First Well Visit

I took Mattie to the pediatrician today for her very first well visit.  At two weeks she is giving her brother a run for his money in the percentile categories.   Not only is my big girl back to her birth weight, but she has gained an additional 1.9 lbs putting her current weight at 10.1 lbs.  She weighs more than 90% of babies her own age and gender (90th percentile).  As far as height, she's sprouting like a weed.  She has gone from 21.25 " to 22.10" catapulting her into the 95th percentile.  And then of course the head - not off the charts like Evan, thank goodness, but still in the "rather large" department.  She is in the 90th percentile at 39 cm.

Nothing but good things to report which always makes for a nice visit.  In addition to that Mattie is feeding well  (obviously ) and her demeanor is nothing like her bro so far.  For those of you that don't know, that is a very good thing.  She is very sweet and completely content unless of course there's a dirty diaper to report or a feeding that needs to happen.  No sweat.

So far - happy mama!
