He's growing!

Today, Riley had a weigh-in at the pediatrician's office. And today, he weighed 10lbs 13oz!!!! He's growing and gaining weight, hooray! I was ecstatic over this news. This is the biggest weight gain he's had in MONTH's. Seriously. Apparently the funky smelling Pregestimil + mommy's milk combo is working well for him. Oh and the GI doctor was absolutely correct. He is tolerating the powdered Pregestimil much better than he was the ready to use kind. AND the powdered stuff, while it still smells funky, is much less offensive than the ready to use stuff. He's growing on it, he's having less output on it AND mom and dad aren't gagging over it. We'd call that a score all the way around. Now if it were only cheaper!

Travis got some good news today also. He got his report card today for the 2nd 9 weeks and he did EXCELLENT! I'm so proud of him. He has a 1/2 day of school tomorrow and he's super excited about that.

so all around, it was a good day for my boys!

Enjoying his exersaucer!



Sitting like a big boy (with help of course)




I'm really not sure who is more in love




Can you see Travis' contribution to this picture? :o)

Sweet pictures! Riley seems to be into all the fun toys on his exersaucer. What a great little seat. All of my grandchildren just loved theirs. Riley is doing very well sitting. Before long he will be sitting and reaching for things. Great news on his growth...he is doing soooo well, even if his milk is a little funky.
Mr. Travis, you are sure doing a great job in school, and you certainly are a SUPER big brother to Riley!Mommy and Daddy have every right to be proud of you.
Hugs to All, Dale
