Before I had Hazel staying at home, not working or doing too much of anything, drove me to unspeakable acts. I was so worried that I would be bored at home with her, and that is sometimes true, at least while she is still so young. Yet the time seems to fly by, and I can't believe my baby is 5 and half weeks old already! We took her in for a check-up on Monday and she is growing like crazy. She's at the 75% for height and is gaining weight appropriately to match, weighing in at 9 lbs 11 oz.
Not everything was perfect, though. She was sound asleep at the appointment, so the doctor got a really great listen to her heartbeat and noticed a murmur. The two of us are headed to Syracuse tomorrow to a pediatric cardiologist to get it thoroughly checked out. We have to be there at 8 am, which means Amos will be dropped off at work at an awesome 6 am. I am worried, even though everyone and their momma has assured me most of the time it's either temporary, as in will close up on its own, or minor. Still, I think it's having to go to a "pediatric cardiologist" that makes it freaky; someone so small shouldn't have to see such a serious doctor (say that 5 times fast!).
