First US Pediatrician Appointment

Gabriella went to the dr. today. I wanted to have her nasty cough/congestion checked out. He said that as long as she continues to eat and act fine, it should work it's way out in time. He did give a prescription to help the wheezing/breathing similar to one she was already taking. She got her heel pricked for some tests and boy did she pitch a royal fit when they were trying to squeeze it onto the test paper.

We go back in two weeks for her 6 month checkup. The doctor said she looks very healthy and has definitely done well as far as her weight gain.


Here are some photos from last night.



Not 5 minutes after her bath and changing into the pink PJs, I was feeding her and could tell she was "filling" her diaper. Well, I then felt wet and warm. UGHHH. Blowout. Nothing like a clean baby needing hosing down....

Here she is checking out her Bumbo seat this afternoon.

She is just too adorable. My daughter is one month older. Her father is Guatemalan although you could never tell by looking at her. She got my skin and hair traits( i'm fair with blonde hair). Lexi (my daughter) has huge eyes too and the same mouth as Gabriella. Something funny too is Lexi's middle name IS Gabriela. Lol. Well we have really enjoyed reading about your adoption journey. my husband and I eventually want to have our own adoption agency for Guatemalan children. He grew up there and remembers seeing the poorer children and knows that there are so many who need homes. I can't wait to read future blogs and see how your new blessing grows and adjusts. She is beautiful and you guys are so lucky!
