Weight Check

Sam weighed in today at the doctor’s office.  I stripped him down to get an accurate weight.  He weighed 19 lbs, 3 oz.  That is a weight gain of 11 oz, or about two-thirds of a pound, in a month.  Since he only gained one pound in the three months before that is awesome! The doctor thinks he would have probably gained more if he had not had an ear infection.  The ear infection caused him pain while he was eating.  He has been waking up every night in the middle of the night (twice last night) for almost two weeks wanting to eat so maybe he is going through a growth spurt.  I have pretty much just let him eat when ever he wants and we haven’t really been on any kind of schedule.  We will be back at 11 months and will weigh him again.  And then at 12 months we will take another look and see where we stand.  Good gaining buddy!!
