Well, it seems that Matthew really loves his Mommy milk and it loves him, too!
I took him to the pediatrician this morning for a recheck. He weighed a whopping 12 pounds, 6 ounces! Just one month ago he weighed 9 pounds, 7 1/2 ounces. I couldn't believe he had gained three pounds in the last month! I was actually worried that he wasn't getting enough because he is going such long stretches at night. Needless to say, that is NOT the case!
The doctor was extremely pleased with his weight gain, his muscle tone, his color, his strength and everything in general. It was indeed a great visit, except for the fact that Dr. E wasn't too happy with me for postponing Matthew's MRI. My insurance company wanted to refuse payment, and in order for it to be approved, Dr. E had to call and speak to the physician on the medical review board at the insurance company.
Now we have to get the approval extended or a whole new approval for the procedure. I have rescheduled it for Wednesday, November 24th. Gib and the girls will be out of school which will be a blessing. None of us will want to get up so early to make it there for a 7 am check-in, but at least I don't have to go by myself or worry about childcare!
Just a quick hello and update on sweet baby boy. He's waking up and will be ready to chow down for sure! :)
