Today was Madison's first appointment with the doctor, and it went very well. In fact, the doctor's diagnosis was that she's perfect, which I obviously knew, but it's good to have a professional to confirm these things. Everything is going well, and Madison now stands at 8 lbs. 4 oz. Now, keep in mind that she's ten days old. They usually lose weight the first little while, and are expected to be at their birth weight at two weeks. Madison was, if you recall, 7 lbs. 8 oz. at birth. I said she was a little piggy!

So yes. Everything came out fine, and the doctor was amazed with how easygoing, amiable, and alert my little piggy is. It's also kind of funny how a baby can change the whole atmosphere of a place. We took her in there and suddenly everything is all light and happy. The nurse made the comment that we made their whole day by bringing in a baby. The doctor did the same as we were leaving. It's kind of a magical thing, you know what I mean? There's nothing like a baby to make you smile.

The poor thing did have to get her foot poked, though. She had to have her ten day PKU test, which tests for a few things. She wasn't overly impressed with that, though she only cried briefly. Of course, she had a death grip on my finger and then stuck it in her mouth and started sucking on it furiously. Poor thing. And now she's sleeping on me after her ordeal. I think such a thing deserves lots of snuggling, so that's what she'll be getting today. Not that she doesn't get that everyday, of course.

So that's it for now. I need a nap myself, and so will curl up here on my recliner with her and catch some z's. It's very comfortable, after all.

Laura left not long ago for the hospital, meaning her baby is going to be born at some point tomorrow! That's so cool! I get to be a godmother again! Poor Peter kind of stared blankly and Bree had to help him out to the car. Laura made Mikel carry her and he was nice enough to agree. This time. Isn't he sweet?

Of course, now I have to wait. Grr. These things take too long. Which is probably good to a large extent, but it doesn't make it any easier. It's not like in the sitcoms where you see someone go into labour and then a few minutes later they have the baby. Puhlease. At least I will still be able to sleep tonight with the Vicodin, or I'd likely wear myself out by staying up the entire night.

More good news, too. John never showed up to take me to the SGR meeting that I was supposed to go to (although I don't know why since not much ever happens), so I didn't have to worry about any of that. Found out yesterday that Lidicé is pregnant now, too. Hopefully that'll turn out all right since they haven't got any insurance or anything. Lots of pregnancies going around these days. Which is cool. I like babies. ::grins::
