Kivrin was 6 weeks old on Saturday! We can’t believe how quickly the time has passed – hopefully we don’t look too much worse for the experience. Earlier today, Dan teased me about forgetting something, and I reminded him that I haven’t had more than 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep in a really long time!

Lissa and Kivrin on her 6 week birthday! Kivrin is rapidly outgrowing her 0-3 month clothes and her size 1 diapers. We are trying to keep using the smaller diapers until we run out of them, and we will try to wear some favorite outfits a few more times before we pack them away.

Daniel and Kivrin at the doctor’s office for our 6 week checkup. Kivrin weighed 11 pounds, 8 ounces and measured 22 inches. All of the nurses found a reason to stop by our exam room to admire the baby. The doctor examined Kivrin, talked to her parents, and even took a Polaroid picture of our family to “immortalize us on the wall” of his practice. Kivrin watched her mommy and daddy each bravely get TWO shots — a flu vaccine and a pertussis (whooping cough) booster — but she doesn’t get any immunizations of her own until her next appointment, in a month.
