Samuel had his 2-week check up today. His doctor was super pleased at how much weight he had gained, and Mommy was super relieved! Samuel had
lost 10% of his birth weight by the day we were discharged from the hospital, taking him from 8 lbs 4 oz down to 7 lbs 7oz, which was a little bit of a concern. He got a little dehydrated as well once we were home. We were told that this might be due to the fact that he was born "tongue-tied" which was making feeding difficult.
A little snip-snip of the tongue at the doctor's office and here we are, two weeks later, and Samuel has more than gained his birth weight back - he's now 8 lbs 11 oz! His head is almost 1 inch larger in diameter and he's grown 1 inch for a grand total of 21 inches! What a big boy!
