1 Month

We had Cameron's 1 month check-up with Dr Howell this afternoon. I can't believe he is 1 month already. It goes by so fast!!!

Stats are- 9 lb 9 oz- 35th percentile
21 1/2 inches- 25th percentile
and his head was 65th (Cooper's was always around 90th)

He is gaining weight pretty much the same rate Cooper did. Cameron was 5 oz more at birth than Cooper and was 6 oz more at his 1 month check up.

Everything checked out good. She may have heard a slight heart murmur but she isn't concerned and just told us she will look (hear) for it at the next appointment. She did give him a prescription to treat reflux. He has been having some screaming fits, at times lasting 2-3 hours on and off. Usually mid-morning and early evening each day. She doesn't like to jump to the conclusion that a baby has colic because there really is no known cause and she wants to get to the root of the problem. I started him on the medicine tonight so hopefully in a few says we will see a difference. I'm not 100% convinced that is it I just think he needs extra attention.

I've included a picture of Cooper (the first one) and Cameron each taken at one month. I tried to get the same pose.

He's so cute. Is he cross eyed in that pic?? I love it when babies do that, hahahaha. I think that they kind of favor each other, BUT I'm beginning to think that Cameron is going to look more like his daddy.

I'm with you Gretchen, I think he does resemble Cooper but he is going to look more like Steve. One that looks like mommy and one that looks like daddy.... that's perfect!
