So much to catch up on here, but a quick update on how our little buddy has grown since birth (from yesterday's 18 day check-up).

10 pounds (9lbs, 3 oz at birth... aprox 8lbs, 13 oz when we left the hospital... I forgot the exact weight)
21.25 in (21 in at birth)
14.5" head circumference (14" at birth)

He's topping the growth charts right now, but I expect he'll be a typical breastfed baby and slow down/lose when he gets more mobile. He was called "perfect" by the doctor... and mommy and daddy couldn't agree more (but we're biased).

In other developmental milestones, Robert has been holding his head up longer and longer each day. He's getting quite strong - and fighting us at diaper changes has actually become a competitive sport =)

Other updates from this weekend (baptism and family time) when my sleeping beauty is otherwise occupied. For now, I'm enjoying my baby time!
