Daryoosh had his 2-month checkup yesterday. What a show-off.
First of all, he weighed in at 13 lb, 3 oz (he was born only 6 lb 9 oz). Like his brother 2 years earlier, he doubled his birth weight. Yago also doubled his birth weight by 2 months, but he had much less to gain!
Everything looked good. Healthy boy in the 75th percentile in weight. Yes, a son of mine has reached the 75th percentile in a statistic. Wow. I never would have believed it. Well, he is a big boy, isn’t he? He’s in the 25th percentile in height. I guess that officially makes him fat, right? No doubt that the Wii fit would label him as obese. 🙂 I love my little rolly polly.
Speaking of rolling, apparently Daryoosh may have passed his 4-month check-up as well…when the doc asked me if he holds his head up, I figured we’d show her…not only did he raise his head higher than he ever had at any tummy session at home; not only did he then proceed to prop himself up on his elbows; but after that he put his arm under him as if he were going to roll onto his back. I nipped that one in the bud right away. It’s too early for rolling around. I’m enjoying the fact that he stays in one place…for now.
So Daryoosh has a clean bill of health! And no, he’s not being placed on a diet. At least I don’t have to worry if he’s getting enough to eat! But look out Yago…soon your brother will be able to spend his days giving you a run for your money (and toys).
Here’s a picture from the appointment:
I took pictures at Yago’s checkup as well. Check out my webpage to see how they compared at two months!
