Ferris is a month old already!
At his two week checkup, he weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces, still down a bit from his birth weight. And he was still at 21 inches long. This week at his one month check up, he was 9 pounds 6 ounces and 22 inches long! After just two weeks! So, all of my worrying about “I have to limit his feeding to help with the spitting up, but is he getting enough?” is just silly. Clearly he’s getting enough.
This also reminded me I still needed to get a baby book. Because, the milestones! They’re happening already! In addition to growing so fast we can practically see it happening before our very eyes, he’s also starting to smile and coo, and he can track an object close to his face. (Which means he’s a genius, obviously.)
The past month has gone by so fast! And I was warned about this. They say it goes fast with your first, and even faster with your second. You blink and they’re going off to gradeschool. And why is it so much faster with the second? Because you’re too flipping busy to stop and savor the moments.
If you need me, I’ll be over there smelling the roses.
P.S. I weighed in at 138 at the doctor yesterday. BOOYAH.
