I just took him to the doctor this morning, and he weighs 15 lbs 3 oz (55th percentile) and is 25.43 inches long (68th percentile). He's right about the same as Timmy was as a baby. And just like Timmy started to do around that time, he is turning into another little blondie. He's got cradle cap that I'm going to need to take care of, and once that's gone he'll have some shiny EVOO-infused blond locks. (Not so) fun fact: The pediatrician told me today that cradle cap is caused by yeast. Blech! I thought it was just dry scalp. We still can't really tell his eye color. Right now I'd say brown or hazel will be what they end up.
He loves to "talk" with us and since he has no words he says it with spit. "Joey's blowing happy bubbles!" his siblings say as he smiles at them and blows raspberries.
Something he likes to do that always catches my attention because it's a little strange, is he turns his hand backward. He does it while he's nursing and while he's on his belly. Here are a couple examples of what I'm talking about. When I mentioned it to my mom she said he reminded her of a little turtle. I could see that.
What else, for future reference..? He wears mostly 3-6, some 6-9, and is in a size 2 diaper. I am back to using only disposables after my cloth diapers became mysteriously smelly even after multiple washes. I appreciate now, more than ever, what a luxury disposables are.
