Rolling Over!

Today Eirik had a visit at the Neonatal Followup Clinic at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital here in Tacoma. Eirik had a busy morning and got to meet with a physical therapist, social worker, occupational therapist, nurse and nurse practitioner. Of course our little guy was a total flirt around the ladies and was as cute as could be.

Here's what we found out:

  • Eirik weighs 12 pounds, 5 ounces. He's a little more that 2-1/2 times his birth weight.
  • He's 23.75 inches long, so wee-man is 5 inches taller than his birth height.
  • Eirik has no developmental delays
  • He is in excellent health
While the physical therapist was evaluating him, she got him to roll over from his tummy to his back assisted. A little while later, he figured out how to do it on his own and did it a couple of times for us! It was so cool!

Of course we had to show Otis when we got home, and then Kelly got out her phone camera so all of our loyal readers can enjoy the show, too.

We're just tickled that Eirik is doing so well and that he continues to amaze and delight us on a daily basis.
