One Month Check-up

It is so hard to believe my sweet boy is already one month old. It's true. He's a big boy, long and fat. The doctor says he's perfect, I must agree. He's 50% height, 55%  weight and either 30 or 33% head circumference. He weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and 20 inches at birth. At 5 days old his weight had dropped to 6 lbs 8 oz and today.....10 lbs 3oz, 21 3/8 inches long! He gained more weight than both girls did by one month. He definitely has reflux,he has all the signs of it. She said she isn't concerned about it though because he's had plenty of weight gain. I am to give him a dropper of Maalox before I feed him to help with the burn of it.  He had to get his Hepatitis B shot which got him completely hysterical, then another pku test which added insult to injury. He screamed for a good 35 minutes after the initial prick.  I felt horrible for him. He got all red faced and sweaty, poor sweet little guy.
