Grace was so flippin cute the morning of our appointment. She woke in the best mood and looked pretty adorable as we left the house. Georgia left work a little before me in the afternoon to pick up the baby so they were already in the lobby when I arrived. There is nothing I love more than walking into a room and seeing how excited Grace is to see either of us. She usually smiles, squeals and as the picture below shows – puts her hands in her mouth lookin all giddy!
Similar to our previous appointment, Gracie chatted us up the entire time often interrupting Dr. C. She really seems to like her pediatrician, which is great for us because we LOVE her! Dr. C is awesome with Grace. She always takes time to sit down and have a “conversation” with Gracie and has never once made us feel rushed. I usually have about a million questions and she is always happy to answer all them. This appointment was one that we were very much looking forward to because we knew we were finally getting the "okay" to introduce solids! I did a little bit of research on stage 1 feeding prior to the appointment and to be honest, with all the conflicting information I came across I was more confused than anything. We ended up having a very lengthy talk with Dr. C about our feeding plan and I know I left feeling much better. We have since started Gracie on solids (organic carrots to be exact) but we are only on day 3 of food #1, so I’ll blog about our adventures in solids once Grace has tried a couple other fruits and veggies. Until then, here are some stats and more pictures. :)
· Height: 24.5 inches – 27th percentile
· Weight: 14lbs, 7oz – 44th percentile
· Head Circumference: 16.8 inches – 70th percentile
And just because it’s so cute, here’s one more picture of baby girl!
