16 Weeks Old & Merry Christmas!!

Ho ho ho!! It's Christmas day, and Cael is also 16 weeks old today! It was a rough day today, though. Cael was extremely fussy. For the first time in a long while, Cael was up at 3 am to eat. And then again at 7. But he didn't fall right to sleep like he usually does. He stayed awake, overtired, and cried. And cried, and cried. And he did the same thing for most of the day. I have all these happy pictures of Cael because I know how to time them. He gave us a few 10 minutes spurts where he was in a good mood, and those were my windows of opportunity. 
He didn't hate his Jolly Jumper, which was his big Christmas present today. But he also didn't love it. Actually, his cousin Briley LOVED it! She jumped around for more than 20 minutes in it. I can't wait for Cael to enjoy it just that much. Anyway, I'm happy that Laureen was around, because she took him several times today while he was crying to give us a break. He was really testing my patience today, as I'm still not feeling well. I feel horrible getting frustrated with him, but a person can only take so much crying. Hopefully he sleeps through the night tonight. 

And now a non-Christmas update. We had Cael to the pediatrician on Thursday to check his circumcision. The doctor saw what I was talking about, but thinks it may be the way his circumcision was done. His words were, "it looks like the circumcision took on the top, but didn't so much on the bottom." He said it could be adhered on the bottom (underneath part), but he didn't want to mess too much with it. He said it's not bad, and sometimes they don't take enough of the skin off, and it can re-attach to the top (glans), and that this wasn't the case here. We told him we were concerned for when he was older, if the skin would be too tight, and he said it shouldn't be a problem. As far as the white fiber that in his skin, he said to leave it alone, and it should work its way out. He didn't want me to try to do it because it could irritate it or cause an infection.

So basically, it was not as bad as I thought it was, thankfully! He gave us a cream to use twice a day for 2 weeks on his penis. He said that if the skin was adhered, that the cream would help separate it. And that if its just the way the circumcision was done, then it wouldn't help, and we wouldn't see a change at all.

Oh, and Cael weighs 13 pounds 8 ounces (just under 25th percentile), and he said that his weight is good because he's following the curve. Overall a very good appointment. I'm so happy and relieved that the pedi didn't need to do a procedure, or pull the skin back.
