I can't believe the little guy is already 10 days old! We went in to the doctor's today for his newborn check up. He weighed in at 8lbs 4oz, so he is already back up to his birth weight and was 21 1/4 inches so he's stretched out a bit more! Both his weight, height and head circumpherence put him in the 50th percentile. The doctor thought he was looking great, he is a little bit jaundiced but not enough that the doctor was worried about him. He didn't have to have any shots since he had gotten his first shot in the hospital, so they won't have to see him in again until he is 2 months old. We did have to go over to the lab and do his final PKU though, which he didn't like one bit! But he is such a good baby (knock on wood) that he got over it pretty quickly. We also had to take Jayde in to be seen as well (she weighed in at 52lbs), since she had been complaining about her ear bugging her and we noticed some drainage from her right ear. So she is now on antibiotics and ear drops and he wants to see her back in 10 days to see how it is looking and decide if she needs to go and see the ENT here. She was really good too (especially considering we had to wait over an hour to see the doctor!) she is just so used to having her ears looked at that it didn't bug her at all for her to poke at her ear and get some of the fluid cleared out.
So anyways, things are going well here. Just trying to get everyone adjusted and get on some sort of routine! The kids all love baby CJ and love to "help" out! :) Calvin so far has been a really good baby. He hardly ever cries and even when he does he is able to be comforted very easily, so hopefully that will continue! So here are some more pictures of him, these were taken a few days ago. I just love the one of him and Jaxon together, Jaxon is just facinated by him and loves to touch him and look at him. And for the most part he is really gentle with him, I think he likes being a big brother! :) And the second to last picture I caught him smiling in his sleep!
Oh and we also want to wish Jenni a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! And we are looking forward to seeing you this weekend! :)
