Alexis' First Doctor Appointment with Grandpa

Alexis will hold onto anything...even Gigi's fingers

The proud Papa with his little Girl

The Happy Family at Alexis' 1st Doctor Appt.

When will Grandpa come and check me to see if I'm growing right?

I weigh 6 lbs 8.5 oz! I weighed 6 lbs 9 oz. at birth.
So that means I'm eating enough....Thanks Mommy!

Grandpa & I have a great time together!

Grandpa checks my ears and I just love it!

Grandpa checks the red reflex in my eye to screen for eye cancer or retinoblastoma as Grandpa calls it and I cry because it's sooo fun!

Grandpa checks my femoral pulses to screen for heart disease. He also checked my hips for congenital hip dislocation. Thanks Grandpa for making sure I am healthy!

Grandpa makes the diagnosis that I am AWESOME! By the way Grandma agrees!

After all that hard work Mommy comforts me with her finger.

Grandma Hawley, Dad, Mom, & I are happy with my first visit to the Doctor's office at 4 days old.

At last I am going home after my big visit to Doctor Grandpa's office. I am happy with my binkie and am holding it very tightly!

How cool would it be if "awesome" was a real diagnosis? haha.

Alexis is so so cute. :)
