One Month Check Up!

Today we took Dominic for his one month check up. Once again, Lou & I bet on what we thought Dom weighed..(He was 8 lbs 1 oz two weeks ago)

Brooke: 8 lbs 10 oz
Lou: 8 lbs 12 oz

Dominic weighed in at 9 lbs 1.3 oz. That means he's gained two pounds in less than a month!! (He won't officially be a month old til Saturday) He also is 20 1/2 inches long--he grew an inch! And his head is one centimeter larger than at birth. Dr.Flask was VERY happy with how he is progressing--especially his weight!

I asked the doctor about his eye color and she confirmed that she'd bet his eyes will stay BLUE! (I always wanted dark hair and blue eyes! haha) Dr.Flask explained that usually when a baby is going to have darker eyes, they are born with grey eyes and Dom's look like little blueberries!

Our next appointment is January 12th--his TWO month check-up. <---where he'll be given shots! :o(
