Another day in the life of Brady Joseph
Brady had his weight check yesterday... he was 13 pounds. If he gained 1/3 an ounce a day since his last visit 29 days ago, he should have weighed in at 13 pounds, 5 ounces. Ugh.
But, like I told his doc, who told me "Kerry, you always have a reason" (haha) he gave up his baby food for two weeks when the temps were in the 90s here. He had more of his bottle during that timeframe, but did NOT want the food. I know it is common for babies to not eat in the heat, and the doctor gave Brady a pass, but now she wants to see us in three weeks instead of four. I am thinking of slipping in some protein bars and shakes inbetween his oatmeal and prunes. :)
When Brady's speech therapist came over yesterday, she did massage his gums and inner cheeks with the baby-toothbrush-thingy-on-a-finger. I guess it either is or is like the Nuk brush recommended to me from other moms. Brady was very patient with Vicki and let her do it for quite awhile. Lisa, his PT, also noticed he did a smirky-smiley-thing when she tickled him in his belly and ribs. SO close to that smile! I have hope now.
