Good news, we went to the doctor today for Noah's weight check and from 11 lbs, 8 oz last week, he is back up to 12 lbs, 12 oz today.
He's taking less formula at each feeding now, but I think we'll hold onto the scale we rented from the pharmacy for a bit longer for a little peace of mind. We don't go back to see the doctor until he is 4 months old now, so in about 3 weeks.
And Benjamin thinks he's found a good use for the electric pump's carrying case:
I don't think I mentioned it yet in the blog, but Frederic's request for regular hours has been accepted! Starting in early July, he will begin work every day at 7 am and be home between 3-4 pm. We are very happy about this and hope it will make our lives a little bit easier.
I'm also pushing for him to find a job in the US, but so far the airlines he's looked at are cheapskates ($10/hour in San Diego? You've GOT to be kidding me!) and/or want the applicant to have lived 5 years in the US already (probably a terrorist prevention thing, but pretty dumb all the same). So if you have any leads, let us know! Preferably ones not too far from St Louis.
