Second Doctor's Appointment

At this doctor's appointment, we saw one of Dr. Ouchi's fellow doctors, Dr. Miller.  He was the same doctor we had seen in the hospital when Ke'alohi was first born.  She weighed in at 9 pounds and 2 ounces, measured 21.5 inches and her head circumference was 15 inches.

Dr. Miller commented on how well Ke'alohi was doing when we put her on her stomach for "tummy time" and said that we should continue to do that everyday to help her strengthen her neck and back muscles.  He also assured us that she was growing fine because by the two-week mark they hope that the babies are back to their birth weight.  So since she was now past her birth weight, he told us that we did not have to worry about her gaining too slowly.  We are going to be feeding her on demand instead of on a set schedule.

Our next appointment is in six weeks, the two-month appointment, where she gets her first set of shots! Yikes!
