Chunky Monkey

Our appointment with Sawyer's pediatrician, Dr. N, went great today!  Our little boy is filling out quickly!!  He weighed in at 8 pounds 7 ounces today and 21 and 3/4 inches.  His head grew an inch as well!  He is in the 38 percentile for weight, 84th for height and 56th for head circumference.  Dr. N said that it is normal for most newborns to gain about an ounce a day and our little guy, being the over achiever that he is, almost doubled that in the 10 days since his last appointment.  His daddy and I couldn't be more proud!  I love chunky babies and if he doesn't keep getting taller, we might get a chance at a chubby baby!!  Of course I'll think he's the cutest either way but from the rolls and chins I am seeing develop on this little man, I think we have a chunky monkey in the making!!  Love him!!
