G was born at 33 weeks, 6 days. Six weeks early.
Sure, the time in the NICU was tough, but there were nurses there explaining everything. And making me feel as though it was all running smoothly.
Now that we're home, though, I'm full of questions. The biggest thing (not really a worry, or a concern...just a thing) that gets me is the milestone chart.
By 1 month, babies are supposed to do this, that, and the other thing.
But at one month old, Kid still had 2 weeks until his due date. He was doing some things of a full term one month old, but not everything.
And while I know delays are normal, and I should go by his adjusted age, it's hard. At this point in the game, I should be looking at the milestones of a five week old...yet my baby looks like a 2.5 month old.
Ay, ay, ay. Being a mom takes a lot of energy! Still loving it, though!
