Yesterday was Carter's big check up! The nurse called us back to the room after everyone in the lobby gave Carter the googly eyes (as my nieces would say) and she weighed and measured him. He weighs 20lbs 10oz (naked!) and is 27" long. The nurse then listened to Carter's heart, and Carter put his 2 new teeth to work munching on her hand while she listened. Then after a bit of a wait, the Dr. came in. He said Carter looks great and he now has permission to eat some table foods if they are the right consistency. (Mashed potatoes, here we come!) Carter showed his approval by trying to rip off the Dr.'s glasses and trying to sample the stethoscope.
