Bulking Up

Second Son was baptized yesterday and Second Daughter had her two year check-up today. Hopefully I'll have a chance to post on those events soon.

While we were at the doctor's office, we weighed Second Son, just for fun.

10 pounds, 14 ounces

So, to recap, on Friday, July 23rd, when Second Son was born, he weighed in at a hefty 10 pounds, 1 ounce.

On Tuesday, July 27th, when he was four days old, he weighted 9 pounds, 12 ounces.

Today, Tuesday, August 3rd, at eleven days old, he weighed 10 pounds, 14 ounces.

He's gained more than a pound in the past week.

I'd say he has this nursing thing down.


  1. Gift was the same....he regained his birth weight of 8.15 in 3 days after getting home, and was up two pounds by the end of May (2 weeks old). He currently is 2.5 months old and 15 pounds!!! WOW!! My friend who just had her 9.1 lb son is not allowed to lift or walk around with my baby - he's over her limit....and he's a newborn too! It's insane.

    Enjoy sharing that cream with Second Son :) Good job mama!

  2. Gift is huge!! Hopefully Second Son's growth rate will slow down a little soon. I'm feeling well enough to do things like laundry, but he wants to be held constantly still and I'm not ready to do squats in front of my washer and dryer with an extra 11 pounds in the carrier.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
