Wow! These last three weeks have just flown past! Sorry for the lack of pictures and updates! Everyone is doing great in the Martin household. During the first two weeks, Spencer was a little cholicky with gas. After one of his check-ups, our pediatrician suggested switching him from regular Enfamil to Soy Enfamil (which we add to his milk) and told Joy to cut dairy for a week, which seems to have helped. He’s still not sleeping all the way through the night as we’re trying to keep him on the 4-hour schedule the NICU had him on, but Spencer apparently has other plans! Sometimes he gets pretty fussy and we have to give him his bottle 30 minutes or an hour early, but there are times where he sometimes goes 5 hours between feedings, so it seems to balance out.
It seems as though Spencer is adapting to living at home pretty well. His days are full of eating, sleeping, and pooping, and he’s so growing fast! As of a Monday of this week, Spencer is up to 9.2 lbs and he’s 20.5″ long. It’s hard to believe that almost 3 months ago, our little miracle baby was born at 3 lbs 12 oz. We still have about 3 weeks left on his quarantine before our family can come seem, him, so in the meantime, here’s a bunch of pictures and a short video I showed at our last baby shower.
And here’s the video we showed at our baby shower since Spencer couldn’t be there:
