Happy Thanksgiving!


We hope that everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for this year. We have the love and support of our family and friends, the good fortune to be in a town with excellent medical care and most importantly, we have a healthy, happy little girl!

Callie has had a good week. She is now weighing in at over 16 pounds! She has definitely leveled off with her weight gain, but that is because she needs to gain a little height before she can gain any more pounds :) Callie has also outgrown our home scale, so her weigh-in's are less frequent! We have started putting Callie in her high chair when she is eating solids. We are still struggling to get her to enjoy solid food. We are finding she does better with vegetables alone, so for right now, we are just trying to get her comfortable with that before pushing fruit and cereal again.
She is now up to date with her seasonal vaccines. She has had both the regular flu and H1N1 vaccines and has started with her monthly RSV vaccines. (http://kidshealth.org/parent/infections/lung/rsv.html) Infants and Toddlers has been extremely pleased with her progress developmentally! We have a couple of big appointments coming up with Neurosurgery and the Developmental Pediatrican and will keep everyone updated with her progress!

Happy Girl

video
We are sorry for not posting last week, but we have been having computer issues! Callie has had two great weeks in a row. Every day she does something else to amaze us! She is now rolling all over the place, both from stomach to back and back to stomach. She is doing a great job sitting all by herself, and loves to play her drum! We are pretty sure that she is teething because everything goes in her mouth (including her drum)! She is eating more foods every day. So far she has had sweet potato's, carrots, sweet peas, and bananas (all mixed with her cereal). Surprisingly, she loves the vegatables the most! She is also starting to enjoy watching videos of herself. In one of the pictures below, I am playing her a video of her laughing. She loves to watch it over and over again and eventually will try to eat my blackberry!
