Fry's three month checkup

We're just home from Fry's three month checkup and I'm going to write this quickly while he's still knocked out in his stroller. Fry is now measuring in at 62 cm (24.4 inches) and a whopping 7.2 kilos (that's 15.9 pounds!)! That's a whole kilo, or 2.2 pounds, in one month! The doctor suggested that I'm feeding him too much, so I sincerely asked him how I'm supposed to feed him less. He admitted that there isn't much we can do, but if he gains as much again this month, we may go ahead and start him on veggies next month.

He also had his first vaccinations today and he was a champion!! For the first one, he barely batted an eye, but the second one was the more painful one but he only cried for a minute! The doctor did warn me that next month will be worse, though.

The bad news is that it looks like he's got his first gastro. He's been super fussy for a few days now, not able to rest during the day, and today he woke us up at 6:30 with, shall we say, an uncomfortable bum. He's wearing disposibles until his butt is in a happier place and he's got special food to eat until he seems to be back to normal and we can go back to his regular food.

Whoops, looks like my giant gourmand of a baby is waking up... you kids have a great weekend!
