Seth Update

Our little guy is still that...  little.  He had a dr. check up on Thurs. and at seven weeks, he still weighed less than both Nathan and Hannah did at birth.  He was 8 lb, 2 oz (Hannah was 8 lb 3 oz and Nathan was 8 lb 4 oz).  This is only the 25th percentile for the Downs growth chart.  He was 20.25 inches, also the 25th percentile.  His little peanut head is only 14 cm around which is the 5th percentile.  I always wanted a little one and I got it.  He is so sweet and cuddly.

Seth started his once a week therapy last week.  For an hour a week a sweet gal named Susan will be working with him to become more aware of the world around him, strengthening his muscles, and reaching his milestones.  Although on average, Downs kids are later on pretty much every milestone, this isn't always the case.  Seth is already lifting his head well.  I am just waiting for that first official "real" smile.  

Seth also had his first official photo shoot.  Our friend Andre took beautiful pictures of him.  Now we just need to get some taken of the whole family.  (I am having trouble uploading the pics....)

Hope you all are well!
