Onto other news...Matt and I took the boys in to the pediatrician today and had them checked out. To my joy, both of them are in tip top health, taking into consideration Asher's previous 2 months, even he was in good shape except for his weight. Poor baby is in the 5th percentile for weight, meaning that 95% of babies his age weigh more than he does right now. His height is in the 50th percentile though which is nice to see that he is still growing well despite his rocky start. I'm still looking for another solution to help his weight gain, other than the addition of dry formula to my breastmilk to boost the caloric intake. I hate having to place nasty, hormone and steroid ridden cow's milk formula into my pure breastmilk. It's like throwing a mud pie into a fresh drinking water source...you just don't do that!! So, if anyone has any knowledge on this subject, I would love to hear back from you. I'm leaning towards just mixing in a little flaxseed oil to the breast milk to boost the good fats, but want to find more info on that first.
Now, I'm going to leave you with a picture from the Monday night prayer meeting at the Garden Gate.
This was taken, without me knowing, from across the room during worship. Matt is in the lower left hand corner, leading worship with his guitar, and I'm standing in the doorway with my little man in a green baby sling. Side note, Asher loved being in that sling so much that he slept for 3 hours straight....I think he was feeling like he had returned to the womb! ;)
Well, that's all for now. Gotta Get back to sleep, Asher's feed is almost finished and I'm still really tired!
