Before even touching the infant, notice the following: color, posture/tone, activity, size, maturity, and quality of cry.

This infant has a normal pink color, normal flexed posture and strength, good activity and resposiveness to the exam, relatively large size (over 9 pounds), physical findings consistent with term gestational age (skin, ears, etc), and a nice strong cry.
