Our Pororo

We got this Pororo hat as a gift

and I've been meaning to get some shots of Charlie in it

it's a little bit big

but I think he still looks pretty darn cute in it

the other day we also had our first follow-up appointment
with the Pediatric GI Specialist. 

both of the kiddos go in every 8 weeks 
for weight checks.

Claire has gained 1 ounce shy of a pound
{that is HUGE for us}

She's now weighing in at 24 lbs 11 ounces

Charlie is now 21 lbs 7 ounces

... pretty sure he'll be passing her up soon ...

his height to weight ratio is 50% 

Our doctor thought that both of the kiddos
were looking really good. 

That made for a super good day. 

And then on top of that, our Social Worker
came by for our second Post Placement visit. 
{hard to believe that it's been 3 months already}

She thought that Charlie was doing really well
and was surprised at how secure he seemed
and made the comment that he acts 
like he's always been here.

Wonderific that's Terrific!

Of course all the credit for that simply goes straight to Charlie.
His personality lends himself to being a 
'go with the flow' type of kid.

I actually wonder if it has something to do with the fact
that he was in the hospital so much. Like maybe he was kinda
used to meeting new people all the time so it's not that
big of a deal to him anymore. 

Maybe when he starts talking I can ask him.

So here's what happens when you give Charlie rice
but forget to put a bib on him. 
Good thing he's washable.
