Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News!

Today we went for Addison's one month check up! Wow! How a month flies by! We received a great report. She is now 9 lbs! Wow! Remember, she was 7.5 pounds at birth. He is happy with her growth. She is in the 50th percentile for weight and height. He said her baby acne is normal and will go away with time. We talked about her frequent spitting up lately and more fussiness. She even spit up right on Daddy's work shirt while were in the doctor's office, so Dr. G got to see what we are talking about. (Sorry Daddy, but that worked out well!) He is thinking she might have a little bit of reflux. So, we are going to omit some things from my diet and wait a little while to see if there is an improvement. He was pleased with how much she is eating and growing. He said we should be singing to her and reading to her now during her wake times, to help develop her cognitive abilities. (I am not sure he has heard either of us sing or he might not have suggested that...ha ha!) He also said we have so much to look forward to in the next month...that she will start smiling and flirting back with us. I was very emotional (big surprise!) about it being her one month...but held it together! yay!

Also, we had a wonderful weekend with our dear friends Marcus and Jessica, who flew in from Albuquerque to meet little Addie. It was great to see them and introduce them to our precious little angel! Pictures are below...

Here is a shot of Daddy when he got home from work today reading to Addie...just following Dr.'s orders! :-)Aunt Jess loves Baby Addison!Daddy likes to burp Addie like this...he says it makes her burp BIG!Addie looks so tiny with Uncle Marcus!
Chillin' in her SPA robe from Grandma Cece after a (very stressful) bath. She hates bath time! Maybe it's because Mommy gets the water too cold for fear of it being to hot! We're working on that!

Finally, we received Addie's proofs today from her photo shoot when she was 2 weeks old. If you click on the link below, you can check out the photos! :-) So sweet!

Yay! Thanks for the update! I check on you all the time! I am still looking forward to meeting her. Love Dr. G! Claire's been on a reflux med now for a month and it has made a WORLD of difference. Don't know if Addie has fussiness with her spitting up or not, but this decreased both for us. I go back to work in a week and a half, so I hope to see you before then!
