He is 16 pounds, 8 ounces (70%ile) and 26.5 inches (90%ile) with a head circumference of 44.9 cm.
We discussed his eczema and we are now trying a new product. California Baby- eczema version. It's pretty pricey, so I'm hoping it works! I asked how likely it was that Gavin would have food allergies since he has pretty bad eczema. Dr. Scott stated they tend to see eczema, reflux, and food allergies as a package deal. With that said, we will wait until 6 months to discuss starting foods. I'm okay with this for a lot of reasons- let his gut mature more, the AAP recommends waiting until 6 months, he should be able to lateralize his tongue (feeding development), etc. He is showing a lot more interest in the food we are eating which is a great sign. He will be our "baby led weaning" child.

He got his vaccines, cried for a minute, then went to sleep. Carl said he was a little clingy for an hour or two after, but then was back to normal.
While on the subject of Gavin.... he had his first The Little Gym class on Saturday. He seemed to really enjoy it! He loved the stretches and the shakers and
We also went to the beach Sunday. He continues to not be a fan.
