He said if Uma gets one, he gets one too.

Bigger and better?

We took advantage of a scale at a children's resale store today to weigh The Boy. After subtracting clothes, he came in at approximately 12 lbs., 2 oz. The last time we weighed him was March 26, when he weighed 9 lbs., 7 oz. He's gained 43 oz. in the last 21 days. At 2 ounces/day, I'm guessing that he was 11 lbs., 8 oz. last Thursday, when he was 6 weeks and a day old. I mention that particular day because we have a weight for Uma at that age; she was 10 lbs., 1 oz. She had gained 55 oz. over her birth weight
She was a healthy eater, but he beats her record; he gained 66 oz. since birth to 6 weeks. Those chubby cheeks weigh a lot.

Babies this age don't do much, so all I have to write about is his weight. On the other main subject, he's slept over 6 hours a night three nights in a row. One night he slept something like 11:30pm to 7:45am. I hope I haven't jinxed it. He's mellower in many ways than Uma was, but I think she was more tolerant of being put down while awake. He won't stay in his papasan, his swing, his bouncy chair, or lying on the bed for more than 10 minutes at a time, in general.
