Yesterday was Jayla’s two month check up. She is growing and progressing well. She is still a little on the small side (18th percentile for weight), but she is doing well. The next visit is at 4 months, but by then, we will have moved far away. That means we had to say goodbye to our wonderful pediatrician.
I am sad to have to leave Dr. B. We first met her when I was pregnant with Jillian and have really grown like her a lot. She is understanding of a new parent’s worries and offers great advice without being overbearing. The check ups always started with her asking how J and I are doing mentally, emotionally and even professionally. Then she would answer all our questions and tell us what big and small things would be coming up before the next visit. She treated the babies with a lot of care and concern. Just a really nice person and great doctor.
This is the first of many goodbyes that we will have to say as we prepare to leave the East coast. (I promise that my next post will be about our new life ahead…!) I am realizing that it will be very hard to leave the many friends and the community we have found here.
