Leo turned 4 weeks old this week, and we went to his 4 week checkup on Tuesday. Not only has his head grown 1/2 inch and his height 1/2 inch, but he is all the way up to 12 pounds! He gained two pounds in two weeks. Whew! I mean it felt like he was getting heavier but seriously. He has also outgrown some of the newborn size outfits already, no surprise there.
He is also starting to enjoy the occasional bottle of pumped breastmilk, which is a win-win for all of us. That allowed me to get out of the house last night for a girly-girl beauty event that Kristin organized at a salon downtown, while Byron was a superdad and wrangled Leo all evening. A real treat for me! And now our major project is working on packing up our apartment for our move to South Bend in a week and a half. Whee! If only Leo would start pulling his weight and pack up his room for us.
