chunkopotamus...

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009

So the day before yesterday we visited the doctor to see just how far we've come.

Little Man was born 7lbs 12oz. Dropped to 6lbs 15oz at two weeks. Didn't start gaining back until 3 weeks. Had us all worried to bits.

And he was really the tiniest, skinniest baby I'd ever seen. People wondered if he was preemie.

Hmmmmm... Not anymore!

This particular chunkopotamus (as christened by Auntie Chacho) now weighs in at 10 pounds, 6.5 ounces.

He also grew another 1.25 inches in length, and a full inch in head circumference - catapulting him from the 19th percentile in weight to the 59th.

As the other lady in the newborn waiting room said, "He's giNORmous!" I guess in comparison to her 3-week old, he was.

Just wait a couple more weeks, lady. It's amazing what 14 days can bring!!
