I know it’s cliche and I say this every week, but almost 3 months! Â Wow! Â Time is flying by and I want it to stop. Â This week was pretty similar to the last. Â You are still smiling a ton and yet again, getting stronger.
You are still continuing to grow and develop at rapid speed. Â I had a midwives appointment in the building right next to your pediatrician office, so I went in and weighed you and it was a whopping 12 lbs 15.5 ounces. Â You are gaining about 0.5-1 ounce per day, which is right on track. Â You are also continuing to look longer daily I think.
My friend Laura came to visit us this weekend. Â We had a Memorial Day weekend BBQ at our house with Ashley, Keith, Laura and our family on Saturday night and you refused to go to sleep – you thought you might miss something. Â Sleep has been average this week. Â Some nights you were waking up every 2 hours or so and others you would sleep for about 4 hours straight for one stretch in the night. Â You are getting better at putting yourself back to sleep. Â You are sleeping in your rock and play for some of the night and next to me for the rest. Â We did determine that you are getting too long for the rock and play, so we need to transition you to the pack and play ASAP. Â I think we are doing pretty well on that front.
I had a weird thing happen to me this week. Â I developed a lump in my breast and was obviously freaking out for a couple of days. Â I researched online for what it could be and I knew in my mind that it was okay, but the thought of cancer still lingered in the back of my mind and was panicking to me. Â It didnâ€™t hurt and wasnâ€™t really tender and it also didnâ€™t change based on nursing which was the most concerning symptom to me. Â It felt pretty hard to me and I couldnâ€™t really tell if it moved very much. Â I went to the midwife and she thought it was just a milk duct but referred me to the Rose Breast Center for an ultrasound just to be sure. Â I was sweating all day until the next day when I went and it turned out to be a benign cyst filled with milk aka a galactocele. Â They are harmless and generally donâ€™t go away until breastfeeding ceases. Â I felt like 100 lbs. was lifted off my shoulders! Â Thank God.
Other than that we are still trying to get in a routine and conduct our life as usual! Â I love our time together!
