And in this corner...weighing in at 8 lbs, 9 oz and 21 3/4 inches long....just 2 weeks old....Grant! Yesterday Grant went for his 2-week check. His jaundice is clearing up nicely and he's growing like a WEED! He weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz at birth and just 2 wks later - 8 lbs 9 oz! He's becoming more and more alert - searching with his eyes to focus on whomever is holding him or talking to him. He's hungry A LOT, sleeps A LITTLE, and cute absolutely all of the time.

He lost his cord last week and so we were able to give him his first real bath....which he hated. The boy HATES being changed, bathed...anything involving naked. But he smelled absolutely edible after his bath. Is there a better smell in the world than a freshly bathed new baby? I don't think so! Sorry for the shot of the privates below - but a mother needs her obligatory naked baby shot for the baby book, right? Something to embarrass him later in life when he brings home a new girlfriend?
