Here are his two week stats
Height: 20'' 20%
Weight: 6lbs 3oz 2%
Head Size: 14'/4'' 27%
He can: Focus on faces, Lift head, Has a good startle reflex, Responds to sounds, Turns head to side
So obviously he is a little guy (although he is really tall). Dr. McBride, however, is not worried at all. He is actually on a line in the growth chart so the doctor says that he does not care which line he is on as long as he is following the line. In conclusion... so far so good with the health of our son.
His umbilical cord finally fell all the way out so we got to give him a full on bath for the first time (not just a sponge bath). He was mad that we gave him a bath but he actually really liked it
|This is him crying because I had just put him in|
|This is when he realized he actually didn't hate it as much as he had originally though|
|All dried and ready to get dressed (doesn't he sort of look like a plastic baby in this picture)|
It is really hard for me to remember that he is only 3 weeks old. He seems so big already and the hospital seems like it was ages ago. He is so incredibly smart and alert. He has been doing this new thing in which he just wants to be awake. Sometimes he is content to be sitting on his swing, but sometimes he wants us to play and talk with him. We have discovered that he really likes being sung to. His favorites are "once there was a snowman" and "Jesus wants me for a sunbeam (although I don't know the lyrics in English for this one so he actually likes "Cristo me manda que brille"). On top of that, he has discovered mommy's hair (this is not such a fun one for me). It is so crazy to us how much he has developed in such a little amount of time.
