Drs and clothes

So it's been a pretty fun week so far. On monday we had a doctors appointment, mostly to check and make sure he still wasn't jaundiced. We also wanted to make sure he was doing ok, though, because he'd been throwing up pretty often and we were afraid he wasn't getting enough nutrients. This was obviously our first time meeting the pediatrician, but I really liked him. He seemed nice and really good at what he did. He told us Steven looked great! He also said that as long as he's pooping and peeing, we have nothing to worry about in terms of the excess spitting up. It's normal for babies, I guess. Also, they weighed him but that didn't give us to much information. When he was born he weighed 7 lbs 7 oz and the scale at the doctor's said he was already up to 7 lbs 12 oz. After a second weighing, it was decided that there must just be a discrepancy between the two scales, and so we're not really sure how much, if any, weight he's gained back. He was so good for the doctor too! He just laid there while the doctor was poking him and checking him all over. I'm more amazed every day by what a good baby he is.
Also, I dressed Steven in regular clothes for the first, and then second, time! I new he was the cutest little boy, but I had no idea he was this cute! :) The clothes swallow him, but he still is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I don't know if he loved wearing them though...
Also, we caught him sucking on his wrist. It's probably not the best habit for him to develop, but it's still so cute!
AND, he fell asleep like this yesterday and I just thought it was so adorable. Wow, I really sound a little obsessed...

Steve is such a cute baby! Babies always look so cute when you put "real" clothes on them! I love the sleeping picture too. I think babies are so cute when they sleep like that because their arms are so short -- they can't even reach the top of their heads! Sorry to hear about the spitting up; I guess you're getting a lot of use of all the burp cloths I sent. Spitting up is something I definitely do not miss about having a newborn! Take care!
