2 Week Well Check and Circumcision

Monday was Seth's 2 week well check, even though he is 3 weeks old now. The doctor says that everything is looking good. He now weighs in at 9 lbs 5 oz and his length is 22 1/4 inches. He is 75 percentile for his weigh and 95th for his height. He is really tall. I wonder where he gets that from. :)
Monday was also Seth's circumcision. He was a very fussy little guy that day. He just seemed like he couldn't get comfortable. Poor guy. He is healing well though and today we go in for a nurses check to see how much longer I need to use the vaseline and gauze.
We are also taking him for his PKU screening. I'm not looking forward to that. I'm hoping he does as well as Joss did. For those that don't know about the PKU screening, it is a blood test they do on newborns to check for thyroid problems. They do the test by pricking the foot and squeezing 5-6 droplets of blood into these circles on a piece of paper. There are 4 or 5 circles to fill. The babies do not like this test, though I think it is harder on the mommies.
