Making Friends with the Pediatrician

Kate had a very busy day today with visits from nurses, doctors and guests. She passed her hearing test with flying colors and already shows signs of turning her head towards mom and dad's familiar voices when we call her. I always thought newborn babies don't open their eyes, but Kate regularly opens her eyes and looks around. I also underestimated how strong she can be -- she has no problem moving her head around and she is a very strong kicker!

The pediatrician gave Kate a thumbs up for today too. When asked if we could take his picture while examining Kate, he was excited at the idea and started posing for the camera. At one point when I was finished, he made us take another picture so he could pose while holding his stethoscope. Too funny.
