We had our 2 month appointment a little bit late. At 10 weeks, Waylon weighted 12lbs 12oz. I can't for the life of me remember how long he was
. Shame on me. Haylee STILL isn't growing, and this time the pediatrician told us we need to cut out fruits and veggies and replace them with more calorie-dense foods
. I don't know why I even go. Developmentally she is way ahead, but the poor little thing is so far below the charts! Of course, it always makes me feel guilty for writing the things I have written about her. She is just so challenging to me.
I also had a followup for the mirena, and the midwife and I are both on the watch bigtime for PPD. I am so irritable and anxious and sad, all the time. This is how it started with Haylee too, around the same time. I am positive its a result of the hormones from the mirena, and looking back, it happened last time right around the time I started on the pill. I just don't know what the heck else to do about birthcontrol, if hormones are out of the question.
I also have hesitated to say anything about Waylon's sleep, because I didn't want to jinx myself, but he has been sleeping for a 4+ hour stretch on a regular basis. We have even had one 8 hour stretch the other night. He then wakes up between 2 and 4 more times before he is up for the day. I don't know what to do about naps, because he is such a dozer--20-30 minutes is all we get most days, but then every 4th or 5th day he will binge on sleep and sleep all afternoon, waking a couple times to nurse. I feel sometimes like I spend all day getting him to sleep. I am really excited about the nighttimes though, because Haylee literally has only ever slept longer than 5 hours a few times in her entire life!
I am back to work parttime now, but I really need to never go back fulltime. I just can't do it, and I dread going at all. The days I do work are hell. I keep Waylon with me, but Haylee is so cranky after a day at the sitter. Her tantrums really seem to upset Waylon and then he's fussy. I don't know if he senses her tension or mine, but the poor little thing is very sensitive to other's moods.
I love all the pictures!
