1st trip to the Dr.

We had our first trip to the Dr. about a week ago...well, on the 13th. Our pediatrician just wanted to check him out. I wanted to share the pictures.
Here we are waiting...
Here he is getting weighed. At the first visit he weighted 7lbs. 9 oz. We went back to the Dr. 3 days after this visit just to make sure he was gaining weight and he was up to 7lbs. 15 oz. - so almost back to birth weight. Which I was really relieved about because it is so hard to tell how much they are eating when you are nursing. But he is doing good!

Getting his head measured (which he obviously didn't like)...still right around 14.
Waiting on the Dr.
He was out!
Getting check out by the Dr. And trying to measure his length has been so confusing. In the hospital they measured him at 18.5 (which I think he is for sure longer than this). Keith said they were still working on his breathing and they didn't really try and stretch him out. But at the first Dr. visit she got 19 3/4 and at the second one they measured him at 20 1/4. So who knows!
Our pediatrician Dr. Henley who we love so far. But we figured with a name like Henley of course we would love him!
All done and ready to go.
Since his first 2 visits were so good we don't have to go back until his 2 month check up which is when he'll get some shots. Sad!
