Piggy boy!

Well, I took Gavin to the pediatrician today because he has been fussy after his feedings and I was pretty sure he had reflux like Mikayla did. He does have it and they placed him on Zantac (yeah!!) The most exciting part of the visit though was when they weighed him. His last checkup was 16 days ago and he weighed 7 lbs. 1/2 oz. They are supposed to gain about 1 ounce a day so he should have gained right around one pound. Well, our little porker baby weighed 8 lbs. 10 1/2 oz. - he gained 1 lb 10 oz in 2 weeks!! I was a little worried because he only eats for 15-20 minutes and I was told by te lactation nurse that he should be eating 30-40 minutes. I guess I shouldn't be concerned.

Nana would not call him a Porker Baby just's coming though. However, he is a sweetie.
