Norah had her one month check up this morning, and she has gained a few pounds and grown an inch, so her stats today were:
9 lbs 13 oz
The doctor was pleased with her weight gain since that's really her main job right now: eat and grow.
She checked out healthy in every other aspect as well, despite the fact that she still has the lingering congestion of her cold (nothing to be concerned about, he said). She does have unfortunate skin, though, and he noted that by saying that "she's a cute baby, but she has bad skin." It's not really a surprise that she has sensitive skin because both Jerry and I have seasonal allergies and sensitive/dry skin, so there was really no escape for her on that front. So, we just have to use some hypo-allergenic lotion and give it time (and breast milk -- which seems to be the "magic" cure all that both the doctors and the literature suggest).
But, despite the "bad skin" she still thinks she's a pretty face in the mirror and we do too!
