Aunt Sandy and Nolen
Itty Bitty starfish!
These are just some pictures from when Nanna and Uncle Mark came to visit us in San Diego! Nolen and I went up to Utah for Thanksgiving and had soooo much fun. I LOVE the holidays in Utah- cold and crisp and just lovely. Nolen had sooo much fun with his cousin Will and all the attention from his Nanna and Papa.
*Thanks to Grandma Karen for the ADORABLE sweater and beenie!
Dr. Varma told me today that I need to:
"get Nolen into see Dr. Meltzer again for another recomendation for his head- It just doesn't look right, Do you see how his left ear is curled more than the other because of his bone?,You need to fight this, You need to definetly have this taken care of ASAP, He just doesn't look right"
"He's not crawling? Don't put him in his bouncer anymore- you shouldn't do that- you are making it too easy for him- dont. MAKE him crawl- he NEEDS to crawl- you really shouldn't be making it easy for him"
"I'm not happy about his weight. He should weigh more. Do you feed him enough? Do you breastfeed? Give him formula. Come back in a month- he is not at a good weight"
ALL RIGHT ALREADY DR. VARMA! I HEAR YOU! POKE MY SON A LITTLE MORE AND MAKE HIM SCREAM LOUDER.
I think I am a good mom. Sure, his head is big and uneven-so what? Everyone stops to tell me how cute he is wherever we go. Sure, he needs to crawl- he will. And sure he may be underweight- but you know what??? He's healthly and happy!!
And my boy is 9 months old today. I love him. I didn't love him so much this afternoon when he was a "baby" at the doctor's office- my wonderful husband took him away for some "daddy/son" time and for me to have a break. wonderful.
Nolen brightens my day-EVERYDAY.
