First of all, his stats were through the roof. She was totally shocked. Since birth he's doubled his weight (which she says doesn't normally happen till about 6 mo.) putting him in the 95% at 15 lbs. even. He's grown 3 1/2 inches and is now in the 80% at 24 in. long. His head circumference concerned her a little. I didn't write down what it was at birth, but it is now 16 in. (62%). Apparently it grew faster than it should. She wasn't too worried since his soft spot was not bulging from fluid and because I told her large heads are common in Matt's family. Plus his body's grown so much he'd look mighty funny with a tiny head on a huge body! I'm not concerned.
His stats are very similar to Dean's 2 month. He's 2 lbs heavier and 1/2 an inch shorter than Dean was. Pretty sure their heads were the same. Dean was at the top of the charts till 6 months and then he started thinning out and his growth slowed way down. It'll be interesting to see if Walt does the same.
A few anomalies: He has a herniated belly button, but she said they don't really worry about that till about 4 years since it often corrects itself. His urological issue has been resolved, but there is possibly some fluid there that shouldn't be. We just have to watch out and make sure he doesn't get a hernia down in his groin area. He favors one side of his head so we have to stretch his neck and try and get him on his tummy more to make sure he doesn't get a flat spot that would require a helmet. "Other than that he is perfect." (My doc.'s favorite phrase.)
He got his shots and has been a little fussier than normal, poor guy.
He's the perfect baby for me right now. He's pretty darned content the majority of the day if he has a full belly and enough sleep. I think Heavenly Father knew I needed a little break if I was going to have more kids! He's been cooing and occasionally gives us a little smile. His longest sleep stretch has been about 6 or 7 hours. Last night he slept from 7-midnight and then 12-4:45. That was pretty nice. He then slept until about 6:15, but I just pulled him in bed with me and got him to go back to sleep until 7:45. Not that I got to sleep in that late since Dean was up around 7. Anyway, I think he's just darling.
