This was Griffin’s first appointment in Minnesota. We loved our new doctor. Below are his current physical measurements with percentiles. (By the way, we don’t take these very seriously, but figure we might as well record them.)
Griffin will be 10 months old on Monday! Whew. We went to his pediatrician on Friday and have his latest stats. All in all, Dr. Junge is happy with his growth and progress and thinks Griffin is an all-around swell guy. Also of note is Griffin’s latest tooth count, which stands at an impressive 13.
After working our butts off to feed Griffin a zillion times a day, we were thrilled to find his weight going up. He is now heavier than he was at birth! Here are the numbers (percentiles in parentheses):
It seems that we live at the doctor’s office these days. Nothing serious, just a lot of visits that basically come down to making sure Griffin is getting enough to eat.
Griffin was nine pounds at birth, but quickly lost almost a full pound. Since this is more than 10% of his body-weight, the doctors get a bit nervous and want to check on things regularly. Between lots of lactation lessons and supplementing with formula (via a tiny tube from a syringe) we have been trying to get his weight back up.
