Alyssa had her first Doctor’s appointment today. She is 8 days old. She is also perfect, the doctor told Laura and Brandon that! Here are some Sats…
Head Circumference – 33cm at birth — 35cm today (57th percentile)
Weight – 8 pounds 6.7 ounces at birth — 8 pounds 3 ounces when she left the hospital — 8 pounds 7 ounces today (50th percentile)
Length – 20.5 inches at birth — 21 inches today (90th percentile)
She did really good and only cried when she had her blood drawn for the PKU test and when they gave her the Hepatitis B shot.
Laura is doing so good breast feeding. The doctor did tell her she would need to give her 1/2 a drop of Vitamin B a day (how do you give 1/2 a drop???)
One of her eyelids, her right one sometimes looks like it’s a lazy eye. The doctor told us that her eyelid is just so thin that she doesn’t want to open it. He turned off the lights and she opened right up!
