11 Pounds of Wholesome Goodness

11 Pounds of Wholesome Goodness!
The little bean sprout has been doing exactly that...sprouting! G-man had his 6 week visit to day with the pediatrician and he now weighs 11 pounds of wholesome goodness! We were guessing his weight before he got on the scale and the nurse and I didn't think he'd make 10 lbs, but we were blown away! What a porker! Well, he has actually grown 2 inches and is now 22 3/4 inches long so the doc says he is growing like crazy right now--growth spurt he said I can thank Ry Bread for that. He is now in the 50-75th percentile for weight and height. He was only in 25th for height 4 weeks ago. The average infant only gains 2 pounds between 2-6 week check and G-man gained 4 lbs. What a freakin' stud!! The little guy is doing great, only concern is he has a little jaundice hangin' around. We had to make a trip to the hospital for a bilirubin test today but the doc thinks it will slowly works its way out so no worries for now. This picture, although taken a few weeks ago, says it all!
