Look what I can do!

Now that we've all seen a video of Carter having a blast I suppose I should talk about his Doctor's appointment even though I don't want to. We went yesterday thinking that he must have gained weight since the medicine was helping and he wasn't spitting up as much. Not the case. He actually lost about 6 more oz. He now weighs the same as he did when he was 2 months old. He's 5 months. To say that I'm worried would be an understatement. I'm terrified and I feel helpless. By the doctor's request we started giving him rice cereal last night and I'm giving him bottles more now. I'm getting ready to just nurse him at nap time and bed time since I feel like it's not doing much for him. I really just don't think I am making enough milk. He's been sleeping through the night fine and he smiles a good amount, but since he's lost so much muscle he hasn't been rolling as much or anything like that. We have an appointment in 2 weeks and until then I will be giving him rice cereal, as many bottles as he will eat AND nursing him. I need to fatten him up somehow.

I love that video. It's so cute. He is a happy baby and he loves life so that is good. Keep being the good parents you are, follow the Dr.s advice, and the weight and strength will come. The Lord will bless your efforts and your family will pray for Carter and all of you. Before long he will be big, strong, healthy, and full of mischief.
