Poor Carson had a doctor's appointment on Monday. He was 5 weeks old that day. Because our insurance wasn't effective until his due date, and there were no doctors at the hospital because it was Christmas Eve so everyone was on call, our poor little fella wasn't circumsized until a couple of days ago. While at the office, they did the usual weigh, measure, and check the heart routine. I knew they probably would so I had all my family make guesses as to what Carson would weigh ... some of the predictions were 10.4, 10.10, 10.2, 11.4 and more. The reason I had everyone guess was because my little baby can EAT. He has taken 10 ounces down a couple of different feedings, and I would say that on average he eats about 6 ounces (6 or 7 times a day). Well, I plopped the naked, handsome boy on the scale and the numbers flashed 11.2!! What a chunker! I was so proud. Here are the progressive numbers:

December 24th (his birthday - 3 weeks and 1 day early):
Length - BARELY under 21 inches
Weight - 7 pounds 13 ounces

Leaving the hospital he weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces

Two weeks old:
Length - 21 inches
Weight - 8 pounds 3 ounces

Five weeks old:
Length - 23 inches
Weight - 11 pounds 2 ounces

FYI the doctor thinks he will be about 6'4''

3 Weeks

I know I am one week behind seeing as Carson is four weeks old today and not three weeks. However, I figured I would throw these pictures in for your viewing pleasure anyway...

This is Aunt Tine (Christine) and Carson
I had to put this one in because it is such a Carson face; he does this ALL the time. He loves to flare his nostrils, purse his lips, and raise his eyebrows

Thank you mom, for letting me steal this picture!
