Official 1 Year Appointment
We were able to get our official 1 year check up on Friday. Mia is doing well. She weighed 20.6 lbs and is 29 inches long - in the 30th percentile on the growth charts. She got 2 immunizations and handled them like a champ. No more heart murmur heard but she does STILL have an ear infection. We are on oral and drop antibiotics and if it is not cleared up we are off to the ENT. Sleeping is still an issue. She is down to getting up once a night for a bottle. The doctor encouraged me to try to bring her a bottle of water instead of milk. She said that she may be getting up because she knows she will get some sweet milk - I guess she has me trained - lol! I tried that for the first time last night. She didn't seem two upset about the water and drank a little of it and than pushed it away and I rocked her back to sleep in about 50 minutes. I will try it again tonight and see what happens. She is still not saying much of anything. She is constantly babbling but doesn't really say any words. She does like to point her little finger at things and wants to know the what they are and watches our lips very closely as we tell her what the object is.
Unfortunately, our state has been hit hard with the flu and our doctor's office is out of vaccinations at this time. Aiden has a fever of 102.9 right now. The doctor told us that we should bring him in if his fever continues tomorrow and they will test him for the flu - great! Oh well what can you do.
We went to the Ole Miss/Alabama game this weekend. Alabama won big time but we had a good time. It was nice to have it a little cooler outside this time if only it weren't so muddy. Mia ate the entire time - I guess she has the tailgating thing down - lol!
