It’s official, I’m a stay ay home Mom. I emailed my letter of resignation in on Tuesday. I still have to turn in my keys and pick up the rest of my crap which I’ll probably do next week. I am so happy. Money is going to be a little tight but it shouldn’t be too bad. It will all be worth it though. I can’t imagine leaving Lily with someone else all day. It might be different if we had some family to take care of her, but we don’t.
So the doctor finally called me back 3/4/09 and said that he was very happy with Lily’s weight gain and when I asked if we should increase the amount of formula he said that wasn’t necessary. Yippie. The less formula we give her the happier I am. He also said to get her weighed again in 2 or 3 weeks to make sure she’s still gaining.
Oh and he told me she’s in the 1 to 2 percentile for her weight, when we were there for the 2 month check up she was in the 3-4 for length and 9-10 for head size.
We just have a very tiny girl. She’s 10 1/2 weeks old and still wearing newborn size clothing. This is all fine with me, I’m in no hurry for her to grow up.
I took Lily to the doctor’s office to get weighed today. 8 lbs 3 oz. That’s a 5 ounce increase in 11 days. We have been giving Lily 2 to 3 ounces of formula every day. We are going to increase that to 3 to 4 ounces a day probably. I’m still waiting on the doctor’s call to see if we need to do anything else. Also my favorite nurse is going to check with a couple of people to get suggestions on fattening up my milk.
Some random pictures and more info.
Last night Lily had her first ever scream-free bath. (This is a picture from a couple of weeks ago). It was great. She and I took the bath together and I made the water a slight bit warmer then I used to use. I don’t know if these things made the difference or she is just growing up. Whatever it was I hope it keeps up.
