Hurry Home, Lilly!

Morgan is happy because he just found out that his future friend Lilly is coming home from Vietnam! Congratulations to my friend Kristin for getting her approval to go get her beautiful baby girl!
In other happy news, our handsome little man gained a WHOLE POUND at his last weigh in. This saved us from weekly weight checks….which is awesome because even though we like to visit Daddy at the hospital, the trip is 22 miles one way….not fun when you don’t like your car seat.
Our little guy is thriving in more ways than one. He is so ready to walk! He is also eating like a champ–black beans and brown rice, french toast, sweet potato pancakes–thanks for all of the suggestions! Even Dietitians can go into panic mode when it’s their own kid that’s losing weight.
The naps are starting to stabilize–this morning he took his 9am bottle and fell asleep on the pallet in the living room. We’ve moved from my being right beside him on the pallet, to sitting next to him so that he can hold my hand, to sitting in a chair a foot away so that he can see me. I’m very proud of his progress!

    Thanks, Jen! That is such a cute picture of Morgan – It almost makes me think that he actually told you how excited he is to meet Lilly, and asked that you take his picture to post on the blog to show just how excited he is. I’m sure that’s exactly what happened. 🙂

    I’m so glad he’s gaining some weight! I love those ideas, too…Keep gaining, Morgan!!!
