Half a YEAR? How can it be possible that our baby Grey is 6 months old today? Time is flying by! It’s so great to see how Grey progresses each day, week and month! She is really growing fast and becoming such a smiley baby. We love when she smiles at us! Will that ever get old? I don’t think so.
Since last month Grey is a lot more reactive especially in the morning. She still sleeps a LOT, but when she is awake she is so fun to be around. Dad’s kisses and a little “boop” sound really bring out the smiles and sometimes a little coo.
We recently went to the doctor and she is now weighing in at 8lbs 4 ounces! We’ve had to make a couple trips to the pediatrician because of her acid reflux. Recently she has refused to take her bottles, which is frustrating because this girl needs and MUST gain weight to catch up with her fellow 6 month friends. Thankfully she has been taking them like a champ today so hopefully she will continue to progress in this area.
Grey has been episode free and doing so well for several weeks that we no longer have to have her on a monitor. It is so nice to no longer carry that lovely and ever-so-quiet monitor around.
She recently had a hearing test done that was inconclusive because of her being awake and an equipment malfunction. The test was only 50% complete, but based on those results the ear doctor referred us to an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor for follow up. We will visit them in January.
We are so happy to be celebrating Grey’s Half Birthday and Christmas! She is such a gift to us and so many others. Throughout this journey we have been told by multiple people that Grey has given them hope again and a new found belief in God. It NEVER gets old to hear how Grey has touched lives and how God has worked through her life in a short 6 months. It’s amazing- simply put.
We cannot believe we met this little bundle of joy 6 months ago!
and one more because she is so cute and all tuckered out from the holiday festivities…
