Day 77 – Asher’s First Day at the Doctor & a Mocha Indulgence

Day 77.

Today’s Chick-fil-A visit was at the Clearwater location because we were down that direction for a very special reason: Asher’s first visit to the doctor!  All good news to report, and the doc seemed to be super pleased with his clapping, pulling himself up, smiling, making eye contact, etc.

Here were his stats:

  • Height – 28 1/2″ (75th percentile)
  • Weight – 18 lbs 3 oz (25th percentile)
  • Head circumference – 18 1/2″ (90th percentile)

Not that I really care about all those. Someone has to bring the average up, and someone has to bring the average down. And as the doc said, as long as he’s growing, we’re all good. Besides, what if something were totally off? Would we love him any less?  Of course not, but it would give us a course of action, so I understand the need for averages and comparisons.

Here’s momma and Asher at the doc for his very first visit:

And while it looks like bacon is on this sandwich, I actually think it was baconless, which, while obviously disappointing, probably gave me an extra day to live, right? Decent tradeoff.

Okay, more work to do before the night ends. I’m sure Asher will be up in about T-minus 90 minutes for a bottle break and possible diaper change, so I’m going to get some work done between now and then.

Night folks.
