BG3 was feeling much better this week. Her first cold came and passed with some bad days, of course, but overall, it wasn’t too bad. My heart definitely broke for her at times, but she’s a champ and now as feisty as ever. Although, for some reason, she hasn’t been sleeping as well as she has since getting sick. She’s not sick anymore and no stuffy nose or anything, only an occasional cough, so it just makes me wonder why she can’t sleep well at night anymore.
Anyways, we went to the pediatrician on Friday and she’s weighing in at 13lbs now. She seems to be gaining about a pound a month and as much as I wish it were more, I guess I should just be happy that she’s gaining weight. My niece actually went through the same thing, hardly eating only gaining a pound a month. She’s fine now, although still a tough eater, but healthy I guess. I’m hoping things will change for BG3 once she starts eating solid foods. I’ve stopped counting specific ounces per each feeding. I still pay attention, but I try not to drive myself crazy about it anymore. I do know she averages five 4oz bottles a day, some days more, some days less. Here’s hoping her intake increases.
She has reached another milestone in her life – she’s rolling over! It was so crazy, one morning I put her on the bed and next thing I know, she flops over! Way to give me a heart attack, lol. Luckily she wasn’t near the edge or anything. But yeah, we’ve definitely been paying more attention to her when we place her on the bed or in the swing. She’s also been flailing a lot more lately, kicking her legs like a maniac. Bathtime leaves me pretty soaked in the end with all the splashing she does. It’s cute though.
Looks like her days of being “a lump” are over. You know once they start moving around it only gets more progressive from there.
Seriously though, her facial expressions crack me up. I love her!
