10 pounds 10 ounces

What a change in our "little" man! From dropping a whole pound in four days at the beginning to gaining 2 pounds and 10 ounces in three weeks! Jude weighed in at 10 lbs, 10 ozs today (and 22 in) meaning that he's really gotten the hang of this breast feeding thing:-)

The sad news is that we were only at the doctor because we suspected him to be sick. Turns out that it is normal for newborns to get congested at night, especially in winter, but that congestion caused him an ear infection:-( But a bottle of amoxicillian and we're on the mend (hopefully).

Jude is doing so good. It is to bad that he has an ear infection. Vickie did too. Don't worry I'm sure he'll be fine. Just keep up the good work mommy and daddy.

one word - humidifier. we had the same problem with nathaniel, he was always congested when he was a newborn, the humidifier really helped.
that and we found out he is probably allergic to dogs because we went and stayed in a dog-free home and his congestion went away. coincidental?
