He's a Long, Tall Texan!



Okay, but not with the Texan part. When they measured Connor at the hospital, the number they gave us was 20 inches. People kept telling me they thought he looked long, and I thought he did, too. Turns out we were right. When the nurse measured him yesterday at our one week checkup, she got 22 inches. She measured twice and I watched very carefully. Now, he DID gain 8 oz in 4 days (he came in at an even 8 lbs yesterday - up 8 oz from when we left the hospital), but I'm pretty sure that doesn't translate into 2 inches of growth in the same amount of time!

CONGRATULATIONS!! What a beautiful baby boy. I'm so happy you're on this side of everything. Someday....

And I've started to take very little stock of the 'height measurement' they take at birth and well baby visits. Give them a good 2-3 inches of fudge room with each measurement....

So cute, glad he is growing and gaining weight also. I can't wait to see what my boy looks like too!
