Newest weight

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

IC’s RSV shot went well last week. He weighs 12 lb 13oz so he is still on the small side but growing steadily. Only two more of these nasty shots to go before RSV season is over. Yeah!

IC Loves his oatmeal. Well he at least loves the spoon. He can hardly wait until I put the spoon near his face so he can grab it and put it in his mouth. It is very funny to watch.

We went to visit the Physical Therapist last week.  IC is officially 4 1/2 months old (last week) and so he was thoroughly evaluated.  He has a few weak muscles but for the most part he is right where he needs to be.  She saw no reason for concern and gave us a few exercises to do to bring the trouble areas up to speed.  That said, the PT saw no reason that he needed any further evaluation and sent us happily on our way.  IC is very rolly polly now but he still does not enjoy his tummy time. When put on a blanket in the living room floor he quickly rolls from one side to the other and beyond.  Needless to say he is very excited about his newfound freedom and squeals when he reaches a new object…ie the couch, chair, dog.  Our poor dog doesn’t even know what is about to hit her.  Two children chasing her at once is going to be interesting. 

    The first real sickness of the year has hit our house.  Mommy and OD have picked up some sort of cold.  It is the typical runny/stuffy nose, cough and sore throat.  No fever so there is little concern that it might be RSV.  So because of this Mommy has been on hyper mode for disinfecting and sanitizing everything possible. 

    This week is also the beginning of spoon fed cereal for IC!  It is a very exciting milestone.  He is sitting up a little better but still needs some support and he has been very curious about what we are eating so he seems to be ready.  We will start with oatmeal instead of Rice cereal because he already gets rice cereal in most of his bottles. Nothing else new to report but we will get an accurate weight check on Friday and I will post the results then.
