Apparently my newborn is no longer a newborn. Today, at 6 weeks old, we upgraded Weston from Newborn to Size 1 diapers. I know there's not THAT much size difference between the two, but to me the Size 1's look H-U-G-E, too huge to fit my little newborn, but alas, they are not. Sniff sniff.
It is SO true that they grow and change so fast. I can't believe he is 6 weeks today! The other day I asked Brett why baby fingernails grow so quick. His quick and all too simple answer: "Because their whole bodies grow so quick." Duh!!
Weston's "stats" from his last apt. at 5 weeks:
Height: 22 1/2 in. (80th %ile)
Weight: 10 lbs. 0 oz. (50th %ile)
Head Cir.: 14 1/4 in. (30th %ile)
Weston's pediatrician was VERY happy with his rapid weight gain because at his last appointment only a few weeks before this one, he was measuring 80th %ile for height, but only 15th %ile for weight! LONG and LEAN! He's definitely figured out how to eat since then and is now putting on weight like a champ, jumping up 35%ile in a matter of a few weeks! This could partially due to the fact that he's also developed some colicky gas issues in the last few weeks, and feeding him more often keeps him happier. As a result, he's recently developed his first thigh creases and some chubby cheeks that chipmunks would be envious of. :)
A few things Weston likes:
bath time, his swing/bouncer, his Mylicon drops (thankfully!), being swaddled, his car seat, sucking his thumb (we will quickly be putting an end to this), and cuddling
A few things Weston does NOT like:
tummy time, cold hands, having his clothes changed, being set down or ignored, his sling, and church
