2 Week Well Baby Check Up

Today my Dino Piggy Baby is  2 Weeks old! Dang how time flies when you are sleep deprived!! We got to go back and see our Fav Doctor ever. He is a pediatrician in Cool Springs named Dr. Huss who I HIGHLY recommend. He has the best bed side manner, and seems to genuinely enjoy his job. He is also cute and witty so we give him an A++ and thank CB for recommending him to us!

He said my boy was doing just great and he continually laughs about how big he is! He has gained 1lb 3 oz in a weeks time!
His new stats are:
Weight 10lbs 10 ounces ( 94.7 percentile)
Height  21.5 inches (80th percentile)
Head 14.76 inches ( 60th percentile)

He said Fenn would keep his jaundice tan for a little while longer and that was nothing to worry about and he told me to stock pile my milk since it was plentiful and ya'll I am making some milk WHEW. ( anywhere from 8 - 10 ounces per pumping).
And Like a sweet dino piggy baby, he started sleeping for much longer periods of time yesterday. See below for his sleep schedule.

Mostly 2 hours and some 3 hour sleeps! Hooray! Much better than 1 hour ones!
Turns out, ( for those of you who have not read a novel about boobies and their workings) there is this stuff called "foremilk" and "hindmilk"  or as I like to say "2%" and " Whole milk" in order to get my piggy the whole ( hindmilk) I am supposed to massage the ladies when he eats or when I pump. Had no idea to do that until yesterday and that has made a lot of difference pretty quickly. I imagine had I known this last week he would have gained alot more than one pound! lol

And here is my Angel dreaming of Boobies:

We've been going to Harpeth Pediatrics for 10+ yrs. We see Dr. Collins (the other dude doctor) there. My oldest son, who turned 18 this year is moving on to a regular internist. He was bummed Dr. Collins wouldn't be his doc anymore.
