one month pediatrician visit

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

yesterday i cursed living in an apartment with elevators for the first time. it's always a pain to carry mw in his car seat, especially now that he weighs more. so there i was with mw in his car seat, diaper bag, and a store bag since we were going to make a pit stop on the way back from his pediatrician visit. i walked to the elevator, and it's not normally a long walk but with the aforementioned things that i was carrying, it seemed like a really long walk. of course, i get to the first elevator, and it's reserved. so i'm trying to decide if i want to walk over to the second elevator or just take the stairs. i opted for the second elevator. i get to the second elevator, and they are testing it. i just wanted to scream! since i had brought the baby bjorn, i put that on, and put him in it, and walked back, past the first elevator, and started down the stairs. i had parked on the 2nd floor of the parking deck. there were lots of stops on the way.
so there i was, with baby in baby carrier, diaper bag in the car seat, all lop sided, just walking and stopping every few steps. stupid elevators!
anyhow, i got to the car, put the car seat in and put mw in his car seat. of course, he is crying and i'm thinking maybe he'll be quiet once the car starts going. but no, he doesn't. so before we pulled onto the highway, i stopped on the side of the road, and fed my little brat, just enough so we could get there since we were already running behind. writing all this now makes it seem so trivial, but in the moment, it was a little mountain that i didn't know if i could overcome.
anyways, onto more important things. his one month stats!
height: 21 1/4 inches (26%)
weight: 10 lb (49%)
head circumference: 14 1/2 inches (15%)
bd had texted me before the appointment, hoping that he was at least 8 lbs, but nope! he was more than that. 10 lbs! that's about a little under a pound gained a week so i'm really proud of my little squirt. hopefully he starts growing a little taller as well, but only my short genes can be to blame for that :)

afterwards, we went to the mall to walk around. the h&m at perimeter mall by far has the best kids' clothes that i have seen so far. i definitely know where i'll go to get him some cute clothes when i need to get some more.
of course, i had to feed him in the car before we came home. i'm starting to realize that i need to be ready at all times, especially if i'm going to go out and about. it is a little more work, but it keeps me sane.
happy tuesday!
