1 Week Old and First Dr. Visit











Molly turned 1 week old today. This morning we gave Molly her first sponge bath at home. She was pretty content while wrapped up in the towel and getting her hair washed.
This afternoon Bobby and I took her to her first doctor's appointment with Dr. Powell, the kids' pediatrician. Dr. Powell oddly enough, was Bobby's pediatrician as a kid as well and we really adore him. She looked great with no signs of jaundice and weighed 7 pounds 4 1/2 ounces. He initially wanted us to come in next Monday for a weight check. Luckily, we have a digital baby scale at home, so we can just call in with her weight periodically, reducing her exposure to sick kids at the doctor's office. Here are a few pictures from today.
