For once, this was a planned and UNEVENTFUL doctor's visit. Yay!
Lola started off, when she was born, at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 20 inches long. She now weighs a whopping 9 pounds, 2.5 ounces and is 21.5 inches long. She is in the 90th percentile for both weight and length. So our little one is growing, which is fantastic.
More importantly, I suppose, is that she has tested negative for all the possible diseases and conditions that they test newborns for, which is great. She was given a clean bill of health -- and we can even stop using the eye cream since her eye infection has cleared!
So, for the first time in a few weeks, we had a boring visit to the doctor's office, which was a very nice change of pace.
We are now preparing to celebrate Ray's birthday tomorrow, Friday, and getting ready for our big week next week. Ray will be in St. Cloud for job training throughout the week so Lola and I will be spending the week in the Twin Cities. The idea of five days without Ray or any other helpers just seems a bit daunting for me right now... And shopping sounds like fun!
Thanks for checking on us!
