|I adore him.|
|We kind of matched, right?|
|“Yo mom, what’s with all of these layers?!”|
|Smirking in his chair (aka taking a poop- hey at least he did it BEFORE the appointment).|
“Nice to see you again, Cooper!” she said. “Look how much you’ve grown!”
She took his head measurements and temperature. Cooper was EXTREMELY dramatic about the entire process- he definitely gets that from me. He started screaming the moment she took his temperature under his armpit. Obviously the temperature taking didn’t hurt him ONE bit, but I think he didn’t like the idea of having someone hold down his arm. He likes to wiggle and move around at his own will. How dare someone hold down his arm.
Once she finished taking his temperature, Coop stopped crying instantly. He just looked at her as if he was saying, “Alright lady – I think you’re done now.”
Both of us were cracking up!
“Oh Cooper, you’re making me laugh today,” she said.
Then it was time to weigh him!
I stripped Cooper down to a fresh diaper – can’t let an extra pee or poo add to the scales!
|Poor baby had gas today – look at that belly!|
Last time, Cooper was 8 lbs and 5 ozs.
He was born 7 lbs even and dropped to 6 lbs and 3 ozs when we wasn’t eating well / had jaundice issues.
So I was guessing he’d weigh about 9 lbs nad 6 ozs. But lil Coop exceeded my expectations!
Weight: 10 lbs and 5 ozs / 57 percentile (looks like our feeding plan is working out JUST fine!)
Height: 23 and 3/4 inches / 99 percentile (looks like we have a future basketball player on our hands)
Head: 37 1/4 cm / 44 percentile (looks like that cone head is going down after all)
|One hour vs. one month.|
