Yesterday we began the day going to see the geneticist, who both Noah and I liked very much. The doctor was not unrealistically optimistic, but gave us a starting point for where we should begin at home. In so many situations people want to compare Magdalena to a normal baby with how she is growing and what she does, but it sets unrealistic standards for how she is developing and how we should care for her. However, one of the things that we were given was a growth chart so that Noah and I can keep up with how Magdalena is doing for a T18 baby. Also, by meeting with this doctor we have a contact in order to learn more as we head down this unknown road.
Then, we were able to show off Magdalena to some of the people that I work with. Magdalena was then seen by the pediatrician for the first time.
We are so thankful that Magdalena rides well in her car seat. She is so small in comparison to the seat that I was suprised that she could get comfortable enough to sleep, which she did most of the day. I think that she enjoyed spending the day with both her mommy and daddy, even if it was in doctors' appointments.
Also, I want to shout for everyone to hear.....
HAPPY FOUR WEEK BIRTHDAY, MAGDALENA!!
