first ped. appointment

peanut had her first appointment at the pediatrician today!  she weighed 7lbs and 2oz. and she measured at 19.5 inches.  (not sure what that length is about, something about how the measure differently in the hospital?! i don't know...)  her head also measured 14 inches.  her little reflexes and everything were checked and she did great.  she got mad when dr. ski looked in her eyes and ears.  =)  her bilirubin level was at 10.2.  he said it was a little high, but not high enough for them to put her under the blanket, thank goodness.  he said it should continue to come down on it's own.  her next appointment is in 3 weeks.

p.s. austin's belly button fell off yesterday.  yay!

Ashton was 21 3/4" long at the hospital too & then @ his 1 wk check-up he was 20"... I asked them @ Dr. Ski's what the deal was & they said @ the hospital they measure all the curves (head, booty & all) haha
