2 Months

Miss Caitlin is now 2 months old!

We went to the doctor on Monday. She grew another inch, but only gained 10 ounces. Looking at the pictures, I cannot believe it is only 10 ounces. Because of the slow weight gain the doctor is having me supplement with formula...something I really HATE. I know it is not the end of the world, but it is not what I wanted and that frustrates me. For some reason it also makes going back to work seem so much sooner...not the best of days.

Another reason this appointment was less than enjoyable? They thought Caitlin's grandfather was her father...Ewwww! Even worse? It happened more than once. I know my parents are young and look young, but STILL!!!!

Caitlin had to get four shots, so she was extra sleepy yesterday. She spent the afternoon sleeping while I held her...something Daddy does all the time, but I never do. I think we both needed it! (That and when the AC repairman came to do a tune up on the unit he left the AC on in our already cold house for an hour...we were freezing!)

Whether the scale says it or not, she is getting SO big! She laughed at Daddy on Sunday at GB & GB's house. I missed recording the date of her first smile, so I made note of the laugh! Such a happy baby!


On another note, my grandfather is having surgery today to repair an aneurysm. He has been fine, but it could have burst at any time so after a fair bit of research he decided to have the surgery. My dad flew down from Montana and drove GB & GB to Gainsville for it...they left Monday. He will be in the ICU for at least 4 days. Please add him to your prayers.

Don't worry about having to supplement! I had to do that also with Clayton because he wasn't gaining weight. He was such a happier baby once he had more food and slept so much better at night! I know that mothers guilt kicks in but you are still nursing and we gotta do what we gotta do to make those babies happy! Plus both my kids never got above the 20% for weight until they started table food. Now Morgan can start doing some middle of the night feedings :-)

I think she likes Fozzie Bear more than she likes the panda. ;) She is getting big and looking more more like you. I'm sorry you have to supplement with formula and were reminded about going back to work. :( Praying for you and your grandpa.
