Doctor's appointment

This morning was another cold one so we bundled Gage up in this adorable brown fleece one-piece with the hood with bear ears. So soft, so cuddly and Gage looked so adorable in it. I made a mental note as we were putting him in the car seat to take pictures of him when we got home.

At the doctor's office they showed us back to a small room to complete the necessary paperwork. After a few minutes, we heard Gage poop. Mat unzipped the too-cute-for-words outfit and found the diaper hadn't contained his poop, so we had to change him into the spare outfit we'd thrown in the diaper bag. So, no pictures today!

After we changed him, I nursed him then they were ready to show us to an exam room. The first thing we did was strip him down to his diaper for a weight check. Gage was 6 lbs 11 oz at birth and 6 lbs 8 oz when we left the hospital. Today my boy weighed 7 pounds! Such a good boy.

The rest of the appointment was uneventful. His circumcision is healing well and so his umbilical cord. We go back in two weeks for another well visit and weight check. No shots at this appointment or the next.
