We went for our 2-month well visit today, and here are the latest statistics:
Height: 20.5 inches [1 inch growth from last month]
Weight: 10lbs, 8oz. – only a little more than a pound more than last month. As the doctor pointed out, neither Neil nor I are too big ourselves, so it’s not very surprising…but after last month’s 3 pound weight increase it’s a big decrease in growth rate. Alon’s pediatrician didn’t seem concerned, though.
Head circumference: 38 centimeters. His head is bigger than it was last month.
In addition to height/weight and various other checks, Alon had his first set of immunizations today. It was a bit of a traumatic experience – more for him than for me, but a little bit for both of us. Luckily we have 2 months before we have to do that again!
On a happier [and very cute] note, here’s Alon’s latest picture – taken yesterday at a new mom’s group that I have been attending periodically. Samantha, to his left, is just 3 days younger than Alon. The two of them seemed to get along quite well!
