Wow, 4 months old! I can't believe it's been 4 months already! On Friday, Kane had his check-up and vaccinations. He was 11lbs. 9oz. and 25 1/2'' long. This height and weight would now put him in only the 8th percentile. Of course we couldn't understand why our happy healthy boy wasn't growing like we thought he should be, especially he's been eating 6oz. of expressed breast milk or formula (we've started supplementing since my milk production can't keep up with his intake) every 3 hours, which with his sleep habits winds up being 5 bottles per day. Dr. Wiley said that since he is spitting up, he may have reflux, and since he's so active he may be metabolizing too quickly. But we just have to remember that all babies are different and our little guy just needs a little tweeking! Kane's now on a reflux med. to see if that makes any difference and she wants us to increase him to 7oz. and to 6 feedings per day. Hopefully this will get him to at least 13lbs. by his weight check at 5 months. We've also started him with the rice-cereal, it's more out than in right now, but he doesn't seem to like the taste at all! Hopefully he'll warm up to it in the coming weeks.
Today we had Kane's Baptism. Beth, Peter and Cito (God Father) all came down from MD and spent the night with us and joined us this morning. We had many family members in attendance to support us. It was a lovely service and there was a soloist (Lori Wold) who sang a beautiful song for our little man. Afterward we had a great lunch with everyone at Gummie's house!
Here are some pictures from the weekend and the baptism! Enjoy!
