Last weight check!

Shepherd and I went to his doctor this morning. He did great! He weighs 8 pounds and 13 ounces. He is in the 10th percentile for weight. Last time I think he was in the 4th. So we are doing good. Doctor told us to keep it up. Our next appointment is April 12th. It'll be for his 2 month well check. It's a couple weeks late because Shep and I will be in Florida for 2 weeks. Marvin is coming to visit on Easter weekend and Shep and I will be there the week before and after Easter. My family can't wait for a good long visit with Shepherd... oh and me. =)

Weight check part 3

At Shep's last doctor visit on Thursday he was 7 pounds 6 ounces. The nurse wants him to gain more weight, but we made good progress. He needs to gain one ounce a day. We have to go back in 2 weeks for another check. She said he is perfect, just needs some more meat on his bones. Now we have to give him 2 ounces of formula after every breastfeeding (he breastfeeds for an hour at a time). My milk is plentiful, he's just super hungry... he's trying to catch up.
My Mom and Dad were here this weekend. They came for Shepherd's blessing. My Mom was so sad to leave. She was sobbing. She kept trying to get me to go home with them until Easter. I would miss Marvin too much. I told her we would find a time when Shep and I could come down for a week and have a nice long visit.
I have lots of pictures to post. I'll put them up later. I need to rest while Shep does.
