10 Weeks

Evan had his 10-week appointment today. Apparently his head is flattened a bit on the right side (he definitely favors that side while sleeping or lying on his back)! LOL! So, we're supposed to give him more tummy time (which he hates). We'll see how that goes.

He also has a bit of a rash (ringworm) on his face, so she gave us some anti-fungal cream for that. We have no idea where he got it from, but I guess we all carry fungus on our skin. Babies just have more sensitive skin, so they can break out into a rash more easily.

He also got his first round of vaccinations, which included two needles and one oral. He did awesome with the needles! He only cried for a couple seconds after each shot.

Otherwise, he's doing awesome. Here are his stats:

Weight: 10 lbs 5 oz (6 lbs 9 oz at birth; 13th percentile*, 55th percentile for corrected age**)
Height: 61 cm (51 cm at birth; 75th percentile, 97th for corrected age)
Head circumference: 38 cm (32.5 cm at birth; 8th percentile, 38th for corrected age)

**His age if he was born on his due date (so, 5 weeks)
