Collin had a well-baby checkup today since he’ll be a month old on Sunday. We got to see his primary physician today, Dr. Bob. He’s great and Collin seemed to like him. I like the way he’s very thorough, but laid-back at the same time.
Here are the stats --
weight: 9lbs 5.5oz (up 1lb 13oz from birth)
length: 22 inches (up 2 inches from birth)
head circumference: 15.5 inches (up 1.5 inches from birth)
Collin is in about the 54th percentile for weight and length. I’m not sure about the percentile on his head size.
He got a full physical exam and everything looked great. He also got his second hepatitis B vaccine in the thigh. He only cried for a minute. :)
We’ve mostly just been hanging out this week and trying to get on a routine. Yesterday and today Collin took a 3 hour nap in the morning and then one hour naps in the afternoon. He eats, stays awake for 30-60 minutes, and then naps.
The most refreshing news of today is that Collin slept a 6-hour stretch and then a 3-hour stretch last night!!! :)
We’re having dinner tonight with Collin’s best friend Tanner and his parents Harrison and Janice. :)
I’ll leave you with a few photos from the week…
I said, “Raise your hand if you like helping Mom make dinner.” :)
I think he’s skeptical because he’s only met one chick so far, and a one-year-old is way too old for him! :)

I thought it would be interesting to record what Collin does all day, so yesterday I took notes. Here’s a pretty typical day:
6:45 wake up to eat
7:15 hang out in Dad and Mom’s bed until
they’re ready to get up
8:15 watch Mom and Dad have breakfast
8:30 sit in the boppy while Mom makes Dad’s
lunch (squeal every once in awhile to
remind her I’m helping)
8:45 kiss Daddy when he leaves for work
9-10 hang out with Mom and give advice about my
favorite birth announcements and resist
the urge to sleep
10:30 play time
11-1 nap in my crib
1:30 watch Mom eat lunch (and wish I was having
leftover Chipotle too)
2 take the dogs for a walk
3-4 nap in my crib
4:30 show off my charming personality when our
neighbor Linda visits
5-6:45 nap in my crib
7 help make dinner
7:10 take my amoxicillin
7:12 puke up my amoxicillin and all my dinner
7:13 scream while I get cleaned up and changed
7:30 snuggle with Dad during dinner
8:15 play with Daddy
8:30 bed time

Wait… you want me to take it?
Whoa! I’m holding my own toy! So you can get an idea of what it looks like and sounds like when Collin plays, here’s a video:
We got Collin’s professional pictures back! I can’t post them all yet or the birth announcements won’t be a surprise… but here are some more!

I took Collin down to Chamberlin today and introduced him to my students and coworkers. He received so many compliments about how handsome and laid-back he is!
Ryan is now on his way home, and we're doing chocolate fondue for a Valentine treat. :)

To think that we were offered the option of terminating the pregnancy is so scary, because look at this gorgeous guy!!!
On a lighter note, I took some shots of Collin during play time this morning. I sing to him and he dances. You know, it's just your average, every day newborn dance session. :)
