2 Week Check-Up

Andrew is 12 days old today, and we went for his 2-week check-up with our midwife (Note: In Texas, CPMs are trained & licensed to provide newborn care to both mom & baby through 6 weeks). The highlight (not!) of the visit was his second heel stick for the metabolic disorders screening. At least Andrew is a pretty good bleeder. He also weighs 9 lbs. 8 oz. Way to go, champ! I forgot to weigh myself, not that I am at all concerned about my weight at this point, but I thought it might be a bit of a boost to see how many pounds I dropped without even trying, especially since I can fit into only one pair of pants in which I am willing to appear in public.

I'll try to get some new photos of the boy up soon.
