We have an 8 pounder!!!

My boys showing off their muscles!

An 8 pound kid that is...not a salmon, or at least not lately! Forrest had his 2 week weigh in today, and he was tipping the scales at 8 lbs, 3 oz. This gives his breast feeding mama a welcome sigh of relief that she is indeed NOT starving her baby, (As Forrest often leads her to believe with his incessant nursing hour after hour...)
He was 7lbs, 5 oz when we left the hospital now14 days ago, so that is almost a pound in 2 weeks...Not bad!
He is also great in every other way, showing off his mad skills by peeing and pooping just prior to his official weigh in, of course waiting until there was no diaper to scoop up the mess...infants will be infants!
Mom's doc appt. went well also...no 100 mile bike rides in the near future, but she can do without that for now!
And, for dinner, pizza with Owen's family! Owen and Forrest I'm sure will be best of buds for all their years growing up...as they already both have dad's that are fishing fanatics and great friends as well...Thanks to the Peterson Family!
