It does seem like a long time getting here, but Hope has reached 13 pounds. She looks a lot bigger than 13 pounds to me, but she is growing like crazy so happy days for us. She went into her Glenn at a little over 12 pounds and I know it set her weight gain back a little bit. She has been eating great...anything and everything. She loves to eat with the family and so far...cheese puffs are her very favorite.
Another milestone...her first tooth finally popped through. It is tiny and hardly noticeable. I gave her a piece of melon and she was chewing on it like usual. It fell and when I looked at it I noticed indents on it. I just knew what that meant...a tooth! I am now wondering if that is what was making her nose run and the cough. I just thought it was a cold, but maybe it was a tooth. I wish I could take a picture and show all of you her little tooth, but it really did just pop through and it is still a sliver...not really the whole tooth. She loves it though and spends the day rubbing her tongue on it.
She is still babbling all day long and I know that is a prelude to non-stop talking. She had visits from Help Me Grow last week and did great with the speech therapist and the occupational therapist. She is pretty much on target for those areas. Her biggest delay is in her gross motor skills. I believe some of that may be because I have been so afraid to put her on her tummy. She cries so hard after just a minute or two and it breaks my heart. I know it is something she will need to do, so I am working on it every day. A little bit at a time...definitely not as much as I am sure everyone would like, but I do more and more every day. I figure she will work her way up to spending minutes on her tummy and hopefully she will be crawling in a few months.
