We took Carter in for his 2 week appointment last week and he weighed in at 6 lbs 6 Oz and at 20 inches long. We asked the nurse, you mean he grew 2 inches in two weeks, she said no, that the hospital doesn't usually get the best of measurements right after they are born. So he was probably closer to 20 inches instead of the 18 they measured at birth. They were happy with his progress since he is back over his birth weight but still pretty tiny! He is slowly looking like he is putting meat on his bones. It is hard to tell when you see him all day every day though. Below are a few of the pictures we have taken over the past couple of weeks.
After bath time...if you think he is asleep he is not, I just put in his bink and when he is really upset and crying this is what he looks like once that bink is in place.
McKay has discovered that he'll latch onto his nose if he is really hungry.
I guess he is still pretty skinny by the looks of this picture. You can see Grif at the top of this picture smelling him. The dogs still like to smell him a couple of times a day, or whenever someone comes over and holds him.
McKays Fire Captain and his wife came down last week on their Harley's, they thought Carter was so small he could fit in one of their saddle bags so we tried it out and he fit perfect.
He seemed pretty content once inside too. No worries they didn't drive anywhere with him in there. This is his Captain's wife's Harley, it was pretty nice. It actually made me think twice about not wanting McKay to have one. It would be fun to have, it may even be fun to learn to ride one myself!! Maybe when I am a little older....oh and we have the money to get some sort of bike.
Well things really are going well! I just had my first 2 days without McKay or my parents around, he went to work this week. It went really well actually. By the second day it was routine just like before I had a kid. Now I have the company of Carter, Griffin and Miles while McKay is away. It isn't so bad. :)
