Emory is 1 month old today and I'm in shock that he's getting so big so fast! So he had his one month check-up and it went well. He's got a small umbilical hernia, which she said shouldn't be anything to worry about and he has a rash on his body but she said that looked like the normal newborn thing as well. I will keep an eye on it though because Bryson has extremely sensitive skin so I'm hoping it's not something they share. He peed on the doctor, which gave us a good laugh.

I forget all the exact numbers but he was 50% in his head circumfrance and 75% (22.5 inches) for length but he weighed in at 11 pounds 2 ounces (90%). He's gained over 3 pounds in a month! I just can't believe it. I've been waiting to try out the cloth diapers on him because I wanted to wait until he was clearly over 9 lbs but wow, he must have been over 9 lbs for over two weeks now, lol. Soooo...I need to do some laundry so we can get this started!

Overall it was a great appointment and he doesn't need to go back until 2 months. Yay!
