We took GV into the pediatrician today for her third well baby appointment and, despite the tears she shed over her three vaccinations, I am glad to report that it went really well. She's a very healthy, happy baby and the doctor had nothing but positive things to say about her development and growth. Check out her stats:
Weight: 13 pounds 3 ounces (96% up from 22% week two)
Length: 23 inches (75% up from 50% week two)
Head Circumference: 15 3/4 inches (81% up from 26% week two)
Despite the diabetic baseline and the number of additional complications we had in the pregnancy, it seems that the care I took to make sure she'd be safe both in utero and after birth paid off. She's a perfectly normal baby and that is the most any mother - diabetic or not - could hope for! I just continue to pray to God that she stays healthy, happy and safe for her whole life... and may it be a long one.
