I took Tenzin to his 2 week doctor's appointment today. He has gained weight (to 10.5 lbs) and shrunk inches long (to 21.5) ha! He is quite the little porker, but they aren't concerned with his weight gain or eating habits at all...that was good to know. They are also not concerned with his snarfles and congestion or his little patches of rashy skin. All normal baby things says Dr. Pete. We also had his circumcised today and he was such a trooper. Fact number 1 I learned I have never heard him REALLY cry until today...all that other business has just been fussing. He was really good with the whole procedure and didn't even flinch with the poking and bleeding of his foot or the initial shots to his private areas. I wish he had been more numb for some of the cutting and removing parts, cuz he was not a happy boy, but it all went smoothly and he hasn't seemed to be that miserable since. He has slept more than usual, but he hasn't been crying or acting in pain, so that makes me feel better. He has officially out grown his Newborn clothing...so we will start moving on to 0-3 month outfits. They may be a little baggy and silly for a little bit, but I have no fear he will grow into them post haste.
The nurses at the doctor's office, just like the nurses as the hospital, kept commenting on how calm and comfortable I am, for a new mom. I am not sure how to take this comment. Is it an insult? Is it a compliment? Initial impression is compliment, but not sure. How do "most" new moms behave? Are they hyper psychos? How is it going to help T who is getting poked and prodded and then cut if I am all panicy? He can sense that and it can't be good for his nerves... So i will chose to remain calm, but geez, thats a lame thing to keep getting told.
Today's pictures are: Mom put him in his carseat all by herself for the first time today, Yippee!! T laying peacefully on the doctor's slab waiting the cutting, having just found out he is 10.5 pounds now! and finally, him resting with a few tears in his eyes after the procedure.
