Elias had his 2 month check up, finally today. He weighed in at 12 lbs and 22 inches long. He jumped from the 10th percentile to the 50th for weight (since his 2 week check up) but his height has stayed in the 10th percentile. We’ll see if he gets as tall as his dad, or doesn’t make it to 5 feet…like my Uncle Si. These are unadjusted numbers, meaning he’s being compared to other 2 month olds, although he should be only 1 month old…had he not come so early. He also got his first rounds of shots today. I’d say he’s handling them quite well, although he seems a little fussy tonight.
I finally finished his new set of diapers, which are one sized. That means they can be adjusted not only around his waist, but lengthwise as well. I got this pattern from one of the Divas on the Diaper sewing board. She owns a diaper pattern company called Little Comet Tails, and this is her “little one sized” diaper. I made them out of flannel, with fun patterns on the outside, and either light blue or brown on the inside; whatever matched the best. The soaker fabric on the inside is microfiber terry. It’s usually pretty expensive ($15/yard), but some Divas said that you can sometimes find really cheap microfiber terry on clearance in the automotive section of Walmart. A few months ago I checked and picked up a bunch that ended up being cheaper than the flannel! (only about $2/yd) This set of diapers should get him through toddlerhood…so you probably won’t have to put up with me posting diapers I’ve sewn for awhile!
