It’s normal for babies to lose weight after they’re born. And sure enough, when Alex was weighed last Wednesday, he was down to 9 pounds 3 ounces.
What’s not normal is to get past birth weight so quickly. Alex had his first visit to the pediatrician last week. New weight? 10 pounds 7 ounces.
At this rate, he’ll be 6’4, 240 pounds and playing for the Seahawks on his third birthday.
