Bath Time and Other News

Vanessa had her first doctor's appointment today. The doctor said she looked terrific! Babies lose weight in their first few days of life, and Vanessa was at 6 lbs 5 oz when she came home from the hospital, but already she's exceded her birth weight, at 6 lbs 12 oz. She only cried very briefly when she got her first immunization. She's one tough little baby!

Below are some new pictures from this weekend.

It's never to early to start reading.

Vanessa wasn't too happy about her first bath at home.

She was much happier once she was bundled in a towel.

Here, Vanessa is posing with Miss Dee, an incredible homemade doll that will be bigger than her for a while.

Dean was excited to hold Vanessa. Vanessa seemed to be quite happy about the situation too.

Lisa said that it had been a long time since she had held such a tiny baby!
