Today we went to the first-week check-up at the pediatrician's office. The doctor looked at the notes.
"Hmm. He's at 9 lbs., 14 oz., and his birth weight was 9 lbs., 10 oz. So he's gained 4 ounces over a week. Usually we like to see babies gain about an ounce a day ..."
My husband pointed out that when we had come in for the 24-hour visit on Saturday, the baby weighed 9 lbs., 3 oz., so he'd gained 11 ounces, not three.
"Oh!" Eyebrows went up. "Well, I'd say he's doing pretty well, then."
