We took our Lucky Crane to his 8 week appointment with Dr. Cullen last Friday. Technically, it was an 8 week and 6 day appointment since mom kept forgetting to schedule it in. We are pleased to report that he is very healthy and practically perfect in every way.
He will start his vaccination shots at his next appointment. He’s on a limited schedule because mom thinks it’s best, and really- he’s not going to daycare doesn’t need too much junk in him at once. For now, I’m just fattening him up with my ridiculous amounts of breast milk to keep him chugging along. And I’m not kidding about fat! At 9 weeks old, he is a WHOPPING 25 inches long and 16 pounds, 1 ounce wide. He’s not even on the charts for his weight, is at the top of the charts for his height… and has an average sized head (thank goodness, says mom).
