Yesterday was our one month birthday! I can hardly believe it. Mom and Braden are doing well at home. He had successful visits with the Drs and specialists earlier in the week. They, along with us, are anxious to see his progress. Because the treatments and care vary we are waiting to see which direction he wants to go. Based on how he progresses will determine the type of care he will receive.
He is sleeping well at night. We put him down around 8 or 8:30pm depending upon how much time either of us want to spend with him after we "plug" him in. He makes it through the night until around 4am at which point he lets us know that he either needs changed or he is ready to get up. Mom thinks that he may be developing colic. She is going to speak with his pediatrician today and try to determine that maybe some of his irritability is attributed to this or something else. If in fact it turns out that he maybe a little colicly, we will consult with our family expert Nana Wilson on how to best treat him.
This has been a very positive week for us in terms of learning to live as a family. We have read all that we could, but there is no substitute for "on the job training". We hope that everyone enjoys their holiday weekend. We continue to be amazed at what God has provided for us with Braden.
