We were the typical parents of newborns: even though we started putting Levi in his winter outfit and packing him into the car seat 20 minutes before we needed to leave the house, we still arrived late for our appointment! Fortunately Dr. Pollard, at Evergreen Children's Clinic in Puyallup, was running a bit behind.
Our height and weight check yesterday revealed that Levi is 22 inches and down to 7 pounds, 7 ounces. (He has lost a whole pound since Monday night.) We asked the doctor about Levi's excessive gas, and left satisfied that the problem would taper off as our feeding sessions become more productive.
After the appointment was over, it only took the two of us 15 minutes to get Levi redressed and strapped into the car seat. Quite the speed demons, aren't we?
