16 Days and Counting

Well Kylie is 16 days old today and what a busy day it has been. Slightly after midnight, after one of her normal nightly feedings, Mommy noticed that her umbilical cord had fallen off. This was rather fortunate as today was also her very first doctor’s visit. The doctor gave her a clean bill of health and even took care of finalizing the umbilical cord by cauterizing it with some silver nitrate. Kylie now weighs 10lbs 1 ounce and the doctor is happy with this 1lb 9 ounce gain. This was good news as Mommy had been worried that perhaps she was not getting enough food. There were a few other things that we had some questions about, but everything is normal and all is well. The next doctors visit is looking to be interesting as Kylie will be receiving some shots. So we will get to see how she reacts to a needle.
