Stinkin' Cute!

I had some pictures of Eli taken a few weeks ago and was able to pick them up today. Here are some of the better ones, not that any of them were bad!

I actually had more pictures of Eli taken today and they are sooo cute! I will post those as soon as I decide which one I am going to use for his birthday invitation. Today Eli turned 11 months. One more month until he is one! Yep, my little man is growing up!

Yesterday Eli went to his second pediatrician appointment since he's been home. The good news is that all of his blood work came back normal. The bad news is that he has lost weight. Last month he weighed in at 15lbs. 12 oz. This month he he down to 15lbs. 7 oz. He is now below the third percentile for weight. He did however, grow an inch in the last month and is in the 70th percentile for height. He measures in at 29 1/2 inches!

The two main contributing factors to his weight loss are his increase in activity and his spitting up issues. I can't feed him more than 5oz at a time or it just comes up...EVERYWHERE! I was using Enfamil AR formula and it seemed to help for a while. I did last week switch to soy formula which seems to be helping a bit. He does a little better with solids so Eli will be eating more solids than liquids. And to increase his calorie intake the Dr. recommended that I put butter and/or olive oil in his foods. So this morning Eli had cereal mixed with olive oil. YUM!!

Last Saturday I had another Birthday. Eli gave me the best Birthday present ever! He said Mama TWICE! Happy Birthday to me!
