Eva had the last home visit from the Neonatal Community Team today. It really didn’t feel real.  Hilary visited us today and thought that Eva looked massive, in a good way of course.  Today’s weight was 4.72kg (10lb6oz), a 360g increase in 2 weeks.  This puts her just above the 2nd centile on the chart.  Eva is nearly 7 times her birth weight!  We were delighted with this as Eva hadn’t really been so keen on the chicken so I thought that she may not have replaced the calories and protein of the Infatrini.  

Now Eva can wean off of the night bottle of Infatrini.  We will start to reduce the volume from tonight and hope that she adjusts and still sleeps through.  Today was the second day she ate her chicken in full so a good day to start. Eva has been great at trying the new flavours of vegetables.  Today was spinach and peas which I eased in with some sweet potato.  Not so keen but still ate all in her  plate.  Now we can try other protein sources like lentils and white fish. I hope that she prefers the texture of those.  Also we can add some cheese to her vegetables for the protein and fats.

Eva’s teeth have really been bothering her for the past 3 days.  I can’t believe what a bad design teeth are.  Couldn’t God have planned it a little better?  As you can see in the photos Eva has a new very colourful toy, a Wozzit.  This has been a good distraction to the teeth pain.  Poor thing has just been the dribbling Queen.

Eva’s reflux has improved so much that she no longer needs Gaviscon after breast feeds but we will continue it with the bottle.  Of course she may have some bad days but it has just improved so much that she must feel better.  

We enjoyed  a surprise visit from Andrew’s Uncle Elwyn on Monday as he was in London for work for a few days.  Seeing as it was his birthday it was a great excuse for some baking.  We were delighted that Eva could meet another member of the family.  Auntie Ali (Andrew’s sister) arrives in 8 sleeps so that is very exciting.

Most importantly the weather is looking great for the next few days so Eva and I can get out and about in the sunshine (compared to today’s rain).  Also the weekend is looking great for our visit to Thame to see Jackie and Tony.
