We got a growth report on Peanut and he put on an entire Kg in 1 month! That is a whopping 25% increase in body weight! His current weight, as of yesterday, is 4.05 Kg or 8 pounds 9 ounces. Some of his increase was in the inch he added to his length and the .5 cm to his head circumference so I am not certain if he is adding some chub to those long skinny legs from his referral photo just yet.
No new pictures, but I am at least glad to hear our little one is getting enough to eat!
A side note of luck and chance….A friend that we made through this process just received a referral for a little boy who is about Peanut’s same age (2 weeks younger) and size. Chances are good that our little guys are hanging out together in Addis. It is such a gift that they will be able to share that bond now and throughout their lives, and that their mommies will have some time to unwind together during play dates!
