9 pounds!

Although EH is still a tiny peanut of a baby compared to his peers of the same age, he's definitely growing.  All of the "newborn" sized onesies and pajamas that we bought him a few weeks ago are finally getting too tight or too short and he just looks bigger.

He's more alert these days and has started cooing and smiling and grabbing and batting at things.  It's so cute and it almost makes up for all of the nights he keeps me up crying.

But we're making some progress slowly but surely in that area as well.....  Hopefully I'll have good news to report on the sleep front soon.

So anyway, we weighed him yesterday and he came in at a whopping 9 pounds!  Finally! I feel like we missed the 8 pound window altogether, since the last time I knew his weight he was 7 pounds 15 ounces. (Or was it 7 pounds 13 ounces? I can't remember.)

In any case, he's finally definitely growing.  Sadly, we'll probably never be able to get him into the summer outfits that we received as gifts in size 0 to 3 months, because by the time he'll really fit into them it will be winter - at least the way this fall has been going.  Maybe we'll just have to take a vacation to a warm destination!  (Probably not, but a girl can dream, right?)

We goes for his two month well-visit in just under 2 weeks, and I can't wait to see what percentile he's going to fall into then.  I just know that he's going to be out of the single digits, probably in terms of percentile AND poundage.
