Ethan's three weeks old

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

I took Ethan for his three-week doctor's appointment yesterday. I was so surprised by the transformation in the three short weeks since his birth. Here is his progress:

His first doctors appointment was when he was four days old. He had lost a lot a weight. He went down to 6 lbs 12 oz. So in the two weeks he gained two pounds! Isn't that insane? He's also much taller...which the nurse says the birth height is often incorrect because babies squirm around so much it's hard to get an accurate measurement.

He's getting pretty chubby in the face. He's got the biggest cheeks ever; which makes them so stinkin' kissable.

Here are some photos from this weekend.

Isabella loves giving kisses to Ethan. For now, she enjoys taking care of him. She'll give him a pacifier to try to soothe him even though he doesn't like pacifiers...yet. She'll cover him with a blanket...literally cover him entirely with the blanket head and all. It's all very sweet.

Since our kitchen is still not complete we went our for breakfast at our local favorite, Cafe 101. We always see an actor or two there. Several weeks ago we saw Lisa Edelstein who plays Dr. Cuddy on House - one of my new favorite shows. This time we saw two actors, but I don't know there names and can't recall what show they are from.

Isabella became fascinated with the wall at the cafe. You can see she had a bit too much juice.

Later we took Isabella to a park near our house. It was fun. We met several other toddlers and their parents at the playground. I always thought Isabella was pretty tall. She's been in the 80-90th percentile for height most of her life. At the park there were four two-year olds that were much taller than Isabella they all claim to be in the 100th percentile. Crazy.
