2 Week Update

Today Uriah got to meet the pediatrician for the first time. Since birth, he has grown lots!

Weight: 10 lb 3 oz (birth 9 lb 8 oz)
Length: 22 1/2 inches (birth 22 inches)
Head Circumference: 15 inches (birth 14 1/4 inches)

She also checked out his whole body, especially his nose since he has been dripping milk out of his left nostril when we nurse side-lying on his left side. His nose looked fine though- it may be because I have so much milk. She's also concerned of a slight tongue tie, but it's not enough to worry about since he nurses effectively and is gaining weight rapidly. He's only got 5 ounces to go until he is a pound over his birthweight- a lot of babies are just barely back up to their birthweight at 2 weeks old!

While we were at the pediatrician's office, the girls got to go to a birthday party! They had lots of fun playing games and doing art projects. Now Dave is taking them both to a basketball game, so it's just me and Riah at home. And he's sound asleep! I guess tonight's a good night to curl up with a book. Good thing I stopped by the library to pick two new ones up today! I've been reading books from the juvenile and young adult sections lately. I got book three in the Gregor the Overlander series, and I picked up a book called The Goose Girl that my sister read and really enjoyed.

Favorite Colors

Apparently, being bombarded with pink and purple hasn't influenced my daughters' color preferences. Rose has recently announced that her favorite color is blue. And Lacy? For a long time, it was purple. Then she discovered that many of her friends love purple as well. To be different, she decided that her favorite colors are actually red, brown and black. And she specifically said that she likes those colors because nobody else does. She's a girl after her mother's heart, she is.

My sweet boy is one week old and we couldn't be happier in love with him!

Uriah actually weighed 9 lb 8 oz at birth. The midwife wasn't used to the scale they had at the birth center and told us the wrong weight. We are certain that 9 lb 8 oz is correct, though, because today he weighed in at 9 lb 9 oz. My milk is in, but he certainly hasn't gained that much by 5 days old!
