Emma's Newborn Checkup

On the 12th, we took Emma for her newborn checkup with Dr. Edwards at the Pediatric Center. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Edwards. Before Dr. Edwards Owen hated going to the doctor and now when we mention about going to the doctor he always asks, "Dr. Edwards?"

Emma weighted in at 6 pounds 4 ounces. She gained a half pound in just 10 days! Since she had some time to finally stretch out, she measured an inch longer than the 18 inches she measured at birth. Dr. Edwards was so excited for us. He checked all her reflexes and pronounced her perfect. He took the time to make sure we were up to speed on baby care and even asked about Owen. He estimated she was 37 weeks at birth.
