Call CPS...

First Tim leaves him covered on the couch, and tonight I forgot to strap him in his swing. Poor, poor baby! His little feet were dangling over the seat end. Note to self...strap baby in.

Thankfully, the Lord protected him again!:-)

Just thought I'd update about his last appt. It was a week ago on the 2nd (just a day shy of his turning 4 months old). He weighed in at 9# 12 oz...a seemingly amazing 7 pound gain from his birth weight. Not many babies have trippled their birth weight at 4 months...I mean can you imagine your 4 month old weighing over 20 pounds? (ok, maybe my sister in law Les could) :~P

His length was 20 1/2 inches. He was 14 1/4 at birth so great strides are being made there too, even if he is just in newborn size clothes (with the sleeves rolled up;-). He's actually a little tub if you look at the weight for height growth charts. He is in the 90% percentile!!!

But, for his age (even corrected to 2 months) he hasn't quite reached the lowest percentile on the weight and length for age charts. I was encouraged though that if he has nothing genetically wrong, there are options in the future to help him along.

Nonetheless...I don't care. He's so amazingly sweet and precious to me. His smiles melt my heart and warm my soul. I am enjoying him so much...even more than my first two. I think it's also a maturity thing. There are so many stressors as a first time mom, etc. But now, I'm quite laid back and relaxed (at least for me).

I feel back to normal again too...well, my normal anyway;-)

I am heading to Indy on the 17th to see geneticists and other bone dysplasia specialists to see if we can get a diagnosis...I don't care anymore whatever may be. I just think it is wise to know as much as we can so that we proceed thru his infancy, etc properly. It will be a long day but I am excited about it. My sister Heather is going with me so, I'm quite excited to spend the time with her.

I guess that's all for now. Blessings to you!
