I had my first visit from the CLSC clinic today. They will be doing periodic check-ups on me to make sure that I'm in good health, and that mommy and daddy are taking good care of me, which they are, of course! Every day they make sure I have fresh sawdust in my cage and big bowl of apple peels to munch on. Kidding!
So the big news is that I'm now 2600 grams! That's about 5.75 pounds for you non-metric types. And everything else seems to be running smoothly. Mommy is convinced that I take after daddy when it comes to my behaviour. I sleep a lot, fuss only when I'm hungry or gassy, and I love to be social. I heard that when mommy was a baby she cried so much that her next door neighbour had to move out! That is one powerful baby!
And it looks like good news south of the equator as well. My buddy Augusto has hit 1800 grams, which is one of three requirements he needs in order to be discharged. Keep up the good work! Here's me cheering for you:
