05-26-09 Autumn's 2nd Drs. Visit w/Peditrician

Today Autumn went for her second visit with her Pediatrician. While being checked over, here is what was determined with Autumn:

Weight: 9 lbs., 7 oz.
Length: 22 inches
Skull Measurement: I couldn't see well but it looked like the nurse was getting a measurement somewhere around 14-15

I also had her doctor look at two things I wanted to address concerning Autumn, she had a pellet/bebe size lump behind one of her ears, Doc said it was her lymph gland and was normal, then I had to have him look at an area that has shown up on her shoulder that has a raised rash appearance surrounding and on top of what looks like a broken blood vessel. To us adults, it looks like a broken spider vein. Doc said it is called a Superficial Hermangioma (birthmark). I was not happy about this but Doc said it should resolve itself as she ages and according to articles. This birth mark popped up about a month ago and runs in females over males due to the high estrogen. I will post a photo of her birthmark later.

Otherwise she checked out very healthy and Doc was pleased with her, commented how she is considered long and petite. OH NO, she will probably be long and lean with age like her half brother Cory and uncle James.

She also got her very first set of vaccines. Mommy could not handle the idea of Autumn crying and getting injections, Mommy doesn't do well with shots in general even for herself, so she had to leave the room and leave Daddy to tend to Autumn getting her shots/vaccines and then Mommy played nurturing mother after wards.
