Another doctor visit

Thomas had his circumcision appointment today. Prior to the procedure, he had another check on his weight and height. He is in the 90th percentile for length (21 inches). He keeps gaining about 1/2 inch at every appointment. He gained another 3 oz to get to 7 lb 14 oz. However, he is not getting back to his birth weight fast enough, so we are going back to pumping and supplementing to help him gain weight faster. He has been really hungry the past couple of days, eating every hour and still not getting full. The doctor thinks he is going through a little growth spurt, so we are going to try to get him enough food. Plus, it will give us a jump start on freezing some supply for when I go back to work.

We are now home again and Thomas is recovering from all the trauma (and so are his parents). We will post more pictures tomorrow.
