Kaleb Wells, Superbaby

Just got back from our three-week post-partum visit with the midwife. Kaleb now weighs in at 10 lbs. 14 oz., which means that he's put on 24 oz. (1.5 lbs) over the last 12 days. The high end of normal for such a period at his age would be around 15 oz. There was another baby there who was born the same day as K. and it was freakin' tiny! (circa 7 lbs.) Hard not to feel smugly superior. Numbers aside, the little guy is clearly thriving.

Grow! Grow like the wind, Kaleb!

(PS, don't get into comparing numbers with me... August is now over 18lbs at three months. I already have his college scholarship in hand.)

Gawd, I hope you've got him on a jogging regimen, or he's going to be super-blimp-baby!
