Cael is growing!
Little Cael had another Dr. appointment this afternoon and we found out that we are not doing a bad job as his parents!! He is 12 days old and has gained 1 whole pound since birth!! Yahoo!! 12 days ago he weighed in at 5 lbs. 14 oz. and today he weighed 6 lbs. 14 oz. Yay - we know how to feed him properly! He's also grown half an inch - an inch if you go by what they said last week at his appointment. When he was born they said he was 19.5" long, last Monday they said 19" (he didn't shrink!) and today he was 20" long. So he has either grown half an inch in 12 days OR he shrunk half an inch and then grew a full inch - you pick which you want to believe. His little head has also grown half an inch! Ouch! His head was 13.5" and today it was 14". Our little man can grow!!! He's really doing great and doesn't have to go back for 2 weeks! It's nice to know we're doing a good job as parents!
