Cole's first doctor's appointment

This morning, Dave and I had our first doctor's appointment with baby Cole. Everything went really well:

  • First and foremost, Dave and I arrived at the doctor's office a few minutes early - no small feat for first time parents who've never had to pack a diaper bag, feed and change a baby, and drive to the doctor's office!
  • Cole's gained 4+ ounces since we were discharged from the hospital on Friday afternoon. Not to shabby for 2.5 days.
  • Cole's in the 60th percentile for weight and the 64th percentile for head circumerence. Just like Garrison Keillor says, all of the children are "above average" in Minnesota.
  • And, most reassuringly, it appears our list of new parent questions was normal - we received no looks of shocking disapproval!
We have our next doctor's appointment on Tuesday, March 18th to see if Cole's back to his birth weight. It's nice to know we only have to go 7 more days for another reassuring check in with the doctor to make sure we aren't doing too bad at this parenting thing.
