Six Week Check Up

The Bean had is six week check up (last appointment with the midwives -sob!) on Friday. They were really happy with how well he's doing. They checked his heart rate, breathing, colour, size, etc. They were in agreement with us that he is perfect!

He weighed in at a whopping 8lbs. 8oz. That's 3lbs. over his birth weight and puts him in about the 6th percentile.

He measured almost 22in., which is about the 23rd percentile.

(3rd percentile for weight vs. length.)

His head circumference was about 15in., which is around the 22nd percentile.

So, he's still a smaller (and skinnier) than average baby, but doing very well!
