Ashley's First Checkup

Two days after turning one month old, Ashley went for her first checkup at the hospital.

First, she had her temperature taken.

Then, she was put on the scale, she was 3.4kg/7.5lbs at birth and now she is almost 5kg/11lbs.

This was followed by measuring her height. She was 49 cm/19.3 in and now she is 55 cm/21.7 in.

Next was getting her first month's vaccination. Ouch!

She let out her loudest cry since birth and her face turned bright red.

5 seconds later, she was snoozing.....Zzzzz.... Guess it was not that painful after all.

Finally, she got her ears checked and she passed the hearing tests on both ears.

That same night, Dad watched TV while she slept on his chest. Just look at that mouth! It cracks me up!

Ashley, I can't wait to share my toys with you!

Hi Dino,

Sorry I haven't visited in ages! My human's been really busy and hasn't had time to help me visit my friends!!

Aw...I was just thinking how amazing it was that Ashley was sleeping so peacefully through all the check-ups until I came to the photo of her bawling after her vaccination!!! :-) Not that I blame her...!

Your new haircut is looking really good now that it's growing out slightly...that's like my coat now! :-)
