WHOA! 1 month!

Lewis is 1 month old! And he is a bruiser!

We just got home from his 1 month appointment, and he is 10 lbs 11.5 oz. That is a whole pound heavier than at my lactation appointment on Monday.

I REPEAT.

Lewis has gained 1 pound in 3 days!

This growth spurt is no joke. Lewis means business. And this puts him in the 75th percentile for weight! He is 22.5 inches long, which makes him in the 90th percentile for length. So he’s a long, skinny guy just like his daddy!

As for me, I’m completely blown away by Lewis. The days feel so long and slow, but the weeks somehow fly by. I blinked and the first month is over. 

I’m so proud of my baby boy, and seeing his progress makes the past few days of insatiable eating totally worth it. I’m happy to put up with being a milk bag if he is going to grow and thrive like this!

Now that it is after midnight, I have an official count for how many meals Mr. Lewis had yesterday.

Normally he eats 8 times a day. Yesterday he ate 13 times, including 8 supplemental bottles.

Nice to know I wasn’t actually imagining it. 🙂 it’ll be fun to see what he weighs at his ONE MONTH (!!!) appointment.
