Collins - First Bath & Three Weeks Old Stats


Collins had his first real bath this past Friday. I think he felt great afterwards!

Rub-A-Dub-Dub just chillin' in the tub!
Once the shock wore off, he relaxed quite nicely.

Not too happy about being taken out of the nice warm bath.

Today, we had our three-week check up for Collins. He is doing great and continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Last night, he gave us a 5-hour and a 4-hour stretch of sleep and I felt great this morning because of it. He is starting to lose his dark hair just like his brothers did when they were infants. His lighter hair is staying. He still eats every 3 hours and we let him sleep until he wakes up at night. He definitely likes to be walked around and held upright so that he can see everything. He's very alert. His 3wk. stats are:

Height: 21 inches (75%)
Weight: 10.7 pounds (90%)
Head Circ: 39.4cm. (90%)

He's nearly gained 2 lbs. in one week - 1lb. 8oz. exactly. When I see him growing like this it makes getting up in the middle of the night a little bit easier but no less exhausting!
