Growing a BIG boy...........

Yep, that's right.  This momma's milk must be whole, not skim, b/c my baby is putting on the pounds and growing like a weed :)

At his two week check-up on Tuesday he was 10 lbs, 3 oz which is the 94th percentile and 22 1/4 inches long (87th percentile).  Yes, this is shorter than his birth length (per the office this is common as the measurements are hard to truly get at birth).  He easily regained his birth weight and actually gained much more than he needed too.  He is a good eater, so I'm not surprised!  Since he's so long, he really doesn't have that chubby baby appearance yet.  He just looks quite proportional to me!

He'll be 3 weeks on Sat and has been completely out of his newborn diapers and sleepers for the last week.  A few of his 0-3 month outfits are still a little big, but most fit perfectly.  As I mentioned before, he's just starting to lift his head, and we'll get an occasional glimpse of a smile (from gas at this point, but cute none the less!)

We're still pretty thrilled with our little Spence and feel really, really blessed!
