    Saturday Weigh-In

    September 14, 2008 by Brandy Vencel

    I promise not to detail Baby O.’s growth past about eight pounds. Why eight? Well, that is approximately what I expected him to weigh when he was born. He measured the largest of any of the children so far up until about seven months along. If he had been the largest, he would have been over 7.5 pounds, which is what our biggest baby weighed.

    Basically, I’ve been expecting him to reach what I thought would be his birth weight before he is four weeks old. If he continues at this rate, that is exactly what will happen.

    So the important part is that he weighed in at 7 pounds 0.5 ounces! He also began outgrowing his preemie sleepers, so last night I washed a bunch in newborn size in preparation for the switch. {It’s funny how, at my little family shower, newborn size looked so tiny, and now it looks so big!}

    Developmentally, he is right on target. He is beginning to have a bit more awake time {how I wish the bulk of it wasn’t at 3am}. But the best part is that he smiled at me on Friday!
