Good news Monday

So, good news: We were right to be concerned about Hester's weight. After today's doctor appointment, Hester's back on calorie-enriched soy formula. Dr. Gentle, our regular pediatrician (not her rude, dismissive colleague who filled in for Dr. Gentle last Monday), saw Hester this morning and was concerned that Hester's not gaining weight as she should be. She wasn't worried, mind you, but she was concerned. So that's good. Now we're crackin'! Even more good news: Hester is healthy as a horse otherwise. Thank god and knock wood.

We had such a nice weekend. We had a wonderfully quiet snow day on Saturday (we were literally snowed in--Petunia couldn't open our front door and had to dig her way from the back door to the front porch), and Sunday we went to a lovely brunch for LGBT adoptive parents. It was so nice to see the other babies and to talk with their parents. And then--wait for it--we went out to dinner last night with baby Hester! She fussed a bit but she didn't howl, and it was even during her colicky time. She was a star, and Petunia and I were very happy to be out and about with her. Thank god for Dr. Brown's, that's all I'm sayin'.

In other news, right this very minute one of my child care kids is turning into a big brother! His new sister or brother is due via scheduled C at 2pm, which is NOW, so I'm thinking good thoughts for his parents. I'm hoping to get a call in a few hours saying that all is well and that mama and baby are doing fine. I'm so happy for them! Fingers crossed for an easy, uncomplicated delivery and a happy, healthy baby.

Awesome, sounds like a great weekend. I'm glad Hester is such a star - but of COURSE she is, since she's the greates baby ever.

Give her kisses for me!

That's great to hear! It sounds like things are going so well. Wonderful that you stuck with your feeling on Hester not gaining weight. Now she'll get what she needs.

All the best for continued good news!
