Million Dolla Baby
<~~ That is all my beautiful niece and nephews and Lilli, from about 3 weeks ago!
Tomorrow we go to our occupational therapy, last wednesday we started practicing with spoons and watery baby food, just to see if she would get her tounge moving... suprisingly, as long as shes in a good mood- SHE DOES AWSOME! Maybe she will never take a bottle.. just go to a cup? We'll see! I plan on weighing her tomorrow again to see if we have thickened her up at all! I have a good feeling about it!
She had her first little cold over the weekend, just lots of congestion in the middle of the night, its going away now and she is back to her normal spoiled self! We finally got a call from the GI doctor, and have an appointment set up in a few weeks... I am ACTUALLY nervous about that one- just because I am worried they will try to push getting the Gbutton for her eating... and I HATE to do it... hate hate hate, I just want to give her a full chance... I still feel like it just hasnt been long enough!! Maybe they wont though... that'll be a relief! I just need her to gain weight, otherwise I really think they'll want me to get a Gbutton. She hasnt been throwing up NEARLY as much as before.. she has her days, but the last 2 days have been really great! For a while now I had tried holding her while she was feeding on the tube, but I think Im starting to realize, that she throws up less when she is in her carseat or rocker basinet thing... Ill test it out tomorrow!
She started to get into the baby einstein videos and things and really watching them! It is THE cutest thing ever, what a relief for me :0) She also loves her blankets all over her face.. pretty darn cute! Next week we are going to have professional portraits done by a VERY sweet lady who found my blog on here :0) And offered us a session! I am VERY VERY excited! And THEN next friday is our child support meeting... IF someone doesnt cancel it! For her sake, I reallly hope he doesnt cancel again, Im ready to get this over and done with. If he wants to be in her life, awsome, if not... too bad for him, but we need help financially! Just got some crazy bills from the hospital in the mail..! Thank God for the support my parents have given me! I would be totally screwed! And thank you for the DONATIONS TOO! Every little bit helps!
We are going out of town for the weekend, to our ranch :0) My fabulous friends are coming, rain or shine we will have an awsome time, and Im glad they get to spend the weekend with Lillian. Rachel has been through my side through everything, I could never ask for anyone better, but since we have been home, she has only gotten to spend one night with Lilli and I because things have been so crazy for her and I. This is will SO great for them to hang out! And Im excited to see my sister Sarah too... even though I just saw her a few weeks ago, she is always on her toes and a big help when Im feeding Lilli or putting her down for naps and stuff, its like she is very aware of doing it on her own- and even though I say I dont need help most of the time, she still asks, I love that.. I better get used to taking help soon I guess! Stubborn...
Lillian has really started workin those hands, for sucking, AND pulling! Always grabbin that tube! Im a pro. at it now!
Anyways, Thanks for keeping track of us :0) and for all the love and support, we are some VERY lucky girls!
