No, our carseat did not get smaller. In less than ten weeks, J. Owen has grown 5 inches in height and gained over 7.5 pounds!!! And let me tell ya, he is a breastmilk-only baby! I have been accused of producing cream of wheat. :)
On Monday we went to the seminary so Owen could get his first round of immunizations. Several moms told me that out of the three shots, typically babies don't really know what's going on when the first needle goes in. By the second needle you have the baby's attention and by the third needle they are crying. Not my child. He's smarter than that. He knew what was going on as soon as the first shot started. Before the needle was out he was SCREAMING his little head off. He has a good set of lungs!
My pediatrician asked me if I read books to Owen and if we talk to him a lot. I told him we did. He said he could tell because of how alert he is. Apparently he smiles and coos a lot for a child his age. Maybe the doctor tells every mom that to make her feel good. It worked.
