2 months & Smiling:)
Well, tomorrow Addie will turn 2 months old. She is growing so fast! She had her 2 month check-up and shots today and did great! I was really worried about doing this without Scott because Addie would be getting shots. It was horrible to watch and hear her crying. She didn't cry for very long, but it was still hard. The doctor said she looks great! She weighed 11 lbs and 4 oz and was 23 and a half inches long(wonder who she gets that from?). She's in the 90 percentile for length(: She's now growing out of some clothes.
Besides progressing well, I found out that Addison probably has a touch of colic:( It's not bad, but she just hasn't been the same Addison that we've seen. Since week two, she's had some tummy issues and we've tried several things for it. She doesn't really cry that much (until the past few days), but you can tell the formula has not been good on her stomach. She eats every 3 hours during the day, but hasn't been sleeping very much~very restless and fussy. She goes about every 4-5 hours at night. This is good, but she doesn't sleep very sound. Dr. Castner said it's probably due to her stomach being upset and gassy. We believe and hope this is a very mild form of colic, and she will get better soon. It could be a lot worse! Anyway, he suggested we put her on a "colic" formula called Neutramigen...very expensive stuff! I had heard about it and hoped we wouldn't need it, but whatever works. She won't have to be on it for long. Even though she's unhappy @ times, she still manages to coo and laugh quiet a bit. I love hearing her. She definitely knows who her mommy and daddy are when we talk to her.
P.S. Just a little something that I found funny today~Have you ever had this happen to you?...You know when you're trying to explain to the doctor these things that are going on with your child? Yet, he's seeing none of these things while you're in the room with her because she's having the best day ever! He's probably thinking I'm crazy or something. Well, that's what happened today. Addison did not cry or fuss at all while being examined or while we were talking. She pretty much sat perfectly still and looked around until it was shot time. LOL
