"He's a bruiser!"

That's what the nurse said when I took Owen in for a weight check this morning.  He's a whopping 7 lbs 9 oz!!!  That means he gained a pound-and-a-half in less than 3 weeks.  We've also taken a tape measure to him, and our unofficial finding is that he's over 21 inches.  He may have had a slow start, but he's really catching up!

Owen has also started staying awake more after he eats.  He likes to lay in his crib or on a blanket on the floor and kick his legs.  He also likes to look at brightly colored objects.  His current favorite is the red Astros cap Jennifer gave him.  I tried to take a picture of it this morning, but the camera battery died.  Look for it in a forthcoming blog.
