Ruthe Clementine is one month old! She was not a fan of her photo-shoot. It might have had something to do with the fact that we woke her up in the middle of her early-evening-nap... She was also a little mad at my mom, who told her that there would be cupcakes and then didn't deliver. I won't lie, I was looking forward to cupcakes, too.
We are just incredibly smitten with this girl. Everything she does is absolutely adorable. And she knows it. She thinks it's hilarious. I catch her every now and then with a little smirk on her face because she knows we're all wrapped around her tiny fingers. :)
I asked her nurse for her most recent weight, an last night she came in at a whopping 7lbs. 14oz.! If you remember, that's four ounces up from her birth weight. She was down to 6lbs. 8oz. at one point, so she's definitely headed the right direction now. Even if it is mostly in her chubby cheeks!
We also got the results back from her blood tests. The doctors were concerned that she might have some problems with her immune system, caused by the diGeorge Syndrome. All the tests came back completely normal! It is something that can change, so we'll have to have the tests run again after a while. And Ruthe will be referred to an immunologist for a follow-up, and possibly a closer look at all her immuno-globulin and t-cell levels. But for now we are just really happy that she's not going to be the-girl-in-the-plastic-bubble!!
AND we got a bow to actually stay in her hair!! She still only has that little Alfalfa-esque spike on the very top of her head, but it's finally long enough to collect all the hair into it a little tuft for a clippie.
