Worries

Did the toxic stew of worry, regret and pain have some sort of impact on my little guy in the womb?

Did a scheduled c-section result in breathing issues for him?

Is dairy in my diet causing digestive problems?

Could he have reflux?

"Look at his left eye - see how sometimes it doesn't seem to track properly?" Could he have Dr. Google-diagnosed amblyopia?

Our daughter laughed at 5 weeks. With a lot of coaxing, sometimes, we can get a few smiles, at now 7 weeks. Could that be an early indication of something ominous?

What's that dry patch on his forehead?

--
Hey, in other news, did I tell you all that at my 6 week post-partum check up the doctor cleared me for another pregnancy, if we wanted?

Ha ha ha.

Dear God, if I ever have another child I'm never leaving the house. Poor thing. (point in "reasons not to have.")

And Bwah indeed.

Oh yeah, I'm sure you're just itching to get going on more baby making at this point!

About the eyes: In the first few months Big A had one eye that liked to roll around against the tide, too. Freaky looking, but over time it disappeared on its own. Hopefully the same will be true for your little guy.

It's normal for you baby to not be smiling that much now. Our doctor told us two months was the norm for smiling.

Am I doing okay? said...

Wow. You must really have it together. I don't think I've EVER been cleared for baby by a medical professional. My Dr's just want to talk about preventing pregnancy. *sigh*

My 15 month old son has always been about 2 to 3 months behind his older sister at every developmental milestone - I finally figured out she was "early" and he is simply "average!" It was very hard for me to resist comparing them, but over time I have gotten better about letting him proceed at his own pace. I loved what you wrote about Niobe and IRL and Internets. A belated congratulations on your baby boy!
