Abriana: Six Months

Abriana is six months! Part of me feels like she's always been a part of our lives and another part of me can't believe it's already been six months. So much has happened! Here's her updates:

  • Weight: 14lbs. 2oz. (12%)
  • Height: 26 in. (50%)
  • She started eating solids. So far she's had oatmeal, avocado, banana, applesauce, prunes, and sweet potatoes. I think she enjoys the applesauce the best, but sometimes it's hard to tell. 
  • She generally sleeps 12 hours straight at night.
  • She's getting pretty good at sitting by herself. Sometimes her toes are just too much to resist and she falls as she dive bombs for her feet.
  • She almost rolled from her back to her belly without any prompting. She always gets her arm stuck and can't seem to get it out.  She is easily rolling from her belly to her back again.
  • Celebrated Gaga's birthday with her
  • Got in the pool for the first time
  • She's still the happiest kid around.  She'll gladly give out a smile to anyone she meets.  I love that she can brighten others' day.
  • We still have appointments to go see the cardiologist, neurologist, hematologist, neurosurgeons, and plastic surgeons, but at least the visits are much less frequent.
  • She loves to put everything in her mouth - her fingers, your fingers, any toy she can reach, stuffed animals, blankets.... anything. People keep commenting about how she's teething, but these teeth are taking a mighty long time to make their appearance. 
  • We decreased our physical therapy visits to once a month. :)
  • We went and visited her surgery buddy (more on that later).
  • We visited lots of former co-workers and friends.
  • We went strawberry picking twice.
  • She went and walked the ALS walk with me and my friend who works in ALS research.
  • To 'celebrate' turning six months, she decided to give her parents a shunt-failure scare and we spent a night in the hospital.  Thankfully, everything was fine. 
 Happy Birthday, Gaga!
