What a week. Last week started out great. We were supposed to bless Mallie on Sunday, so I was just cleaning & doing the bajillion projects on I had on my list before the blessing. Wednesday night, Hollie started getting really sick. By Friday, she had generously passed it on to Mal & me. Mal's 4 month check up also happened to be on Friday, so we headed in to the doctor to check her out. Her cough was really raspy & had us worried. The doctor said it wasn't RSV yet, but could turn into it. All things considered, we decided to post-pone the blessing to the following Sunday. I was really disappointed, but know it was the best decision. We're all starting to feel much better & now we will be able to really enjoy Mal's special day.
During Mal's check up, we of course got her updated stats. She's 9 lbs 3 oz & 22 1/4 long. She's not even close to the charts for weight & just grazing the bottom for height. They think she's just not getting enough calories & we haven't known because she's such a happy, content baby. I'll feed her & she'll be content for 3-4 hours, so I had no idea she wasn't getting enough. She's already rolling over (much to my dismay), and just so happy & healthy. She doesn't look sickly or underweight. Anyway, they want her to put on some weight, so they're having me take 12 pills a day to help increase my milk supply. I really hope it works. If she hasn't gained by her next weight check in 2 weeks, they'll make me supplement. I really enjoy nursing & am not ready to give it up. We'll see how it goes.
And because I can't post without a picture, here's one of my little sickies watching a movie together.
