Under the Weather & 3.5 Week Update on Owen

At almost a month old Owen is doing wonderfully. He’s actually started hitting some milestones! He started smiling back at me this week and cooing/laughing! There’s nothing like the smile of your own child smiling back at you!

Yesterday Owen was weighed and measured. He weighs 10 1/2 lbs, he’s 21 1/2 inches long, and his head is 15inches. He’s now out of his 0-3 month clothes and fitting into his 3 month clothes rather well! It blows me away on how quickly he’s grown in such a short time! I’m glad though, he’s a very healthy little boy.

Sadly this week Owen has come down with his first cold that he no doubt caught from his big sister. I guess I’ll have to get used to that. Melody was 7 months old when she got her first cold but she didn’t have an older sibling to pass it on to her. I’m sick too came down with the cold the same time as Owen but feeling on the mend. I’m glad I’m nursing because breast milk provides your baby with antibodies, which are important for fighting infection and strengthening baby’s immune system.

What did you do for your baby when they had a cold?
