Momma, Daddy and Eli all went to Eli's one month check up this morning with Dr. Powers. He got measured and weighed and generally poked and prodded! The doctor said he was growing great and everything looked good. Eli did a pretty good job at the doctor's even though he was pretty sleepy and would've preferred a nap to all the poking and measuring. His next visit is the week before the wedding... that Monday I think. He will be getting 3 shots that day... hopefully he will recover long before the wedding and be his normal delightful self in time for the festivities that weekend!
Vital Stats - 1 Month:
Weight - 8 pounds 8.5 ounces (18th percentile) ( I will admit that his diaper was pretty full when they weighed him so this may be slightly exaggerated :) )
Length - 21 1/2 inches (47%th percentile)
Snoozer! This is what he has been doing ALL day today! You know that doesn't bode well for my night! :)
Here is what 8.8 lbs and 21.5 inches looks like all stretched out on the floor!
