First doctor's appointment

Isabella's first doctor's appointment was yesterday at the Oak Adoptive Center at Akron Children's Hospital. She meet and played with Dr. Kempf. Isabella was really good for her. She proved to weight less (18.4 lbs vs. 19.5 which we were told) and to be shorter by 1.5 inches but she is still doing well at the 50% percentile for her age. We see her primary pediatrician next Thursday.

When we finished with Dr. Kempf we have to go to the outpatient lab for Isabella's bloodwork. This was awful! The nurse stuck her 4 times but couldn't get the needle in her vein. Isabella was very upset (so was mommy) and was kicking and screaming until she turned tomato red. The nurse stopped and said we'd have to bring her back another time since she was so mad. We are headed there today unfortunately. I'll let you know how it goes.

Enjoy these couple pictures of Isabella's first nap at the Marriott. This was about an hour after we picked her up.

LOOK AT THAT WILD HAIR!!! She is so precious. It's only been 2 days since I last saw her and miss her terribly. Hope she's sleeping more like that for you.

I love you all,
Jules ;-)
