Millie, 1st Football Game, Big Sister

Millie was glad I put Henry down low enough so that she could finally check him out!

Two Weeks and one day old!

I took Henry to the Dr. yesterday (my birthday) for his two week check-up. His stats are:
Weight: 8 lbs. 14.5 oz. 50-75 %
Height: 21 1/4 95 %
Head Circumference: 37 cm. 50-75 %

I think it is funny that the height is 95 %. Abigail was the same way. They had better enjoy being tall now because they probablly didn't get any tall genes from me.

Henry started off really good last week just eating and sleeping. He got up to eating 3-4 ounces and sleeping 3-4 hours sometimes more at night when I don't wake him up, however recently he has started being really fussy and stopped eating as much. He just seems in pain when he was eating, spitting milk out and stiffening up, arching his back and crying a lot. I told the Dr and he said it sounded like intestinal spasms and gave him some drops and they seem to be working. He hasn't been awake all day! I can't wake him up. I guess he is catching up from all the crying and awake time he has had the past few days. He is already eating in peace again and taking more milk. I hope it continues. He hasn't seemed to have a stomach ache all day. I am so thankful.
