The heart to heart boxes are arriving and many of them are stuffed with love for Sammi.
Tiff sent this gorgeous doll quilt for her doll quilt wall, made with lavender and green reproduction prints! Love it.
It's already hanging above her little doll bed. :-) Thank you Tiff!
Sammi has had to go be weighed every.single.week at the ped because she is not gaining weight. Apparently most babies gain one ounce per day and our little spitfire is only gaining 1/2 an ounce PER WEEK. She is still 5 ounces down from her birth weight.
We have another appointment on Weds (which we will likely miss to due to a huge winter storm that should be barrelling down on us by Weds), so I have been giving her formula every single time I feed her. Even if she already seems satisfied with breast milk. And I have been waking her to eat every 2 hours.
All of which goes against my usual "feed on demand" philosophy.
And yet, the baby still does not look fatter to me. She still has that very lean newborn look to her arms and legs. And I am (more than) terrified that she is going to be labeled "failure to thrive".
Maybe if we all think "fat baby, fat baby" thoughts she will pass her test this week?
A mother can hope, can't she?
