Nayeli's First DR's Appointment
Nayeli put on her "Im a princess" gameface before we even arrived for her check up!
Nayeli kept her gameface, even durng her exam.
Nayeli was then tired from faking her annoyance with being poked and still, slept in Liz's arms.
Today, Nayeli had her first Dr's appointment, back at Kaiser. We all met her new Pediatrician and liked him. The DR checked Nayeli's post surgery scars and thought everything looks great. He also did an overall exam of her and noted nothing of concern. The DR said Nayeli's primary DR at UCSF called him and updated him on everything Nayeli has been through. Not a surprise, as Nayeli's DR is very detailed oriented.
Nayeli is 21.5 inches and weighs 8 pounds and 4 ounces. This is up from her birth weight of 6 pounds and 15 ounces and shows Nayeli is eating well, gaining weight, and growing overall.
After Nayeli's DR. appt, we went and Visited DR "M" and his wonderful crew of Nurses. DR "M" was our DR before Nayeli was born and was very emotially attached to our situation. DR "M" is also a great DR, as well as all of his staff members. They were all very happy and pleased to meet princess Nayeli in person. It was an emotional moment for all of us. Nayeli was a total princess throughout the DR appt and when we went to visit DR "M" and his staff members. We were both baffled by this fake "I'm a princess who never crys" attitude displayed by Nayeli. We both know Nayeli will be a handfull as she grows. Shane is already plotting his workout and has started shadow boxing in preparation of defending our daughter. As any hockey player would say, we hope he doesnt have to "drop the gloves" when Nayeli's first boyfriend comes over.
DR "M" and his crew! After much persuasion, DR "M" got to hold Nayeli, even though her head is sideways.....hahahahaha....Nayeli told us she put her head sideways so Daddy could be in the picture!
As usual, we thank everyone for following princess Nayeli and our journey. Please keep the positive thoughts, prayers, and nice comments coming.
