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!
