Whoorlito Update

We just returned from Wito’s 10-week checkup, where he had the immense pleasure of receiving 2 shots in each thigh. Because truly, why just one shot when you can drive another needle into the same painful locale? Brilliant!

Can you tell I’m a new parent? Bitter! Bitter, I tell you. Of course, Wito feels great. He cried for about 30 seconds and went back to blowing raspberries. I, on the other hand, pulled a total Rainman- pacing back and forth while repeating “Mama’s here, mama’s here…” on and on and INFINITELY on.

Pacing aside, our pediatrician confirmed what I already knew. Wito is huge (90th percentile for height and 70th percentile for weight). The nurse walked into the exam room and proclaimed “Now, THAT’S a healthy horse!” Uh-huh. Yeah. Big boy.

However, we can’t really figure out why. I guess D and I are both on the tall side of average, but nothing too crazy, and we both are pretty slight. It must be my impressive milk factory rack (patting my own back- take THAT, mastitis). Who knows where that buddha belly came from, but I love it. I think I might eat it with some fava beans this evening. Tasty.

Beyond the big and the happy, Wito might be under the assumption that he’s a werewolf living with his crazy werewolf mother.

Exhibit A (No, you did not eat crazy mushrooms. It’s the video):

    Sooo cute!
    Who’s a lucky little werewolf? Anders is!

    Gawed, couldn’t you just die when they start crying or getting upset? I swear my body temp rises when little Elliott bear gets upset and I have no other option than to let her eat my hair! :) It makes her very happy and content.

    Chubby baby doing baby howls? WAY TOO CUTE. I definitely second the motion for Anders and Avelyn to have an international love affair. :)

    He is just beautiful (not to mention bigger than my nine month old granddaughter, I think). She finally hit 14 lbs 12 oz and is nine months. Ready to walk, but miniscule!

    Sorry about the mastitis. That is miserable, I well know, but it is obviously having little effect on Baby A!
