So I finally managed to sleep in my bed last night.  For the last few weeks I have been sleeping on the couch because her crib is in our dining room and last night I turned on the monitor and was able to sleep in my own bed.  Granted I was up much more often to check on her than when I was closer but I think I will eventually get used to it.  Adaleigh is getting so big!  She has already started raising her head and holding it up.  Before it was more of a flinging motion but there is definitely more control there now and she can hold it in an upright position for several seconds before she lays it back down.  Milestones all around :)

2 month check up

Adaleigh went to the doctor yesterday for her 2 week wellness check.  She is up to 7lbs 10oz and 20" long. Doc said her hernia is healing nicely and not to be worried about it and eventually the "constipation" will resolve itself.  It seems the problem is not with her actually getting backed up but her not having the urge to bear down and poop.  We are continuing the prune juice .5oz every other day and a suppository after 4 days of not pooping unless we notice she is uncomfortable.  Her rash is also clearing up and is mostly gone from her face but there is still some areas on her chest.  She also got her shots, 3 shots, drops for polio, and foot pricked to check her iron levels.  She cried but was ok afterwards.  Last night her appetite was not what it usually is and she was more fussy but this morning she ate a good deal but then threw up afterward.  She doesnt have a fever and does seem to be feeling better so hopefully that was the worst of it.
