Packing it OnPosted: April 26, 2006
Time is going by really fast! Jameson had a big growth day yesterday. His weight yesterday was 1561 – which is 3lbs 7 ounces! He went up 92 grams in one day! His length and OFC (head size) went up also. Here are the stats: length on 4/9 = 36.8 centimeters, 4/18 = 38.2 centimeters, 4/25 = 39.7 centimeters. The doctors look for a 1.0 – 1.5 centimeter per week growth in the babies, so he is doing great! OFC on 4/9 = 28 centimeters, 4/18 = 29 centimeters, 4/25 = 31.5 centimeters. The doctors are looking for a 0.5 – 1 centimeter per week growth for that, so he is doing great there as well!
Jameson nursed 2 times yesterday, for 12 minutes one time. Jameson must have needed some rest from growing because he only went up 4 grams to 1565 today. That is still good, the nurses all said that the babies usually lose a little the next day after having a huge gain like he did yesterday. We gave Jameson his first bath today! I thought he wouldn’t like it, but he actually seemed to enjoy it a bit. That is until I got his head wet, that made him a little upset. : )
