Abigail Stats

We saw Dr. Wasserman yesterday for Abigail, and here are her updates (she was 5 weeks, 6 days at the appointment). The newest measurements are in purple so you can see her development:

Birth Height - 20 inches  - now 21 1/2 inches (55th percentile)

Birth weight: 6 lbs, 5 oz - now 8 lbs, 9 oz (30th percentile)

Head circumference: 14 1/2 inches (50th percentile) - don't know what we started at when she was born!

Weight for length (like BMI for adults): 10% (I thought this was low but normal is anywhere from 5-85%)

Basically, Abigail is long and lean like her daddy! She is healthy, although she has a runny nose, it is nothing to worry about and we are treating it appropriately! Also, Abs got her 2nd HepB shot at the appointment and I won't lie, I teared up. And when I heard that shriek of pain...it about killed me! Good thing Daniel was holding her. She got to walk out of the office and to the car in her daddy's arms and by the time we got to the car, of course, she was just fine!
