First Doctor Visit

Aria is 2 whole weeks old today and had her first visit to the doctor's office (first visit anywhere out of the house, actually).

Weight: 9 lbs 3 oz - 75th percentile (she left the hospital weighing 7 lbs 3 oz, gaining a whole 2 pounds!)
Length: 21 inches - 75th percentile

She also had her second PKU test, where they jab her in the heal and make her bleed on a piece of cardboard (check's for a specific enzyme). The nurse complimented her on what a good bleeder she was! The girlie band aid the nurse tried to put on first wouldn't stick so we had to go with the cool camo band aid. I think it made her look tough. Mark went to change her diaper tonight and the band aid had come off and she had "bled all over in her blankets!"

The doctor declared her perfect, which I already knew, and healthy.


  1. What a beautiful baby! I can't wait to see her!

  2. HOLY COW! How oh how could she gain 2 lbs in 14 days. Oh, that's right. Reflect back on her sisters. Cute x infinity (for the engineers)
