Henry had his one month pediatrician appointment today. He'll be six weeks old on Thursday, but this was the earliest appointment I could get. Anyhow, he did very well. Doesn't he look pleased? Well, that's about as pleased as Henry ever looks.
Here are his stats:
Weight: 9 pounds, 8 ounces. That's in the 25th percentile. (He was 6'14" at birth.) Strangely enough, I was 9'14" at birth, so I was larger as a newborn than Henry is at almost six weeks old. Crazy.
I'm not surprised that Henry gained so much weight. He has been chowing down regularly.
Length: 22 inches. (50th percentile) Henry was 19" at birth. That means he's pretty tall for his weight.
Head Circumference: 36.9 cm (15th percentile). I can't remember his numbers from birth, but his percentile hasn't changed.
Henry thought that he'd be getting his first shots today. . .
But then the doctor said they would wait until his two-month well visit for those.
