Xian’s one month check went off without a hitch. However, it was quite a bit different than I had anticipated. Upon arriving at the clinic, we were ushered into a private waiting room. Shortly thereafter, we were led in to see the doctor. Instead of the typical bed, the doctor’s room consisted of what appeared to be a dentist’s chair, complete with scary looking instruments. The doctor though was amazing! She suctioned out Xian’s nose, looked in her ears and mouth, and then gave us a clean bill of health. At five weeks, Xian now weighs 7.3 pounds. Our little peanut is growing up! Her clothes are finally starting to fit her. This completely shocked the doctor who wanted to know where we found clothes as small as we did. Here in Taiwan, they do not bother with buying/selling newborn size clothes. They buy larger clothes and just fold up and tie back the excess fabric.
