McKay made his first visit to the pediatrician's office yesterday and weighed in at an impressive 7 lbs 4 oz. The doctor was more than impressed that he had been able to maintain weight. I am so glad eating did not become the sticking point for McKay that it is for so many heart babies. We will go in for weekly weigh ins for the next little while to make sure he's maintaining his energy for and interest in eating. Honestly, he's got good genes for that sort of thing so we don't expect it to become a problem :).
McKay is teaching us to live in and appreciate the present. So although two weeks is an odd milestone to celebrate, we'll use any excuse to be thankful for our time with him. Many thanks and hugs to you that have showered us with support. You give us many reasons to celebrate as well.
