4 Weeks On

June 27, 2007

I can’t believe that Kirsten is going to be 4 weeks old today. At her first check-up with the pediatrician ( Monday 4 June) after we brought her home she weighed 6 lbs 9 oz (2.98 kilos). When she was in for a check up on Monday (25 June) she weighed 8 lbs 11.5 oz (3.95 kilos). Kirsten was unfortunately born tongue tied (absolutely no movement in her tongue), but with a simple procedure this was fixed last Friday by our pediatrician. We now love watching her being able to stick her tongue out. Kirsten has also grown about 0.5 inches as she is now about 21 inches long. We get a lot of comments about her being blonde as it is a rarity around Phoenix with all the hispanics.

My mother, Anne-Lise, has been here since the day after Kirsten’s birth, and I really don’t know what I’d have done without her help. We’re going to be sad to see her leave on Monday (2 July), but she will be back again in early September with my father so that’s only 2 month’s away.
