Dr King

We forgot to tell you about the first dr's appt on friday. Bruce is very healthy by all acounts. He peed on the exam table before being weighed. ha ha, that was funny. He weighed in at 7lbs and the dr was pleased. He said babies should be back to birth weight by 14 days and we were at day 11, so he expects we're easily on track (we need to get to 7 lbs 1.5 oz). Not very surprising since the boy eats like nobody's business. On the other hand It was comforting to know that all those nursing times he was really getting food, since it hurt like crazy and most of the time we felt like we were on the nursing short bus. We seem to have gotten the hang of it now. Speaking of nursing, the dr thought it was funny that Bruce was trying to nurse thru luke's shirt when he came in to meet us. hee hee, he was hungry! Anyway, the dr remeasured him, and said Bruce is 20.5 inches- so he is nice and tall. The dr said often babies aren't measured correctly at the hospital, where they told us he was 18.5 inches. We really liked the pediatrician (who came recommended by friends at church). By the time we were done, Bruce thought he was starving, so we got to practice public feeding in the waiting area- for 30 MINUTES. Then we had a little outing in the sling to the Ardmore farmers market for lunch. When we got home all 3 of us passed out for long naps. A good day was had.
