infections



Sophia is 6 1/2 months. She weighs 18 lbs 9 oz and is 26 inches long. She is now crawling and pulling herself up on 2 feet (using the couch and her play pen) but she will only stand for a second before she falls. She is making this new squealing sound. Its the cutest thing. On monday I had to take her to the drs because she was miserable all weekend and running a fever of 101.5. The dr said she has an ear infection which they gave her amoxicilin to treat. She also has had a rash around her neck which I took her to the dr for 2 weeks ago. They said it was from her drooling or it could have been an allergic reaction to her foods. So I stopped all foods and am reintroducing her to one food a week staring with oatmeal, this week sweet potatoes. Anyway, when I took her to the dr's for her ear infection, they told me the rash is actually exzema (which me & vic thought it was from the beginning). She as small dry patches all over her. So I have to use unscented everything now. My poor girl. Still no teeth have popped through :( She is really working on them now, biting everything. We just love watching her grow.

Teeth



Sophia is 5 months and growing like a weed. She had her last dr's appt on Sept 5th and weighed 16.9 lbs and was 24 inchs long. She is rolling all over the place now (her first roll was from her back to front on 8/8/10). she is also scooting across the room (using her face and legs). She is drinking 6 oz of formula every 4 hrs (Gerber Good Start- Protect Plus.) We introduced her to cereal about a month ago and now giving her some organic fruits and veggies. She has been teething since she was about 2 1/2 months but no teeth have popped through yet (hopefully this week). Her hair is now growing back & she is getting tons of curls (she lost all of her hair on her sides and had quite the mohawk...lol). She loves to watch Nick Jr (wonder pets, yo gaba gaba, Olivia, Little Bill, & Oswald..... she will let you know when she doesn't like a show by wining or she will look funny like "turn the channel mom" lol). I am back to work now so my mom is watching her during the day (Thank God). I miss her soooo much though. She is the best thing that ever happened to me and Vic. We just love her to pieces.
Oh on another note: I lost all of my weight!! WOOOHOOOOO!!!

Sophia is 7 weeks already. At her 1 month appt she weighed 11 lbs 12 ozs. I wonder how much she weighs now?? She is almost popping out of her size 1 diapers....lol
I stopped breastfeeding after 5 weeks and the transition to formula was no fun. She took well to the formula but I think it made her colicy......wondering if I should change her formula?? Sometime it seems like she is still hungry after I feed her. I am giving her 4 ozs every 4 hrs.
She is definitely an over acheiver! She is so alert and has been since birth. She is starting to like her swing now. In the beginning she did not want me to put her down so the swing was out of the question.
When she cries she calms down to mommy's "sshhh's" or daddy's motor sounds. She is starting to smile alot more. She used to smile only in her sleep or when she was gassy. Now she is starting to smile when you talk to her. :)
She doesn't really like tummy time. I think she just gets frustrated. Hopefully soon she will enjoy it.
Being her mommy is the best and I look forward to watching her grow!
