Holy growth-spurt Batman!! Even though technically this is marked as his 1 month check, Arthur is 5 weeks. To give some perspective, at his 1 week appointment, he had lost almost a pound from his birth weight and was at 8lb 6oz. At his 2 week appointment, he had gained 8oz in 5 days, but still wasn't at his birth weight. Today, at his 5 week appointment, he was 11lbs 2oz!!
The doctor asked if I was still exclusively breastfeeding or if I had started supplementing, I told her, I'm still exclusively bf-ing. She seemed surprised. He also grew a half an inch since his 2 week appointment and he's 21.5". And, of course he wouldn't be my son if he didn't pee while he was on the scale
In other news, I also had my 5 wk post-partum appointment, and HUZZAH everything looks good! I'm 4lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight, and got the green light to go ahead and exercise. They don't want to see me again until it's time for my annual at Halloween!
Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy
