Rebekah and the Bear (4/15/09)

Rebekah had her 6-week checkup and her first set of shots on Tuesday: 21 3/4 inches long (21 in. at birth) and 7 lbs. 5 oz. (7 lbs. 3 oz. at birth; 6 lbs. 3 oz. at her one-week checkup). She is perfectly healthy right now, although the pediatrician wants to keep an eye on her weight. When she was born she was in the 33rd percentile and now she's in the 25th percentile, but she's still gaining an acceptable 1/2 oz. per day. We chose the shirtless and sockless picture so you can see what a chunk she really is--no ribs can be seen.

This weekend we're addressing a controversial subject on this blog: who Rebekah looks like, her mother or father. Check back and weigh in if you'd like to do so!


  1. She looks like her mother of course!!!! Beauty runs in our family!

  2. You need to see the evidence first... It may be a resounding win for me.
