Noah's 6 week check up

He is growing so quickly! He lost a bit of weight after he was born, just like all babies. His first trip to the pediatrician was the Monday after he was born. Since then he has gained exactly 4 lbs! He's grown 2 and 1/4 inches. People do double takes when I tell them he is only 7 weeks old, they all think he's at least 3 months old. He also has great head control and has since he was two weeks old, so that adds to them thinking he's older. I wonder how this will play out when he's over 6 months old. If he will still be this much bigger and not be crawling because of his arm. Hmmm....... Oh well, I think he's perfect!

Holy cow! That's a lot of growin'! What a big boy! I think that breastfed babies tend to gain a lot of weight the first 6 months then it tapers off the second half of the first year.
