Big Girl!

This is a video of our big girl holding her head up. She is getting so much better! I think the therapy is really helping her. We are working a lot on her neck and trunk strength, opening hands and reaching for toys, and helping her to track objects. She is already showing improvement in all these things!

Half a Year Gone By!

Suzie will be six months old on Sunday! I can hardly even believe it. She is growing up so fast! We had our six month check-up yesterday and she is doing great! She had to get her six month vaccines so that was a very hard part for both mommy and daughter. But she slept all morning and is doing much better now. Here are her current stats:

Weight: 11 lbs. 4 oz (17th percentile)
Height: 23.5 inches (37th percentile)
Head Circumference: 15.5 inches (17th percentile)

As you can see, she is getting big! Suzie has been such a delight the past few days. I have all kinds of stretches and activities to work on with her. She just giggles and gabs at me most of the time. She is already making some small improvements and I'm very excited to continue her therapy. Although it keeps our weeks very busy! This week in addition to her three therapy appointments she also had three separate doctor appointments...all in Pasadena! Praise the Lord that she enjoys the car so much:)

I left my camera at my sister's house so I don't have any new pics:( But I'll try to get some posted soon.

A Video...Finally!

So I finally caved and put the video on You Tube because I haven't been able to post it on blogspot. It's a fun one with all her cute little noises. You can view it here.

Suzie has had a few fussy days in a row so Kyle and I have taken turns pacing around the apartment with her. She is a perfect little angel this morning. She is sitting quietly in her swing watching Baby Einstein right now. Well, at least she is listening to it:)

We had our first therapy appointment yesterday and it went well. The therapist said she is tracking better and gave me several things to work with her on to try to catch her up. So it looks like Suzie will have therapy on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in addition to her many doctor appointments. She is one busy little girl!

Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year! Who can even believe it's 2009???
