Follow up at Children's Hospital

We had a follow-up appt at Children's yesterday for Noah. Once again we got up early and headed to Dallas. Noah has been great in the car so far...all he does is sleep! Noah got a good check-up. The oxygen level was 98 in his blood (95-100 is normal), his blood pressure was good, and he seemed to be very healthy. He has gained a pound since birth and has grown almost an inch. Thankfully our next appt will be in Abilene with a cariologist that has a remote office he attends occasionally. My mom had been staying with us and followed us to the appointment. She did not come back to Abilene with us so we are on our own. We are so thankful she was able to spend almost 3 weeks with us to help out with Noah!!
Aunt Leah met us in Dallas. She came to lunch at Joe's Crab Shack with me, Pete, mom, and my friend Kristen for my 27th birthday. Leah just got a job teaching kindergarten.
My long-time friend Kristen met up with us so she could meet Noah.
This is Noah after his 2 week appt with his pediatrician. Poor thing got his heel stuck again! He is a brave little guy.
One night he was a little fussy so Pete found a position that made Noah happy. Noah loves cuddling with his dad!
Pete's cousins (and mine) stopped by to visit on their cross country drive. Noah loves his cousins Nii and Jana. It was great to have them visit.
