First Dr. Appointment - 5 Days old.

We went to Paisley's first doctor appointment today. (Of course when we pulled up it said "flu clinic here" so I freaked & immediately completely covered her up in her carrier!) We had a feeling that they did not measure her right at the hospital. She seemed longer than 17 1/2 inches and also Ryder was 21 1/2 when born and we didn't think she was 4 inches shorter than him. Plus, Daniel saw them measure her and thought it wasn't quite long enough, well sure enough she is 19 1/2 inches! :) So unless she's super baby and has grown 2 inches in 5 days - they measured her wrong. She's already 7lbs 11oz ounces which is a good amount above her 7lb 4oz birth weight. Usually breastfed babies drop in weight a good amount in the first week, so the doctor was surprised and said she looks just perfect.
And yes, she got all dressed with a bow in her hair for her first outing...

A bow at her first doctor's appointment? Oh Lord, does Daniel have any inkling what you're about to start spending on clothes and accessories for the little princess??!! :)
(You know I am secretly jealous you have a girl to play dress up with!)

She is so sweet! Yeah, the measured Colton wrong at the hospital too and they shorted him about the same as Paisley-- 2 inches. I love the name by the way.
