Can someone explain to me where the time goes?
Today is Nathan's one month birthday. Our kid is ONE MONTH OLD!! Just... wha... how... I... yowza.
Even though it's his birthday, the gift received was basically for all three of us. We had a doctor check-up this morning and Nate has gained one pound in the last week!! Yay!! Now he's only four ounces shy of his birth weight.
I'm not sure how many of you were aware that he had been progressively losing weight. Sure, all babies lose up to a pound from their birth weight, but the gaining tends to start back up a week or two after that. Nate did not. He kept losing, although only in tiny increments (two ounces per weigh in).
So this morning's weigh in was VERY VERY welcome news, indeed.
Thank you, Nate-O, for eating!
Enjoy it, kid. It's going to be one of the few times in life you are lauded for gaining weight.
Here are some more pictures Katie and I have snapped over the last week or so.
Back in high school and college, I was pretty heavy into collecting sports jerseys. Mostly hockey with a handful of baseball and football thrown in for good measure. Anybody who knew me back in high school likely remembers me wearing almost nothing but hockey jerseys.
I don't have as many now as I once did. I sold off quite a few and now only own three football jerseys (all Bears), two hockey (Blackhawks and Whalers), and three baseball (Giants, Yankees, and Cardinals).
It dawned on me the other day a funny thing about my collection of baseball jerseys... all three of them were still in the playoffs. The only team missing for full playoff representation in my jersey collection was the Detroit Tigers.
Of course, as of yesterday, the Yankees were removed from the list by a high-achieving Tigers team and it looks as though the Giants may be bumped out by the Cardinals tonight, but still and all the same. Pretty cool.
In honor, I decided to wear one of them to work today. I'm sure Nilsa will appreciate this picture...
I must admit, though, that if it does wind up being Tigers vs. Cards in the World Series, I'm rooting for Detroit. I've always dug on hard scrabble teams with lower-than-average budgets that can still win against large market teams.
