Here we are at Monito's 2 week wellness checkup. You can barely tell that I haven't showered in 3 days. Grandma and Pequita stayed in the waiting room playing and watching other kids play while I took Monito back for his exam. In one week, he has gained a whole pound and grown a quarter inch, making him 10 lbs 3.2 oz and 22.5 inches long. He is firmly in the 95th percentile in both categories. Yay for good fatty breast milk! I absolutely believe that comfort nursing Pequita in the months before Monito's birth primed my pump and helped my flow and quality.
And a comparison in size and alertness. Pequita at 8.3 months old is so beautifully plump. We call her the Hunk-a Hunk-a burning baby love. We'll see if Monito (2 weeks exactly in the photo below) stays lanky or if he follows in his sister's footsteps.
