One & Two Week Stats

Gentry saw his pediatrician for the first time on Friday, June 15. When he was born he weighed 9 lbs. 7 ozs. and was 20 1/2 inches long. When we left the hospital on Wednesday, he weighed 9 lbs. 5 ozs. When we saw his pediatrician on Friday, he weighed 9 lbs. 11 ozs. (88th percentile) and was 21 inches long (80th percentile).  The pediatrician said he was just going to be a baby that gained weight quickly and stated that he was very proud of Gentry's increase.

When we returned a week later for Gentry's 2 week checkup, he weighed in at a whole 10 lbs. 2 ozs. (95th percentile) and was 21 1/2 inches long (90th percentile).  His head had grown from 14.5 inches the week before to 14 7/8.  Just growing, growing, growing I tell ya! ;)

He doesn't have to go back until he goes for his two month shots on August 13.  I know he's already close to eleven pounds by now.  He's so good.  He sleeps so good, he doesn't cry or whine a lot, and he's just a very laid back baby like Jubal was.  God has truly blessed me with two outstanding little fellas. :)

The only issues we've had so far is his little face broke out pretty badly with milk bumps.  I was told not to put anything with fragrance on his face so I didn't really know what to do.  His pedi told me to rub a little vaseline on his face and around his forehead at the scalp.  His face is looking so much better.  I can't complain about a little issue like that.  Thank God for healthy, happy babies! :)
