One Month

Today Jude William is one month old.

How did that happen?

We had Jude's first appointment with his pediatrician on Friday, and Jude is thriving away. He has already gained 2 pounds and weighs in at 9 lbs. 3 oz, which puts him in the 40th percentile. As someone who is slightly concerned about weight gain, this gave me great joy. He is now 22 1/4 inches long, which puts him in the 80th percentile for height. So maybe there's hope for a tall Dunlap baby?

Jude is a wonderful baby guy. He definitely has fussy bouts, especially during dinner time (of course!) and when I want to take a shower in the morning. But in general, he's a great sleeper and eater. What a relief!

We love Baby Jude and can't wait to watch him grow into his little self.

I must be reading someone else's blog by mistake. See, MY friends Steve and Karen have a two day old baby or something. He's definitely not one month old already.
