Dylan is gaining like a champ!

Okay, so my boy was born at 7lbs 11oz on December 21st, fourteen days ago. At six days old we had a pediatrician appointment and he weighed 7lbs 15oz. The doctor was happy because most babies lose weight the first week they’re alive but he actually gained. Today we had a second appointment and Dylan weighed 9lbs 5oz!! The doctor was surprised and said, “you must be producing darn good milkshakes when he breast feeds!”  Jeremy and I were so happy to hear that he’s growing so nicely.  Today he measured 21 inches in height which puts him in the 64 percentile and his weight ( 9lbs 5oz ) puts him in the 68 percentile. The funny thing is that he still is a lean looking baby, his body doesn’t have that chub look yet, only his cheeks. All I know is I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing so my boy can keep growing like he’s growing!
