Baby phat

After three weeks, Colin has finally surpassed his birth weight and is packing on the pounds. And after three weeks of hand-wringing, his mother is so very glad. Nursing got off to a rough start for us, with Colin losing more than a pound during his first week of life. Most newborns lose weight their first week, but Colin lost so much weight that it necessitated a midnight run to the emergency room.

Since then, nursing has gone smoothly, and I daresay it's now Colin's favorite pastime. His mama's favorite pastime is watching her little boy grow that precious double chin ... and documenting it with her camera, of course.
