Happy 6 Months!

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!

  5. Yesterday it rained in buckets for a bit, then hailed (pea-size)! Yikes! Things are looking pretty good, except that the leaves on the pepper plants are a bit ripped up. They are still standing and I think they will survive. I’m just glad I don’t yet have any veggies or fruits that would have been bombarded by the pellets.

  6. Hi sweet family,
    I just wanted to say hi and leave a bit of preemie advice. You might not need it but chances are you may. I’ve written to you all before, I have a 24 week preemie who is now 16 months. Looking back I’ve often said, “I wish we would have known that.” Mostly in regard to her reflux and eating.
    Michaela never had a g tube, but has always struggled with eating. It was a struggle to get her to drink her bottles but we managed ok. My advice to you all that I wish I had is to get Grey in feeding therapy sooner rather than later and get her reflux under control now. Michaela’s reflux wasn’t treated appropriately and led to more feeding aversions. She’s doing ok but struggles with solids. I probably made it worse because as a new mom I didn’t know what I was doing when I attempted feeding her solids, often making them too thick and taking it too fast. My daughter is very sensitive to change. She gagged and threw up a lot! She’s slowly getting better but doesn’t show much interest in eating now. She usually swats the spoon away. We’re starting another feeding therapy program in a couple weeks that I’m hopeful about. How is little Grey eating? I hope she and you all are doing well! Feel free to email me if you ever have any questions.
