Weight Check...

We went to the doctor again today to get Emerson's weight checked. At first he didn't gain enough weight, so they wanted me to feed more often and see if my milk is enough for him. So on Friday, we went in and got his weight checked again. He had gained 12 oz...in a week! We asked if we could not wake him up at night anymore and have him just eat when he wants to. They said lets do that for a few days and see if his weight still goes up as much and if not then we have to wake him up again. So at the appointment today his weight was up to 8 lbs. 12 oz. Another 7 ozs. in 4 days!!! I can't believe that he is more than a pound over his birth weight. I think that it is showing and it makes me sad that my baby is growing so fast. Howevert the plus side to it is Jason and I get to sleep through the night unless Emery wakes up hungry!!! No more waking Emerson up and stressing about him falling to sleep in the middle of a feeding!

Here are some pictures of my little Emerson. I need to get as many as I can before he starts growing much more.
One to end...A classic I am done and get that camera out of my face shot!

I'm so glad to hear he is gaining weight and you don't have to wake him up in the middle of the night! :)
