Dr. visit and Photo shoot

Abby got a great report at the pediatrician today: 9 lbs. 9 1/2 oz and 21 3/4 inches long! She is right at the 50th percentile in weight and height--practically perfect in every way. :) We discussed her continuing reflux issues, and the doctor decided to take her off the meds and try a different formula that will be thicker (i.e., harder to spit up). I'm going to get the new stuff tomorrow, so hopefully it will help. We go back in another month for her 2 month check-up and shots.

We also had our first "professional" photo shoot to get some nice pictures of Abby. Christy, a friend of ours from Harding, is trying to build up her photography portfolio and offered to take some shots for us for free! She did a wonderful job, and I'm excited to order prints soon. Here are a few of my favorites:

Such sweet pictures! I was glad to see at least one where she wasn't sleeping. :)

Love these pictures, Rachel! I think my favorite is the one with you and Casey standing up with Abby in your arms. Both your faces are just precious -- and Abby is precious in all of the pictures. :) I'm so glad she is gaining weight and growing even with her reflux issues. Hopefully this new formula will help some.
