We went to the pediatrician this morning. Silas is "thriving" and she expects no problems to come back from his labs. Thank You Lord! Silas is healthy and very happy.
He gained over a pound this last week! Now he's 14.5 lbs. We could tell he had gained and he's eating more and sleeping better.
Last night he went to sleep around 9 pm...I woke him up at 1 am and gave him a bottle. He stirred a little at 3 am, but slept through until 7 this morning. Hallelujah! Now, I haven't been a Mom very long, but I know enough to know that the victorious night we had last night does not guarantee victory tonight. Regardless, that sweet smile is sweet even at 3 am. I think what has helped even more than the rice cereal has been the swaddle....he feels more secure that way.
These pictures were taken yesterday. Silas' buddy Lochlan is 8 weeks old and weighs about 13 pounds. We wanted to see them side by side...Silas lit up when he had a baby laying next to him and grabbed onto Lochlan's overalls. Today is Lochlan's mum's birthday...Happy Birthday, Lisa!
