You are about to be subjected to a long line of videos and pictures, all of which I find fantastic because I'm a new mom, and isn't it my job to inundate anyone willing to look and listen with pictures of my sleeping baby, my sleeping baby, and my sleeping baby?
We switched to a different pediatrician and met her this morning. The first ped came into our hospital room and met with us when Hazel was a day old. We had our first week appointment with him but decided to switch to a different office closer to our house. We love our new pediatrician! She's great!
And Hazel is doing fantastic - her stats...
* Date of birth (11-22): 7 lbs. 14 oz., 19 3/4 inches long, head 14 inches around
* Day we left the hospital (11-25): 7 lbs. 3 oz.
* First lactation appointment (11-26): 6 lbs. 14 oz.
* One week appointment (11-28): 7 lbs. 4 oz.
* Two week appointment (12-8): 8 lbs. 8 oz., 21 inches long, head 14 5/8 inches around
I am sooo proud of Hazel - she's growing so much and doing so well. She impressed the ped when she held her head up and looked around (both ways) during some tummy time in the office. Her eyes are doing great, her arms and legs move in sync as well as independent of each other...I could keep going, but I'll stop...We're just thrilled with her growth!
This picture is from last night after decorating the Christmas tree (which I'll post about soon, because this year's tree takes the cake...) - Hazel was a little pooped after a long day. We visited the Canby Tamale Festival yesterday afternoon and then stopped by Leslie and Adam's to visit and take a look at some houses in their neighborhood. And then last night Rick and Karen stopped by with food and time on their hands - we handed Hazel over and decorated the tree.
Okay, so Ricky and Tiffany fly in from South Korea today. And they're back for good! We can't wait to go see them. Actually, I need to wrap up Hazel so we can load up the car and go pick them up from the airport right now...I'm taking the camera, though, so I'll post about the "reunion" soon, too - this is the first time Ricky and Tiffany will meet Hazel, so we're all pretty excited! Okay, another video before I go, though. Enjoy, friends. Enjoy.
