One Month Old!

Last Saturday Mason turned one month old! Today was his doctor appointment.  He weighs 10 lbs 1.5 oz (down from 10lbs 5 oz)  He's 23 inches long (he's grown an inch) and his head is 16 inches around (grown 2 inches!) He's in the 90th percentile for height and head size, and 50th for weight.  His doctor mentioned that he should be back to his birth weight so she gave a prescription for vitamins and he has to go back in two weeks.  When he was in the NICU they checked his hearing and he failed on his left ear so we have to make an appointment to get that double checked sometime soon.  Lately he's been sleeping for 6-7 hours at night which is awesome!  He drinks 3 ounces of breast milk every 3-4 hours. Overall he's a great little guy!

Marley hasn't been to the doctor in a long time, so she also got a check-up.  She's average for height and weight at 39 lbs and 39 3/4 inches tall.  She also had to get FOUR SHOTS!! She was crying as soon as I told her she had to get shots.  She said she never wants to go to the doctor again! Poor thing. She did great but screamed and cried until we left the office.  We stopped for ice cream on the way home because I felt bad for her.  She's still being a great helper and actually wanted to change a diaper the other day!

(In other news I only have 10lbs to lose until I am back down to my pre-pregnancy weight!)
