Despite losing a lot of weight off the bat, Heston was back to his birth weight plus a couple of ounces a few days shy of 2 weeks old. Today he was weighed at the midwife's and is 7 pounds already and yesterday he did turn 2 weeks old. Doctors feel better when infants reach their birth weight by 2 weeks, especially if they are breastfed. Heston seems to be going above and beyond. He is going to be a porker like Gage was at this rate. I am happy he is growing but saddened he won't be so little much longer. The newborn stage never lasts long enough for me.
