What to muse about today?

Maybe she should nom on more than just Sophie?

Today was Ashlin’s six month doctor’s appointment.  She’s been a happy baby, nursing well, giggling, growing.  Finally taking bottles in day care, well, sort of anyway.  I knew she’d be getting some shots (poor baby!), but I wasn’t too worried, as she was doing better at day care, seemed to be growing, hitting milestones – sitting up, transferring objects from one hand to another, jumping.  I probably should have been though.  She’s fallen off her weight curve.  Again.

At her four month appointment she had dipped a bit off her curve, even though she had gained weight.  It was only a 1.4lb gain, enough to go from 50th percentile to 15th percentile.  In and of itself, nothing major.  She did gain, she grew, she was aware and energetic.  Happy.  Eating.


Nom nom Mum mum nom!

This time, she has gained 2lbs in 2 months.  So more than between 2 and 4 month visits.  But now she’s in the 10th percentile.  She’s still happy, still hitting milestones, still growing.  But now they want to keep a closer eye on it.  We need to go back in a few weeks for a weight check.

She did pretty well with her shots – all four! Did her Billy Idol impression and cried loudly for about a minute, then sighed, and snuggled in to me.  Although not interested in nursing there, she did once we got  home and napped.

When she woke up, she got a mum mum.  Well, two.  She really likes them :)

Played.  Nursed. Slept, with a glowing seahorse for comfort.

    Did the dr. tell you to do anything differently? More feedings more often? Are they concerned she doesn’t eat much all day and power feeds in the morning and evening? Maybe the solids will help. 4 shots..egads. My kids just got flu shots today and Thomas barely handled that!

      No, the doctor didn’t say to do anything else. Well, other than maybe have day care give a serving of solids, which I did say we were going to do, once the tongue thrust was gone, which it just barely is. She really isn’t taking in too much purees yet, anyway. Though tonight, she loved the pears :D

      She did really well for the shots. Got a bit pukey afterwards, so it wasn’t a good night – and Stu went out to get Pedialyte – but she never got a fever and seemed to get over the sour stomach quickly. It didn’t make an easy night for mama though!
