1st Month Appointment…

I can’t believe it has been a month already (+ 6 days). I’ve survived! 😛

Mia’s stats:
weight 10 lb 1 oz
length 22 1/2 in long

The biggest shocker was weight. I have noticed that she was getting heavier but not this heavy. She does eat well. 😆

She had one shot. Cried a bit but she was okay.

Next appointment: Jan 14

First Doctor’s Visit…

For Mia at 8 days old. This is her first trip since getting home 5 days ago.

The doctor wanted to check her her weight and other various body checks.

Mia is gaining weight wonderfully!!! She was 7lb 4oz when born. The lowest weight at the hospital was 6lb 6oz. When she left the hospital on Friday (Nov. 14), she was 6lb 11oz. 5 days later, she is at 7lb 6oz. Yippee!! And also no shots this visit.

Here she is at the doctor’s office.

First Doctor's Visit

Her next appointment is on Dec. 17.

Another First…

Diego went to the dentist for the first time today!

Eric and I went but only one of us could go into the room with him.  Diego chose his Papa to go with him.  This was a good thing too because Eric sat in the chair and Diego was sitting/leaning on him.  This would have been impossible with me. 😆

Eric went with him and I sat in the reception area.  I was able to see and hear them anyway so it was okay.

The good news:  NO cavities.   Also, it doesn’t look like there will be a space problem for his permanent teeth.

The bad news (sort of):  We have to start to really get him to drink from a cup and not a “sippy cup.”  The good thing is Diego like to drink from a cup but due to laziness and trying to avoid spillage, we haven’t really pushed it.

He had some build up so we went ahead with a teeth cleaning. He did really well. The one thing he did not like was the spit suction thingie. Once he was done, he got three stickers and the dentist goody bag (toothbrush, floss and toothpaste).

When he came out, he showed me his shiny white teeth and told him that I was so proud of him.  And I am.

First Somersault…

Diego did his first unassisted forward roll (somersault) at Little Gym! He did it on one of those wedge thingies. We were just so proud. We are going to sign him up for the next class. He is moving up from Beast (19 months to 2.5 years) to Super Beast (2.5 years to 3 years) class. He started as a Bird (10 to 18 months) first. *sniff, sniff*
