what else can you expect from a Daddy in science?
