Panda cubs, they grow up so fast!
The National Zoo's baby giant panda weighed in at 6.73 pounds during an exam on Wednesday -- she was just five pounds a week ago, when the panda cam was turned back on at the end of the government shutdown.
The cub also received her first vaccination like a trooper; the zoo said in a news release that the nearly two-month-old panda "rested comfortably" through much of her exam.
She's sure not looking unhappy in this photo:

Momma bear Mei Xiang seems pretty happy, too, if this panda cam screenshot from Wednesday morning is anything to go by:
Remember late August, when our girl looked like this?
