One Week Check-Up

Maddie was not liking being weighed at the doctors. Although the scale says 7lbs. 7.5 oz. you have to deduct 1 oz for the diaper.

Snuggling on her changing table before heading out the our appointment.

One week old today.....so hard to believe!
Weight: 7lbs 6.5oz. (25th percentile)
Length: 21 inches (90th percentile)
Head Circumference: 13 3/4 inches (25th percentile)

Madison had her first doctor's appointment today. It was so great to meet Dr. Melanie Roscoe. She was so very kind and made us all feel at ease. Looks as though Madison checked out perfectly. What else would we expect. He, he, he. She now weighs 7lb. 6.5oz. At birth she weighed 7lb 7oz and upon discharge was 7lb 1oz. It is expected that newborns will loose weight and then should be back up to their birth weight by 2 weeks. Looks like we are headed in the right direction. YEAH Maddie!

We were both sad to see Daddy leave for work this morning. Definitely a tough morning, as it's been so nice to have John home for the past week. I know that it will take some time getting used to, but we DEFINITELY missed him today. Thankfully, we ave such AMAZING family support. I just do not know what we would do without them. Thank you so much especially to my mom for all the help you have been over the past week. I wish there was a way that I was able to repay you.
