His first trip was last Monday when he was 11 days old. On that first trip he weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces and he was 20 inches long. He had already gained back to his birth weight plus a little extra. (His birth weight was 7lb 6 oz. and his length was 19 3/4 inches)
Yesterday, he weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces and was 20 and 1/2 inches long! Dr. Deweese was really pleased that he was able to gain that much weight in a week! He said, "Most breastfed babies aren't able to gain that much weight" Yay! Hearing that kind of stuff sure makes a mom feel better!
I was a little late getting to this appointment. I was running a bit late anyway, since Jonah decided at the last minute that he was hungry. I didn't want to go to the doctor with a screaming kid, so I fed him quickly. Then, after I put him in his carseat and was about ready to walk out the door...... I couldn't find my keys! I looked everywhere. He was crying. I was a mess and starting to freak out. Finally, I looked in my purse AGAIN...and they were there. Sheew! I was only about 10 minutes late....and they didn't seem to mind at the doctor's office at all.
