we've gained, folks!

Quick update from Alexander's "weight check" appointment today:

head circumference: 46 cm (85th percentile)
height: 26.5 in. (20th percentile)
weight: 17.4 pounds (19th percentile) - that's a 3 pound gain in just over a month!

The doctor said he looks great and that he's growing at a good rate now. She said we could add another "solid" meal to the mix in a few weeks, making it 3 a day. I'm having tons of fun feeding him a huge variety of foods. It is so cool to watch him experience new tastes and textures!

That's about all I've got for now. I'll leave you with a picture:

This is the "apples & chicken" dinner and boy did he LOVE it! He ate the whole jar in one sitting, which I think is the first time he's done that. Mmm!
