1 month well check

Kristen had her 1 month well check this morning. She's up to 7 lbs. 8 oz. (she's gained 9 oz. in the last 2 weeks) and measures 20 1/2 inches long. She's at the 10th percentile for weight and 25th percentile for height. She's got some reflux, which causes her to gag occasionally. It's a little unnerving to witness because she can't seem to catch her breath when it happens, but it's apparently not uncommon for infants. Zantac should help with the discomfort.

All in all, Dr. Edmonds said Kristen is doing great! We'll go back to see her in a month for another well child check...right before we head back to Children's Mercy for the CT scan. Dr. Edmonds said the CT scan was nothing to be concerned about. It should be very quick to do, and they may not even have to sedate Kristen (I was concerned they would have to). We're so blessed to have a wonderful pediatrician's office here!
