Heath update!

Heath is sleeping so I have a moment to update everyone about how he is doing. We've been to see his Doctor twice now. The first time was the day after we got home from the hospital and the second time was yesterday. During his first Dr. visit they said he was 19.5 inches long and weighed 6lbs 5oz, the same weight he was at when discharged from the hospital. Yesterday they said he is 20.5 inches long and weighs 6lbs 13.25oz. I don't know how a little baby can grow 1 inch in just a week, I think their measurement method is not too accurate with that. But he did gain a 1/2 pound in a week. That puts him in the 72 percentile for height and 10 percentile for weight.  When we go back next Friday I think he'll be over 7lbs! I love my little little baby and I know I'm going to miss this stage with all his wrinkly skin and string bean legs. Since I can't post without a picture here is Heath about to go on his first stroller ride. We've been able to take him out for a few walks and I'm so glad he likes riding in the stroller. I'm really looking forward to lots of walks with him this summer.
