Three Month Growth Spurt - just kidding

Weigh-in revealed all the hype surrounding the three month growth spurt is a lot of hoo-ha. Oliver only gained 5 ounces. Well within the acceptable range, but a bit disappointing for me. I was sure we were looking at 8 ounces, at least. It's a lot like when I am positive I smell poo and undress the kid, only to find a perfectly pristine diaper. Oliver frequently teases his Mum in this manner.

While we're on the subject of poo, Oliver went "on strike" last week. He does this occasionally and our doc has said it is nothing to worry about, but that doesn't make me feel better. I'm not sure which is worse, the repeated opening of a clean diaper when I'm sure it will contain poo or the aftermath of a few days with a virtual cork in the kid's bum.

So we had no poo from Wednesday morning until Saturday morning. Saturday's "production" was on the light side of normal. Sunday was pretty average. I foolishly thought we might be out of the woods. Today....whoa nellie! Be very glad there are no pictures.

Happy three month birthday to Oliver. Happy three month nursiversary to both of us!

Your nose might suppose, but your finger knows for sure. You have to wash them if the diaper's full, anyway...
