Video of Hink's 3rd month

We spent pretty much all of Hink's third month in the US visiting/meeting family and playing a lot! Nick made another video to share them all like he did for Hink's first month. I just realized we never posted the second month video so I will work on finding that for the 3 people who are probably interested.

And another cute video Nick made awhile back:

Hink at 3 months

We are back in China after a whole month of fun in the US. We have lots of pictures to share, but we will get to that later in another post. Hink had a doctors appointment this week and I cannot believe how much he has grown!

Height: 58.5 cm (23 inches)
Weight 4.7 kilos (10 pounds 5 ounces)
Head 39.5 cm (15.5 inches)

He looks more and more like a normal (non-preemie) baby everyday. I just stopped having random strangers commenting on how small he is and thinking he is brand new. He is definitely working hard to catch up. He grew 5 more centimeters this month. He is in the 3rd percentile for height, but last month he didn't even make the chart, so we are making progress. The doctor thinks that by his first birthday he will be mostly caught up.

This month was a fun one. Hink started focusing on people more and more and has started smiling a lot. He is much more fun to play with now that I can get a reaction out of him. He did have a little bit of stranger anxiety when we got back to Beijing and he didn't recognize anything, but he's over that now. As far as jet lag, he is doing ok but he does sleep about 18 hours a day now. I'm sure it will be harder next time around when he doesn't sleep so much during the day.
