2 week appointment results

We had our 2 week check-up today and here are Mr. Brody's stats:
Weight:  8 pounds 8.5 ounces (37%tile)  gained 7.5 ounces since birth
Height:  21.5 inches (71%tile) grown 1 inch since birth

Our little man checked out nicely, except for the doctor said he heard a slight heart murmur.  Doesn't think we should be concerned since he had to "strain" to hear it, it was so faint and he did not hear it 2 weeks ago, but will have it checked out regardless.  How can you not be a little concerned with the news?  I am trying not to freak out and wait until we talk to a pediatric cardiologist before I make any assumptions.
Here is what our house looks like as of today.  They are almost done with the brick/stone...just have to finish the front part that is missing in the picture.  The walls are painted, wood floors are in (not scraped or stained though), cabinets are in, doors are in and painted, stained concrete just needs to be sealed...We cannot believe how fast this is all happening.  I am thinking it is a good thing that we are far enough away from the house so we don't drive by on a daily basis.  Every time we get out that way, it seems like so much more is done.  We are extremely impressed with the quality of work Darling has done so far.  Gabe and I are really looking forward to moving into our new home come June!

Gabe's dad is flying in from LA this weekend to meet our little prince. We have not seen him since our trip out to Chicago in September. Looking forward to a family-filled weekend!

How fun! I used to love going to check ups to see all the stats! Well, I still do! I am sure the murmur is nothing and your doctor is just being very thorough, which is good, especially this early on. Let us know what happens. And your house is gorgeous! Hand scraped wood my dreams!
