So Much Better Now

I took Bennett back to the doctor yesterday. They just wanted to check his weight and make sure he was doing okay since he was so sick and had lost so much weight when I took him in on Monday. I am so thrilled to report that Bennett has gained over 1/2 a pound in just 48 hours. The doctor thought it would take about a week for that to happen so the fact that it happened in 48 hours is so amazing! The nurses were cheering us on and the doctor said "what did you do?!" Ha! It looks like a few extra nursing sessions did the trick. I've also been giving him some baby oatmeal mixed with 3oz of milk once a day so I'm sure that helped too. It made me feel so good and relieved so much stress to see Bennett put some of that weight back on so quickly. Something I didn't share on Monday was that Bennett's skull got an indention in it because he was so sick. Apparently that happens when you get extremely dehydrated--I had no idea. When the doctor pointed it out it scared the crap out of me. I'm glad to know now so I can watch for it if it ever happens again (hopefully it won't, ever!!) but that little indention is going away as he's started to feel better and get rehydrated, thank goodness.
This sweet baby woke up today acting like his normal self again and I am so grateful. It was really sad seeing him so pitiful. He could hardly hold his head up he was so weak but now he's smiling and talking and laughing at his big brother again. Music to my ears.
I don't have a whole lot to say about this sweet toddler except he sure does make me smile a lot. He's repeating everything I say these days. Earlier this week when I was at the deli counter getting some turkey, he repeated every thing I was saying to the girl behind the counter. I couldn't stop laughing at him. Whenever I'm talking to Scott on my Bluetooth in the car, Campbell repeats everything I say. It cracks me up! He's so serious about it too, saying it just like I say it and not trying to be silly....just trying to be a grown up.
I forgot to share with you all how much I have loved wearing CC Beanies this winter. I think it's so hard to find a good beanie, do you? The top is always too long and gives me a cone head or they're too tight or just....not right. These are so great though and I have several different colors. If you don't have any, go get some! They're probably on sale now.
That's all for now. Fingers crossed that Bennett and I won't wake up with the stomach flu tomorrow! Hopefully we'll break the streak.
