Everett is big.  He was born on the large side, then lost some weight, which caused the pediatrician to instruct us to feed him every two hours for the next 24 hours, during which he gained 8 ounces or about 5% of his body weight.  In the following week and a half he gained about two pounds.  He has now outgrown his newborn clothing.  Breastmilk is apparently a fantastic growth medium.

We have a close friend who is a pediatric physical therapist, and she has often emphasized to us the importance of “tummy time” for babies.  Apparently babies these days are spending quite a bit of time on their backs, leading to flattened heads and other problems.  Michelle, this picture is for you.
