Two Week Checkup

We took Jacob for his 2 week check-up today. He finally got to see his actual pediatrian for the first time. The man is amazing. I am so happy we chose him to be our doctor.

We talked about his sleeping habits, eating habits, etc. Everything is looking and sounding good for him. He has started to spit up a lot but Dr. Wynalda said as long as he is gaining weight he is not concerned about it -- babies will spit up in varying amounts until they are about a year old. We also told him about his eye goop {we had called about that last week because the goop was greenish/yellow and I was afraid he had an eye infection -- turned out to just be blocked tear ducts} This is already starting to clear up though so that is good. Again this is normal until about a year old.

He weighed in at 8 lbs this appointment, which is well over his birth weight. His height was just about 20 inches {19 7/8 inches} so my little man is growing! His head circumference was 35.5cm or 14 inches. They didn't write down what the percentiles were this appointment so I don't know where he falls for that.

He goes back at 2 months. The appointment is scheduled for February 11th currently. He will get shots at that appointment.
