growing by leaps and bounds

I am so glad that I switched Jo Jo’s pediatrician. The new office gave us tons of attention, and really gave the impression that they were focused on Jo Jo and I. (Ok ok so I work for the same institution, but I am proud of it! My healthcare system is truly the best!) The best part was that they immediately got ahold of Jo Jo’s hospital records from birth. I finally know how much she weighed and her gestational age.

Jo Jo was in the 16th percentile for weight for newborn girls when she was born. When I took her to be weighed at exactly 6 weeks, she was in the 20th percentile for height and weight. Today, four weeks later, she is in the 40th percentile for height and weight. Her head has also grown from the 50th percentile the 85th! I guess she’s just getting really smart really fast…

After her two month immunizations the poor baby is not feeling well tonight and is in bed a whole hour before the usual time. I have a feeling it might be a rough night.
