Emma had her first month (technically 5.5 weeks) check up today with the pediatrician. Dr. O'Kelley actually goes to our church and is super nice so we're thankful to be able to see him. Emma is up to just over 9 lbs and 20 1/4 inches long! Right where she should be. Other than a little cradle cap on her forehead (nothing some cream and time won't clear up), she got a clean bill of health AND was deemed "beautiful" by Dr. O'Kelley - but we didn't need an expert to tell us that. :)
Developmentally, she is starting to develop a real personality. She has begun cooing those sweet baby noises. She even is starting to smile at us. However, she also can have a bit of an attitude when she's impatient for food or sleepy. Gee, wonder where she gets that. Hee Hee.
