Weight check...

In January, Frankie weighed a little over 20lbs. A few weeks after Lu was born, he got a nasty stomach virus that took him down to 18lbs- almost 19lbs. Yesterday at the pediatrician, he was back up to 20lbs! He's recovered those 2lbs! Sweet! We are going to continue to give him extra calories as he is still so small that he's not on the growth chart for weight. I'm praying he can continue to gain weight and good, so that way he's ready for his belly surgery. He needs all the extra weight he can get. It's so crazy to have one child not on the charts and the other in the 93rd percentile in weight! Talk about the extremes! Anyhow, that's all for now. Next appointment is with cardiology on May 16th.
Thanks for all the love, prayers and support. Xoxo.

Quick update!

Hey all! Sorry I haven't posted lately! No news is GOOD news!

Frankie is the BEST big brother ever! He is the sweetest, funniest, kind hearted little boy! He loves his Lulu!

We go see cardiology in about 2 weeks to talk about getting clearance for belly repair in June.

Wednesday Frankie goes to see the pediatrician to get a weight check. A few weeks after Lucia was born, frankie came down with a nasty, wicked stomach virus that landed him in the hospital 2 nights. And he lost a lot of weight. We've been giving him more calories in hopes to gain that weight back. Lucia will have her 8 week check up that day, too!

Frankie speaks so well now! It's crazy! 3 word sentences sometimes 4 words! He does puzzles, runs, attempts to jump, climbs everything, and is as busy as ever! Loves to slide and be outside now that the weather is finally warming up!

We're still seeing Frankie's Ot twice a week to help with eating. He is slowly eating more and more by mouth and will try almost anything.

I think we finally have Frankie's sleep back to normal. He was having severe separation anxiety for a couple weeks. He would literally have panic attacks at bed time. It was heart breaking. He seems to have come around on that though. He still doesn't like when I go to the bath, to do laundry or run upstairs to grab something. Often that leads to tears and lots of calling out for mama! God love him.

Overall, Frankie rocks! He's so cool! Fun little dude to be around! I'll update again after his pediatrician on Wednesday with hopefully good news on his weight! Love to you all!
