On Tuesday we took Nate to the pediatrician for his first ever checkup. We took the other 3 boys along just for the fun of it. Of course we took along our trusty Gameboys for our older two.
Ben was quite content in his stroller. I think he was glad not to be the one being poked and prodded for a change!
Nate is doing well. He had lost some weight (normal for a newborn), and was mildly jaundiced, but otherwise his doctor had no concerns.
After the doctor visit, we went to Target and then had lunch at Fudrucker’s.
I think I overdid it that day because since then I’ve been too sore to do much of anything.
We took Nate back in to the doc yesterday to be weighed again, and unfortunately he gained only 1/2 ounce when he is supposed to gain about an ounce a day. So we are being more diligent with Nate’s feeds (he has a tendency to fall asleep 5 minutes into feeding sessions), and supplementing him with (a little) formula, and he’ll be back in for a weight check on Monday. I hope he starts gaining soon!
