AWWW.... Charlie is like- Mom get me away from this crying baby!
This has nothing to do with our trip to see Charlie and his rents- this was just a cute pic I took of Kayla being peaceful in her swing! :)
So today was our first trip back to Syracuse. We had a follow up appt that was apparently a mistake. The docs did an EKG on Kayla and checked her lungs and heart rate- they couldn't understand why they brought her in for this... as the note from the NICU said that she did not need a follow up. Jerry and I still didn't mind as we like the reassurance we get from the docs.
Kayla weighs 10lbs 4oz now- they weighed her with a new dry diaper - but that isn't how they usually do it- and she weighed 10lbs 6oz.. so Jerry and I took two oz off. She'll get weighed again on Friday from the lady who comes to my house to check Kayla... hopefully she will still show weight gain.
The docs said Kayla sounded great- Jerry and I were very pleased to hear this.
Lately- Kayla has this new thing she does- it's so not cute! :) She will be so content in your arms- after a good NORMAL cry- she'll get her binky in and act like she is about to fall asleep- and just when you stop starring at her- she goes BALISTIC! She throws her arms around, straightens her legs so stiff- and there is no soothing her- she goes NUTS! Her cry makes you want to cry because you have no idea what she needs now- you know it's not hunger, or her diaper- she had her binky in her mouth- so you know it's not that she just wants that- it's soo weird! So we put her in her vibrating chair and wrap her up tight- and then she'll take her binky and face her towards the TV and then be completely fine- SO WEIRD! The cry FREAKS me right out- but she eventually calms down- no idea why- and I don't really want her watching TV- I heard they can develop ADD from it- and she just loves the lights- so Jerry and I bought her baby einstein video for 3 +mo. and hope she'll at least get something out of it... if anyone has any ideas of how to calm her when she goes nuts- feel free to share! :)
Today we got to visit Charlie and his mother- unfortunately his father had to work- so we didn't get to see him- but we were so happy to see how well Charlie was doing. He is so BIG! He looks huge compared to Kayla- I couldn't believe it! He is sooo darn cute too- he def. has a manly cry! haha it's adorable! I also finally got pics of the two together where neither are crying- but they aren't too good at looking at the camera- haha! Charlie is doing great- he brings his hands together, holds his head up with ease, and eats like a freakin pro! I couldn't believe it- he sucked his bottle down in minutes! So Charlies parents- we can't wait to see all three of u.. Patty- thanks for lunch and letting us invite ourselves over! :) haha
