Our Little Boy is Growing

We went to meet with the lactation consultant this morning to see how Rex was doing with eating... He's a little piggy. She weighed him before I feed him and he was 5 lbs 1.5oz ( He was just 4 lbs 11oz on Monday)! That is about an ounce a day. He is for sure getting enough to eat and she said if continues to eat like he is he is going to be a chubby little thing. So much for the thought he might get more wear out of his clothes since he is so little.

Those little ones seem to grow faster in order to "catch up." Austin gained an ounce a day for a long time. At around a year old he slowed way down. He gained about 18 pounds the first year and only about 6 pounds the second year. At 2 years old, he is about 25 pounds. However, all kids are different. Austin has a friend the same age as him who is well over 30 pound and another friend who is barely 20 pounds. I'm glad Rex is getting a good start. I'm sure you've heard it a hundred times, but enjoy him while he is little. They grow so fast!
