2 Month Check-up

Baby Tess got all A's on her two month check-up. She was in the 29% percentage of height/weight for her age when she left the NICU. A mere four weeks later she's in 86% for height and 75% for weight. Grow baby grow!

She's having some bad acid reflux, which I hear is a pretty common complaint for post-NICU babies. We just switched her back to the "strong stuff" for reflux medicine. Hopefully, that will translated into more sleep at night.

St. Peter of Alcatara, a master of penance, only slept three hours a night with a wooden beam as his pillow. It's pretty bad when Jon and I could claim to match his feats on most nights during this past week. Praise God for the supernatural gift of cheerfulness to the involuntarily sleep deprived!

  2. What great news - grow, baby, grow indeed!

    Isn't that sleep deprived cheerfulness a blessing? What I find fascinating about it is how well I can just almost float through the day and keep the bare minimum going, so long as I'm not overly taxed. But it is funny what I find overly taxing - my daughter's double digit multiplication becomes so much more challenging to correct and her Latin worksheet is just about impossible without the answer key. But at least I can still cook dinner and drive the car (although driving in such a state does make me a little nervous...)

    God bless you and your family, and I hope the medication helps soon!
