Annya - one month old

Posted by Xun  |  No comments

By Chinese tradition, the first-month-birthday is a milestone. There is a special term for it and a slew of rituals to follow. Fortunately I am only vaguely aware of these and totally unbothered by them. But my mother-in-law is here, so we ate red eggs. Why? Not sure. But I am not object to hard-boiled eggs.

The really significant and happy news for the day is brought from the doctor's visit. Again, the doctor gave me and Annya thumbs up for her development. And here are the numbers:

Weight: 9 lbs 10 oz (was born 7 lbs 13 oz)
Height: 1'9'' (was born 1'7'')
HC (Head Cirumference): 14.61'' (37.1 cm). It grew about 3cm.

Great. And she looks great and fat.

The following are the first "reading" pictures.
