Carson continues to surprise us. Today at his pediatrician appointment he weighed just over 9 lbs! I began to worry that he was gaining too much weight, was I contributing to the obesity epidemic? But my doctor assured me that this was wonderful news and that Carson is growing at not only an impressive level, but a healthy one too.
Carson's head size is also right where it should be, still no need for a shunt. We really hope that this continues!
This morning we visited Dr. Naum, Carson's plastic surgeon. He said that Carson's back closure looked excellent; normally the scar is a "cross shape," but Carson's is only a single line. He explained that this was due to fact that Carson's lesion was so small, and that he had great muscle and skin tissue to work with.
All these positive appointments have been pretty amazing. Since Carson's birth I have left almost every appointment in tears- the good kind.
As my grandma would say, Carson is such a trouper. He hardly cries or fusses and now sleeps in 5hr+ durations! As evident in his weight, he loves to eat and noisily chugs it down. Carson's getting chubbier especially in his face. Today I dislodged his pacifier which was stuck in his double chin, and his cheeks are perfect for constant kissing.
We're pretty sure he can't get any cuter!
