Weekly Weigh-In

Sorry to start back with a lame weight check post, but it's Wednesday, after all!  I'll try to get something with pictures up later.  But here are this week's stats:

Two weeks ago: 9.0 kg (19 pounds, 13 ounces), 32.5 inches
This week: 8.95 kg (19 pounds, 12 ounces), 31.5 inches
Two weeks' change: -50 grams (1 ounce), - 1 inch
Net change:  +1250 grams (37 ounces), +2.5 inches 

And that puts us right where we were on November 17th.  No gain in 7 weeks.  If only we could keep her from vomiting...I'm really starting to wonder if we should have done the nissen surgery that would prevent her from throwing up.  The doctor didn't think it was necessary, but, like I've said before, he's never actually seen the massive pile of puke.

Becca got a baby doll from Santa, and today she made her baby throw up.  Good pretend play, but I sure wish "doh dup" wasn't so embedded in her psyche.

(On the upside, though, Becca has just about kicked the cold she picked up travelling, and she actually signed and said "eat," walked over to her high chair and said, "Yeah, yeah," which roughly translates as, "Please do whatever it is that I am asking you to do, right now, please." (She's quite the combination of stubborn and polite, little stinker.)  That's a good sign!)

  1. Hi Nancy!
    I don't know if you'll remember me, but I'm Courtney Jones, married to Lee of Northside heritage :) I discovered your blog through Facebook friends, and just got caught up on what you guys have been up to. Wow. Becca is adorable by the way.
    So this is fortuitous timing as I was just trying to think of a contact in the Nashville area who might have some connection to the pediatric medical world. I would say it is an understatement that you fit the bill. Basically, our 1 year old (Logan) needs to have bowel surgery and we are investigating our options. We are in Savannah now, but it looks like the procedures at Vandy might be more appealing. I was just wondering if you have any recommendations for gastric/general surgeons. Sorry for the long comment, I wasn't sure how else to contact you. Lee sends his greetings to both you and John!

    P.S. I am actually a pediatric physical therapist. I would love to pick your brain sometime about being on the other side of therapy. You know, home programs etc. I am sure I could learn a lot from you!
