Doctor's Visit

Wanted to let you all know about the dr's appt yesterday. Okay...are you ready for 5 weeks....Adiah has gained 1 1/4 lbs and has grown 1 inch!!! Can you believe that? Her head circumference is up 1/2 inch which is good too. Her hair is growing like a weed and I've noticed underneath her old hair lots of new hair is growing in too. Wow, its amazing what good nutrition will do!! She didn't have to get as many shots as we were thinking because it turns out she got a few immunizations in China. And apparently she had chicken pox at one time because she never got the shot but is immune to it. So basically she got 4 shots yesterday (poor baby!) and the pediatric adoption dr. said he doesn't need to see us again. Just need to get set up with a new pediatrician when we get moved and finish up her shots there. I was preparing myself to stay up alot last night with a cranky baby but she slept all the way through the night. Don't know if I've mentioned before but I can't get any type of medicine down her throat. She promptly spits it all back out. She's a pro at that!! But I disguised a little Motrin in some yogurt and she ate it up. I'm SOOO sneaky!! Anyway, just wanted to let you all know what I found out yesterday. Praise Jesus for all of that! Also, if you could pray for my sister, Sara. I talked to her yesterday and she is feeling under the weather. Running a fever and has a sore throat. I know she wants to feel better for her trip home which is the DAY AFTER TOMORROW!!! Hallelujah!! Off to take kids to school in the massive down pour!!!!

That is incredible! Makes you wonder what they really feed them there. So sad.

So glad everything went so well.

Wow! An inch - that's great. She certainly seems to be flourishing with all the lovin' and good food you're giving her!
