Corbin is 1 month old!

Where did the days go? I feel like our little man is growing up so fast and it's only been a month. While he might not be growing up fast, he is definitely growing fast. We had his one month check up and he is in the 95th percentile for height and OFF.THE.CHARTS for weight! We have a tank in the making! He weighed in at 13 1/2 pounds ... which means he is gaining more than a pound a week. While I would much rather him be a chunkster than not gaining enough, this kid eats more often than I ever expected.
Everything else looked great at his appointment. I talked with the pediatrician about his fussiness (okay, total purple-faced screaming) again to make sure he looked him over real good to rule out anything else. He says everything looks good and that its either a reflux thing or just a high maintenance baby. I'm also working on cuting out dairy to see if that helps at all ... but its SO hard to do.
I have faith that things will just keep getting better as we have good days more and more often. And I'm finally starting to understand his cues better so that helps.
So we have one month in the record books. It feels like just yesterday we were checking into the hospital, anticipating his arrival. We couldn't love him more and look forward to all the things he has in store for the future.
And here is one more picture of our chunkster ... he is the silliest little man.
