He grows!

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Today was Max’s first pediatric physical. All looks good. He now comes with all-new morphometrics, for those who enjoy this sort of thing:

Weight: 8 pounds, 4 ounces (50th percentile)

Length: 21.5 inches (95th percentile)

(His cranial circumference was in the 75th percentile, although I didn’t catch the actual measurement.)

Max close-up, albeit blurry.

So he’s still skinny for his size, which means it’s a good thing he’s a champion eater.

Hello world!

In summary:

Maximilian Leist Magaret was born on 23 May 2008, at 9:34 a.m.

Weight: 7 pounds, 9 oz.

Length: 20 inches

He was delivered via cesarean section after approximately 18 hours of labor. Both mother and child emerged healthy, albeit confused.
The world can be a strange place when you\'ve just been forcibly removed from your mother\'s uterus.

I’m not sure where the shock of black hair came from. I’m starting to regard the UPS man with suspicion.

The name “Leist” is a family name: the maiden name of my paternal great grandmother, and Max is carrying on the tradition of my great uncle, John Leist Magaret.
