Auggie's 2 Week Appt.

I forgot to post this last week - I've just been so busy with Auggie! At his first check up a week earlier he weighed 8lbs. 6oz. which was just 5oz. under his birth weight. When I took him for his 2 week, he was still at 21" but weighed 9lbs. 8oz!!! Clearly, this kid likes to eat :) Dr. says everything looks great and described him as "robust" :) He seems to be strong and has good reflexes and no longer has jaundic. I can't believe how fast time is going already!

He is gaining good weight, are you breast feeding?

Sounds like he is on the same weight gain pattern as my Ella bird.....up up up! I just hope they slow down. Its like they were born with a head start on those smaller babies ;) (Ella was 8 lbs 7 oz) Glad the jaundice is gone & he is doing well....now tell him to calm down. Hes got plenty of growing time!

I know what you mean by time going fast. Aubrianna will be 1 month tomorrow! Glad Auggie is doing so well and is over the jaundice!

I am breast feeding. He likes to eat almost every hour! No wonder he's gaining weight so quickly :)

Wow every hour! That's a hungry little man. RJ is still every two to three hours.
