Good Week!

This has been an encouraging week all around. Gracie has shown a lot of improvement and her pleasant disposition makes it hard to feel anything but optimistic about her diagnosis. She has made great strides to crawl and is moving around and rolling a lot more than before. It's like she knows what the Dr's said and are trying to prove them wrong. She just AMAZES us everyday!

We took her to her 9 month check up on Thursday and her pediatrician spent some time going over the neurologist report with us and was just very pleased with her development. She seems to be on point with every thing other than the delay with her motor skills on her right side. Gracie weighs 18 lbs 4 oz. and is 27 inches long. So she is in the 50th percentile for babies her age. We just are very encouraged by that Dr's visit and are looking forward to getting her started in PT. Her evaluation is this Wed. so I am guessing we'll have a better course of action on when and how much PT & OT she will need.

Gracie had a great reunion with her buddies Sophia and Jack. Sophia and Grace are just one week apart and Jack is a little firecracker who was born on the 4th of July. Their mommy's and I enjoyed being pregnant together and have had the pleasure of having play dates since they were newborns. Sophia and her mommy moved to NY recently so this is the first time seeing her in a few months. They grow so fast! As you can tell it is hard to get three babies to all look at the same camera. Here are just a few of them.

I love this one with Jack trying to stick his finger in Gracie's ear. I don't blame the fella. He was put between two little girls! Aren't they just precious??

Here is my favorite video of the week. She has been saying different words like MaMa, NaNa, Dog, but this word is by far her favorite and most spoken! Enjoy! Hope it brightens your day like it does ours!
