2 months old

It's hard to believe that Alexis is 2 months old today. On one hand I feel like we've been here forever but then again, it also seems like just yesterday I was pregnant. Can't decide if time is flying or standing still...

Alexis lost significant weight yesterday. She's down to 6 lbs 10 oz (from 6 lbs 13 oz). This is probably due to her being on a diuretic and Dr. A said that once she's gotten rid of the excess fluid, her weight should stabilize and hopefully then start increasing.

Alexis is now receiving 55mL per bottle and they increased her calories. I asked the dr about giving her a bottle after she nurses since I'm sure she's getting no where near 55mL from me and the doctor agreed. In fact, she seemed surprised that we weren't already doing that. Glad I asked.

Still lots of "wait and see". I really hate the phrase "wait and see".
