This morning I fed Morgan Kate and played with her for quite some time. After about an hour and a half she started to get fussy. I picked her up and rocked her for just a second and she fell asleep. I then placed her in her crib and proceeded to leave the room. The crying began. However, I let her cry for just a few minutes and she fell fast asleep and slept for almost two hours. She was much more content this afternoon. Happy baby and happy mommy. We didn't get to work on our afternoon nap because we had a doctor's appointment. But I am not worried about it. Like I said, I prefer to take things one step at a time.
Speaking of doctor's appointment. We went to see Dr. G and had a terrific appointment. Morgan Kate weighed in at ten and a half pounds. Wow! She has not quite hit the growth chart for her age, but she is ever so close to it. Matter of fact we have never been this close to actually getting on the chart. Great progress! Dr. G was very pleased with how she looked and sounded. We are going to start slowly weaning MK from several of her medications and she how she reacts. Less is always better in the medication department. We have some stretches and exercises to work on with Morgan Kate and we are to return in two weeks.
Also, some good news on the feeding front. Morgan Kate is now taking almost three ounces every four hours. She is doing a great job! There are times when she seems a little hesitant to start, but once we get going she does great.
Next Tuesday (Morgan Kate's 6 month birthday) we have a follow-up appointment with her gastro doctor.
