Crumpet is One Month Old!

Today, February 15th was suppose to be Crumpet's due date. Well, since she decided to arrive one month early she is one month old today. Of course if you use the Chinese system she would be one year & one month old (the Chinese, you see, believe a baby is one year old when they're born).

Went to the pediatrician this morning - Crumpet weighed in at 7 lbs 15 ounces. To put this into perspective. She was born 5 lbs 14 ounces. She left the hospital at 5 lbs 9 ounces (typical for newborn to lose body weight in first few days). One her last doctor's visit 2 weeks ago she clocked in at 6 lbs 3 ounces. So let's do some math, carry the 2, minus 3 - that's right - Crumpet is gaining on average 2 ounces a day. Do you know what that means? That means she is adding 2 lbs a month. Whoa. Feeding mom all those braised pork and dim sum is definitely paying off (mom is heard in the background singing to the Crumpet ''you will grow up big & strong and beat up other kids in the playground'' er......

Lots of other firsts today for Crumpet - she went to her first ever Thai restaurant (Jai Thai in Fremont), her first hardware store (ACE on Roosevelt to buy a shovel) and her first REI experience (so mum can buy ski pants, dad picked up new boots & clogs)

Dinner last night - roast pork tenderloin with sauteed spinach, collard green & garlic. Dulce con leche & 'smores ice cream after.

Happy birthday to Jenni Gaynor today!
