Charlie had another weight check yesterday and was up by more than a pound from last week. His father is taking to calling him "Daddy's Little Porker."

Charlie promptly starting eating every 2 hours with gusto, around the clock, when he would have been at 39 weeks gestation which supports the doctor's suspicion that his slow gain was a function of him being so young.

Charlie very much seems to be a child that develops various skills abruptly and a bit ahead of the curve if his birth and eating are anything to go by. He is now furiously working on making his head stay up and had his first tummy time yesterday. He seems to be closing in on a smile although I'm more looking forward to eye contact.

GOOD NEWS! I'm glad he's doing well. It's so scary and hard that first little bit but y'all are doing GREAT.

And didn't I post a congratulations? TELL ME I DID. Because I swear I tried and blogger ate it if it's not there (I couldn't find it?)

But I said it! And what's more: I mean it. WOOOT!
