A Happy Doctor Update

Apparently Connor's weight was actually lower than I had originally thought. It was between the 3rd and 5th percentile, which is considered Failure to Thrive.

At this appointment, however, we received happy news. He went up from 8 lbs 13 oz to 9 lbs 4 oz, which created an increase of about 8 ounces in 7 days. Although we're not out of the woods yet (we're still in the 5th percentile), because he gained so much weight, we can rest for another week. We need to go back next Thursday again to check the progress and re-evaluate what we need to do. But the pediatrician said his color had improved and he looked a LOT better!

Unfortunately for Mommy, we still have to wake him every 1.5-3 hours to feed, which will be interesting while working full time. I may just have to take it even easier at work than I have been to make it through the day without exhaustion...not that I'm complaining. I would do this for a million years to have a healthy, happy baby.

Mason had trouble gaining at first and then once he got going there was no stopping him. The pediatrician even said at one of his well baby check ups, "And to think we thought he was "Failure to Thrive".

Here's to tipping the scales Connor. I know you can do it. Help out your mommy and gain some weight so she can get some rest. We love you guys.
