Austin is one month old today! The time has gone by so fast. It’s strange…it feels like he’s always been here, yet it feels like we just brought him home yesterday. Does that make sense? Probably not. I’ll go ahead and blame it on lack of sleep. ;-)
Austin had his one month doctor appointment today. His pediatrician is very impressed with his growth. As far as percentiles go, children with down syndrome are on a different chart because they tend to be smaller. He’s in the 95th percentile for his height. 80th percentile for his weight and 65th percentile for his head circumference. Austin’s pediatrician said he is actually quite tall for a child with Down Syndrome. I find this particularly funny because I’m ridiculously short and Ryan is merely average height. He goes back in a month and will get his shots. What do you bet I’ll cry more than he does?
As we were wrapping up the appointment today, Austin’s pediatrician said that she sees great things in his future. I smiled and agreed. There are definitely great things in his future!
Happy one month baby. Mommy loves you more than you could ever know.
