February 6th 2014 - The One Month Mark
Today my little man is one month old. People always told me that time with my baby would fly by and I got so caught up in hating postpartum stress and side effects that I didn't really pay attention. It really has just flown by!! (it's a little bitter sweet). He is weighing 8 Pounds 11 Ounces and is 22 inches long, and my arm is killing me from holding this growing baby. This past month Baby Fisher has learned how to lift his head, hold it, and turn from side to side (he also looks like a bobble head but that's alright, its really cute). He has lost weight and gained weight, he's also been taken off of breast milk and put on formula due to low milk supply. We went to the doctor for his 2nd week appointment and he went from 7 lbs. 10 Oz. (birth weight) to 7 lbs. 1 Oz (week one) to 6 lbs. 11 Oz. (week 2). I was terrified and found out that his long bouts of screaming fits were possibly due to him being hungry. I felt so bad that I didn't know he was hungry, I really felt like a bad mother. We put him on formula and came in for a weight check two days later and he had gained 6 Oz. I was relived that he was gaining weight and he looked so much healthier. Now with him up to 8 Lbs. 11 Oz. I'm no longer worried about his weight gain (plus his cheeks wiggle when I burp him, Ha!). Fisher has also learned how to smile, although its mostly during his sleep, he has surprised me with a sweet little smile back at me a few times. I am really looking forward to this next month, its going to be so much fun to watch him discover things and learn!! Also we have been battling gas problems and possible colic. If any of you guys have any advice or have been through this before please leave me a comment!
Have a Great Day!
