An eight pounder

Meet our child....who may or may not be turning into a turtle :) 

The hair standing up in the back of his head is what really makes me laugh. G'Pops took this photo over the weekend and it's so cute (see more below)

In other baby news, Connor is moving full steam ahead and now weighs 8lbs 2oz and is 21 inches long. That's a two pound and two inch gain in the month since he was born. His cheeks have filled out and this morning his arms and wrists actually looked plump to me. He's still sucking down the bottles and feeding on a regular basis, so this growing boy is just going to keep on growing. He's even moved up a diaper size from "newborn" to size 1!!

At our doctors appt yesterday he also got a shot (hep b) and was NOT happy about it. His facial expression went from a mild cry as the nurse looked him over to an absolutely terrified wail as she gave him the shot. Can't say it was fun for any of us.

But he's a heathly little guy and we will be back in a month for another check-up. We're hoping hell be able to enter the world of double digit weight and will tip the scales at 10lbs+.
