Two Weeks

Jerry had his two week checkup today, and we are so proud of our little man! At is first appointment, he weighted in at 8 pounds, 3.5 ounces-which impressed the doc as his weight leaving the hospital was 8 lbs 1 ounce. Today he was at a full NINE POUNDS! This boy loves to eat! He is 21 1/4" long and his head is 37 1/2 cm around. I had so many questions for the doc that I forgot to get percentiles (plus, I had both girls with me, vying for my attention). We officially got a referral to a specialist for his hearing, but was told that it's no hurry to get him in. Any concerns about his circumcision were relieved, and I asked about his bellybutton too. The newborn diapers were not doing their job, so I switched to size one when he was just a few days old, and they are so much taller than the N size that they rubbed on his cord. The cord fell off at day 11, but I wasn't sure it was completely ready to fall off, or if the diaper made it come off prematurely. I was afraid that his belly button would remain as it is-half innie and half outie (it's really a bit weird looking at this point.) She didn't seem to think that it will stay that way, but we'll have to wait and see. Our next appointment will be at his two-month mark and I'm having trouble with the fact that I'll probably have to schedule it around work, as I told our HR person I don't plan on taking time off this fall. The summer seems to be going by much too quickly, though, and I'm afraid I may regret that decision.
