Nadia – 12 weeks (2 weeks adjusted)

How is Nadia 12 weeks already? And I still don’t fit (well) into my jeans? And why is Nadia always either yawning or crying in photos?? I took a billion and these were the best of the worst… But the good news, a few days ago when we weighed her she was up to 8 lbs 3 oz already! It took Nora forever to get to 8 pounds, so this growing thing is new to me. In fact, I think Nadia is going to outgrow newborn size clothing soon, and she already moved to size 1 diapers. Keep in mind Nora is still comfortably wearing size 3 diapers. I think Nadia is gonna pass Nora in weight sooner than we think!

Nadia doesn’t sleep well, but I think that’s part of our feeding issue. She’s sleeping in a swing in our room currently, and I get up a million times to put her binkie back into her mouth. And lately it’s taking me over an hour to get her back to sleep after night feedings. I know, this won’t last forever, but it certainly is hard on me right now, as when 7am rolls around I really want to sleep for several more hours, but Nora is awake and ready to go! 

I’ll post separately regarding Nadia’s feeding issues… Monday is Nadia’s first follow-up appointment with cardiology in Iowa City. I was so nervous thinking I had to take both Nora and Nadia, but our usual sitter ended up being available!! Score!! I’m not sure what to expect from the appointment. Currently Nadia is on propranolol for SVT (basically a very fast heart rate). A few times we’ve wondered if her fussiness was due to the SVT, but every time we’ve checked her heart, the rate was within range for her age. So I guess we’ll see what the doctor has to say, I’ll post an update soon.
