First Visit to the Pediatrician

Today, Ethan had his first check-up at the pediatrician's office.  He wasn't very happy about going but calmed down once we got there (and changed his diaper).  Before Dr. Hain came in to check on him, Ethan caught his first glimpse of himself in the mirror.  The expression on his face was priceless and I'm glad I caught a picture of it!!

The doctor said everything is looking perfect with him -- he was the same weight as his discharge weight (7lb 13oz) and although he has a tiny bit of jaundice in his face it is normal and nothing to worry about.  The exciting news for us was that since he has been eating so well since he was born we could go ahead and give him a pacifier -- that is going to be such a help (and I'm super happy that the nursery nurse gave us so many of the hospital soothies)!

Getting his check-up.
Being weighed.
First time using a pacifer -- I think he is trying to figure out what it is.
