We didn’t do a photo shoot or anything this week, mostly because we have been trying to get stuff done around the house which has been overlooked, and photo shoots take too long…and Coraline never performs. Next week, I promise.
We also don’t have a tons of new news. But we do have some:
- She only gained two ounces last week. LAME! The pulmonologist wants to see about 5 ounces a week. Ugh. I have been working on ways to get her to eat more and I think I may have come up with a solution. We’ll see if it works next Friday and will report back. I am attempting to only fortify her night feedings with formula. It seems to really cause some reflux issues and she takes way more milk without the fortifier.
- She is desperate to suck on her thumb and just cannot sort herself out. So she sucks on her arms. It’s pretty cute.
- She is really fun to watch with toys these days. She is so deliberate about trying to grab them. It looks like she is concentrating SO hard.
- She has really decided to hate tummy time. It’s inconvenient because she just smashes her face into wherever she is laying till her cannula is in her mouth.
Tummy time usually starts out like this…
And quickly devolves into this….
Oh, and please note, in that top picture, her styling new ‘do. She did that herself by rubbing her head on Andrew’s facial hair…a lot.
A more thorough update will come next week…with better pics.
