1 Week Check-up

Today Garrett had his first check-up. He was very good and did not fuss at all the entire visit! He did make a little wet mess on daddy as he removed Garrett's clothes to be weighed. The nurse assured us that it happens all the time! Garrett weighed 7 lbs 12 oz when he was born; 7 lbs 2 oz when he left the hospital; and is now back up to 7 lbs 13 oz, which is right on track. I asked about the fact that he has occasionally been experiencing some deep, gurgly-sounding hiccups, but his doctor assured us that is normal. Other than that he's perfect!
Dressed up & ready to see the doctor!
On the way home...even though his brow is furrowed, Garrett does love to ride in his car seat!
His next visit will be in 2 months. I don't imagine he'll do as well since he'll receive a series of shots...we'll see!

Other than that, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Grandma VandeBerg. She will be here Sunday & we can't wait for her to meet Garrett! I know she is super-excited as well. He will be a very spoiled baby for the next 2 weeks!

Oooooooo---he is so cute! Thanks for updating your blog and for including all of the great pictures. I ate lunch with Shelly and Colt today, and we're already telling him he'll get to meet his new cousin one of these days. Hope they get to spend a lot of time together during their childhood years. Congratulations!!!
