2 Week Dr's Appt

On March 7th, Gabbie went to the doctor for her 2 week appointment.  We made the decision to see Dr. Dean with the Lee's Summit Physician Group.  She came very highly recommended to us by lots of people.  Chris had to take her to see a doctor from that group on February 25th as her billyrubin levels were high.  Luckily in one day, they were slowly dropping which meant that she didn't need a blanket or treatment.  :)  Any how, we saw Dr. Dean on this day in which I was very impressed.  She is very young, personable, and willing to answer any of my crazy questions.  At this appointment, we found out that we have a very healthy little girl.  All of the blood tests that they did at the hospital checking for 35 different disorders came back normal and negative which made me really breathe a sigh of relief.  She weighed 7'15 when she was born.  When she was dismissed from the hospital, she weighed 7'10.  In a matter of two weeks she had regained all of the weight she had lost and was up to 8lbs.  This put her in the 37%ile for her weight.  I wasn't too surprised as she is skinny and long at this point.  Her length when she was born 20 1/4 inches long.  In a matter of two weeks she was up to 21 3/4 which put her in 92%ile.  I have a feeling we are going to have a very tall little girl.  Her head circumference was 35cm which put her in the 24%ile.  She has a very small head that is for sure.  It is alright though as her brain has plenty of time to grow.  She doesn't have to go back for another 6 weeks and at that time she will get her first shots.  :(  I am already dreading that to say the least.
