Yesterday Morgan Kate had her second appointment with Dr. Patel, her gastro doc. The appointment went really well and the doctor was very pleased. Since our last visit, which was just a little over a month ago, she has gained 2.7 pounds. She is also eating now and keeping it down which is HUGE. There are certain times of the day that she eats better, but hey, you pick your battles. He couldn't believe she was a "26 weeker". She is still not on the growth chart for weight according to her birthdate, but she is on the chart according to her developmental age. She is actually almost in the 50th percentile. Big girl! We are supposed to continue with the Prevacid and Erythromycin and return in two months. We were so excited about how well the appointment went.
While we were in the room waiting Morgan Kate seemed to have found her voice. She decided that it would be fun to scream at the top of her lungs. She wasn't crying or anything, she was yelling and testing out those vocal chords. It was hilarious and I am sure others waiting probably thought we were beating our child.
Some pictures of Morgan Kate on her 6 month birthday...
This happens to be one of my favorite outfits that she has and Trav says it looks like curtains from 1970. He's crazy! Even if she was wearing curtains she would still be oh, so sweet!
Once we got home from the doc we both needed a rest. She was worn out and so was I!
I made a cake for MK's six month mark. Well, let me be honest, I was starving and there were absolutely no groceries in the house. However, I did have all the ingredients to make a cake. I had the necessary materials, I was hungry, it was her 6 month birthday...sounded like a good idea to me.
Sleeping peacefully after her 1pm feeding. So, so sweet!
"More tummy time? Mommy sure makes me do this a lot!"
