Charlie Update – 2 weeks

Charlie is two weeks old today, and we went to the pediatrician this morning. Our 8:50 appointment meant that I had to get up at 6:45 in order to get myself ready before it was time to feed Charlie and get him dressed. It was worth it, though, because he was a model patient at the doctor’s office (well…almost…more on that in a minute). He’s definitely a growing boy – he’s gone from 7 lbs 1 oz when he was born (he had dropped to 6 lbs 11 oz when we took him home from the hospital) to a whopping 8 lbs 5 oz. The doctor was very impressed with out little chub, and it made my question about whether he was getting enough to eat a little moot. He’s also grown an inch, but that could be some measuring differences. I said he was a model patient, but I didn’t mention our one mishap – Charlie had a full diaper so Travis was changing it while I talked with the pediatrician when I heard “Uh oh”. We looked over and Charlie had peepeed EVERYWHERE – all over the examining table and ruined the diaper that Travis was trying to put on him. Good thing I’ve been packing everything in the diaper bag in triplicate!

Here are some pics from the doctor’s office:

We have also started trying to do a little tummy time, but Charlie’s version of tummy time isn’t quite as active as I imagine it will eventually be. He basically just collapses like a limp noodle.
