Getting so big!

Rylee has kept me quite busy between her colic and reflux. We have had doctor's appointments seemingly at least twice a week AND work has already convinced me to start working at least 2 hours a day to get things organized there because they miss me so much. I'm a little sad about this because I want to spend as much time with Rylee as I can before going back to work full time! I know it's only two hours, and it IS better than getting NO money at all...but still.

At our doctor's visit last week, Rylee weighed in at 5lbs 8oz (down 4oz since the previous appointment). She lost a little weight which was a bit concerning to me, so hopefully she pics it back up by the time we go to the doctor next week!

I took her to the Pulmonologist to get her monitor checked a couple of weeks ago, and he confirmed that any apnea alarms she had were false! We did have a few low heart rate alarms in the beginning, mostly during feedings, but she is completely past all of that now! She eats like a champ and is much more alert. She still can't hold her head up or do much of anything else besides destroy EVERY.SINGLE.DIAPER and keep me awake at the most inconvenient times, but she is amazing. I love just staring at her and watching her facial expressions. She unknowingly smiles A LOT now (especially in her sleep). It's so cute! :D

Did I mention before that we decided to cloth diaper Rylee? Poo on disposables and all the money they cost! We have been using mostly prefolds and covers with a few extra small FuzziBunz pocket diapers in the mix. I have an entire stash for when she gets bigger, but she probably wont be in any of the other diapers for a couple more weeks. It has been super easy so far! I do a load of laundry every day just because I didn't buy a TON of prefolds, and I don't mind at all. I have to do laundry anyway, so what's one more load!?
