First Pediatrician Visit

Kate had her first visit to the pediatrician today. It also marked the first visit for the three of us out of the house since coming home from the hospital. Our biggest fear was Kate getting upset/hungry while we are out, so Jean-Marie tried to feed her before we left. That was enough to get us to the doctors office (although, as a side note, Kate really hates the car seat).

While waiting in the office Kate didn't last long so we were admitted into our check-up room early so Jean-Marie could feed Kate one last time. This did the trick, but it also resulted in two diaper changes right before the doctor appeared.

Kate checked out all okay. She's lost 10 ounces since birth (which is normal) and he said her umbilical cord should fall off in the next week. Our next visit to him in a month will also be Kate's first set of shots. Ouch. Otherwise, all appears to be well.
