Sorry everyone for being such a slacker on Sid's blog. It's been over a month since my last post. Here's an update on our little guy...
Sidney is encroaching on 12lbs, if he's not already there yet. This little bugger is growing SO fast. It was only a few short months ago while he was in the NICU that he was in the 5th percentile for his weight. He's now in the 75th percentile! He's 22 inches long too...he's grown over 10 inches since he was born. What an accomplishment.
He surprises us every day. Just last week, he started smiling and laughing. It's like it happened with a snap of the fingers. He just decided that he wanted to start smiling all of a sudden. Hey, I'm not complaining. :) He's got the cutest smile I've ever seen...it's one of those whole face smiles. He beams from ear to ear.
We've been taking Sidney for walks around the neighborhood since he doesn't really get out much as a result of being in isolation per doctor's orders. He seems to really like the walks. The fresh air is probably good for him since he's stuck in the house all day.
Jeremy's mom came for a visit the week of Thanksgiving, it was really nice to have some family "re-meet" Sidney. It was like seeing him for the first time...he's so different than when she saw him when he was just born. Granny Stevens had a chance to have some special moments with her first grandchild.
