Yesterday we saw Dr. Wonderful (I LOVE this man) for Yogi’s first pediatrician appointment and he is looking great. Here’s the rundown:
At 12 days old, the Yogi is
- 6 lbs, 5 ozs (5th percentile)
- 20 inches long (40th percentile)
- 13 inch head circumference (3rd percentile)
I officially have a tiny baby. This is hugely entertaining to me as I come from a very tall family. At 5’8″, I am a runt. I am fairly certain that no one in my family has ever been anywhere near the 5th percentile. My wife is pretty tiny herself, so I guess it’s time for me to get used to being the giant in the family.
He is up 3 oz (thanks T) from his birth weight and in spite of some over-attachment to the nipple shield, he’s a good eater. Soon I hope to post more about the birth and our transition home. Maybe after a nap…..
