24 weeks

24 weeks?  Really?  I can't believe it!  We are having so much fun with her at this stage! 
She is so interactive, "talks" ALL THE TIME, squeals, kicks like crazy, plays with toys and is just an overall joy!

A few updates:

  • Still taking 5 (sometimes 6)  6 ounce bottles of Enfamil AR for spit up formula
  • Wearing a size 2 diaper
  • I packed up (SO SAD!) all of her newborn to 3-6 clothes.  She was running low on PJ's so I went through and found about 7 new pairs in her closet.  Shocker!  It's like she has a new wardrobe every few months!  So she is officially in all  6 month clothes, some 6-9 and even a few 9 month PJ's.  BIG girl!
  • She eats rice cereal once a day...2 tablespoons mixed with formula and Apple/Prune juice blend to assist with the ongoing tummy issues. 
  • She is literally laughing out loud at everything!  Hearing her laugh makes me laugh and it is such a sweet sound.  She really cracks herself up!
  • Still not sitting up on her own, but she's close! 
  • Rolling over when she's in the mood, not as often as it was in the beginning.
  • Loving the exersaucer!  We still have to put a blanket behind her to keep her steady, but she's having fun playing.
  • Spit up is better, but definitely not gone.  We refilled the Prevacid prescription and it is helping.  I am ready for her to be off of that stuff!

We go to the West TN School for the Deaf next Monday the 19th  to have her hearing checked again.  The NICU scheduled this appointment for us after she was born.  They said the antibiotics she was on could cause hearing loss so this is just a precautionary measure.  I know she can hear just fine, but I am still a little anxious.  Just the thought of us having this appointment in the first place is a little unnerving.  De De is coming with us for moral support!

The following Monday, the 26th, is her  6 month well baby visit!  More shots, more stats and more fun with Dr. Amy!  I promise to have a follow up post with all the latest info. 


  1. she's so pretty! and so alert!
    And a BIG GIRL- Bates is in 6-9 mth clothes!

  2. She is so beautiful. Ginny and I look at her pictures just about every day and talk about her. Sweet! Lee Alice
