Jerry also did a good job for the doctor. He's such a laid back boy, I would have been shocked if he wasn't. His weight and height have tapered off a bit which is surprising with how much that kid eats! (Yesterday he ate HALF A CAN (value sized!) of formula before I got home from work!) Anyway, he is now 17lbs (10%), and 27 1/2" (10%). His head is 45.5cm (50%). The doctor was satisified with the answers to questions about his growth, which is all we really want from these types of visits. I can't believe our next visit for this boy will be his ONE YEAR exam! On a side note, he's started preferring bottles to nursing and rejects me every time I try except in the morning. I think he's just too tired at 6am to reject me! After I nurse I have to make him a bottle because it's not enough anymore. Breaks my heart a little bit, but I stopped pumping at work after Christmas break, so it's probably my own fault. I just keep telling him he can't completely reject me until he's a year. He's my last one, and my goal when I started nursing Gracie was to have all my babies nurse for a year. I hope I'm able to reach that goal. It will be hard not to be nursing when I've been doing it for the better part of four years! Babies just grow too fast.
