10 Weeks: Perfecting the Pouty Lip

May 25, 2011 at 2:56 PM | Posted in Baby Romaezi | 2 Comments

Well, now that we have real tears the next step is a perfectly protruding lower lip. Our boy has perfected the pout for sure. I guess we can call that step 2 of wrapping mommy and daddy around the little finger. I have to say, once he learns to manipulate us, that lip will get him pretty far. It’s really cute. I have yet to get a picture of it yet but am sure that I will with time.

Kamran went to the cardiologist on Tuesday and the appointment went well. He was born with a few preemie heart issues. One resolved itself (the PDA) and two remain. The one we are concerned about is the atrial septal defect or ASD. At birth the hole was 5-7 mm and considered medium on size. Thankfully the hole has shrunk to a very small 2 mm. We follow up in a year to check progress. Hopefully it will be fully resolved by then. If not, he may need a simple catheter procedure to close it. Kam did pretty well at the appointment when we got there ge screamed and screamed…and screamed. Turned out he wanted to eat an hour early. So I fed him while they stuck about 9-10 electrodes on him to monitor his heart rate. Everything looked fine so we moved to another room and met the cardiologist. She had met Kamran but I didn’t meet her because Kam was in the NICU when the EKG was done the first time. She drew pictures and made sure I understood what was going on. Kamran fooled her into thinking he was an easy baby. He stared at his best friend the window and cooed the entire time. We then moved into the room with the EKG where Kamran was completely content staring at the fluorescent lights…until the tech turned them off. I managed to distract him with the light on my phone for a little while but eventually he had enough and made it known. It was nothing like the ultrasound on his hernia. Now THAT. Was bad.

Kam also got his first cold this week. A cold in the spring. I caught it from the pediatrician’s office I think. And of course, he got it from me. He’s been really stuffy but has been sleeping in his bassinet at night. I can’t put him down during the day but other than that he is doing well.

He also got his first diaper rash. Stupid pampers baby dry. Now that Kamran is officially in size 1 at the ripe old age of 2 months, we were using diapers that a friend’s little boy grew out of. Well, they were no bueno for Kam’s butt. Oh well, at least they were free.

We skipped our walk with my friend from the hospital again this week. I didn’t want to get her or the babies sick. We will resume our walk next Thursday for sure.

Oh, and Kamran is closing in on the 9 pound mark. On Sunday he was 8 lbs 11 oz. Tuesday he was 8 lbs 9.5 oz. According to that math he lost weight. Considering he was measured on 2 different scales, I’m not so concerned.

Little man loves to kick his legs and spends lots of time with his hands open. He loves all windows and lights and prefers them to actual toys. If you put a toy in his hand he holds onto it for quite some time and will even occasionally grab at toys on his play gym.
