Hmm…. How can I figure out how much Davis weighs? He is pooping and peeing just fine which are indicators that he is getting enough to eat. He is also getting the beginnings of fat rolls. ok, so calling them fat rolls is a stretch, but he is filling out and not so totally scrawny. Oooo, I got an idea! We have a postal scale that he will definitely not fit on, but if I place a cookie sheet on top and stay near to make sure he does not roll off I bet we could get his weight…

Well, it worked. We determined the baby’s weight after much fiddling and experimenting on how to weigh just the baby, not the cookie sheet, onsie, and diaper too.

And the verdict?

He now weighs 8lb at 4 weeks and one day old. Hurray! He was reached the birth weight of his brothers. He is growing just fabulously! And his due date is still a week and a half away. What would he have weighed at full term? I shudder to think about it!
