Jack's 2 Week Checkup

Today was Jack's 2 week check up with the pediatrician. Nothing too exciting at this appointment. He's growing and healthy. I'm sure most of you are wondering how much he's grown in 13 days. If you remember, his birth weight was 7 lb 15 oz, and he was 20" long. Today he weighed in a 8 lb 15 oz, and 21" long. He is a little chunk!! Most of it is in his cheeks and his belly. Not sure how much they're supposed to gain after two weeks, but that seems like a lot! I guess to his defense, he got weighed with a wet diaper on.

After the appointment, we headed to the hospital to do Jack's 2nd newborn screening. My poor child had to get pricked in the foot again. He was a tough little guy, though. I think he's going to grow up tougher than his momma... and I think I'm pretty tough (except when it comes to needles). Here's a picture of his wounded little foot. Isn't it sad?!
