One Month Checkup

We saw a different doctor in the practice today and she was AWESOME. We've been really happy with all the doctors we've met and I'm so glad I chose this practice. They rock.

Anyway...

My boobs must be making skim milk because we've got a little munchkin on our hands. He's up to 8 lbs 8 oz, which is the 10-25th percentile, and his length is now 21.5 inches, which is the 50th percentile. But the doctor was happy with his growth and overall health (minus the cold he's still fighting) and said we're doing a great job. Carter got his second hepatitis shot and screamed his little head off. Poor thing. But I nursed him right afterward (literally within 45 seconds) and he's been sleeping ever since.

Haha, you said your boobs make skim milk. Ha. I like that one. Glad you found a great doc. Thats half the battle. If I could only be so lucky to find myself a doc I like that much.

Ha. Skim milk.

Bird won't be happy hearing about the skim (skin) milk. He is built like your brother was...long and lean. Since he looks so much like Chris, I guess we expected a BIG boy--too early to tell! You are doing a wonderful job as a Mom...and I would know!!!

Yay for a good dr. and a growing baby.

not a thing in the world wrong with being in the 10-25 percentile...that's precisely where my youngest granddaughter resides :)

He's so adorable!
