5 months appt

I'm 25 inches long (25%), 13 pounds, 2 ounces (8th percentile), and 41 cm head (8th percentile). I gained some weight, so hopefully I'll keep it up. Mom says she's starting me on solid foods ASAP to help me out.

My favorite activity is pulling my Mom's hair. And guess what - I've been sleeping 8 and 9 hour stretches! Too bad it's usually 6 pm to 3 am....

Are you starving me?

I returned to the doctor today for a weight check since I gained so little 2 weeks ago. Well, not only did I not gain weight, but I lost 2 ounces! The doctor did not like seeing that, saying I was too young for that to happen. She made my Mom go to a lactation consultant, who subsequently gave my Mom lots of ideas for increasing her milk supply. Everyone's at work to make me the fattest Chen yet!

First fever

I was shivering in the middle of the night from my first fever reaching 101.8. By the next morning it was gone. Weird. Guess that breast milk does wonders.
