Two-Week Pediatrician Visit

JJ saw the pediatrician today for his 2-week check-up.  He now weighs 8 lbs 13 oz, which is around the 50th percentile.  His head circumference and length are also right in the middle.  We love our average little boy!
JJ started the appointment with a bang: upon getting undressed for his weigh-in, he revealed a poopy diaper!  But JJ behaved well for his physical exam and didn't even pee on the doctor :) Win.
The visit took a turn when he had his heel pricked to draw blood.  He was sleeping on my shoulder and that stick was a very rude awakening.  And as the nurse squeezed blood out of his heel for the next several minutes, JJ wailed like I had never heard before.  Poor little dude.  We came home and he slept for the next several hours.  Hopefully all is forgotten by now.  I can only imagine how much fun he'll have at his next appointment when he gets a vaccine in each limb ...

JJ's First Videos

Happy Birthday JJ!

JJ has finally arrived. He was born at 8:05am on 2/7/10, weighing 8lbs 6oz and measuring 20 inches in length. Labor lasted just five hours and Steph made it through without pain meds. Mom and Dad stayed a couple nights at Seton Hospital before heading home on the 9th. John, Eric and Jessica Moore came by the hospital to meet him. JJ is as healthy as can be and has already survived his first visit to the pediatrician. Steph and I are enjoying getting to know our son and trying to get in as much sleep as he will let us.
