7 Months Old

I'm HOW old??!!

Yes, Julianne, you are 7 months old. We cannot believe it either! We enjoyed comparing pictures of Julianne around the 19th of every month to today's picture and we thought you might like to see how she's changed as well.

In tummy news...

Julianne did A LOT of gagging/retching today. Its disheartening, but at least we were prepared that this was a possibility thanks to a friend whose little boy has gone through very similar tummy/eating issues. We're hoping and praying it gets better soon. She doesn't vomit anything up because its physically impossible for her to vomit now that she's had the Nissen surgery. That's a good thing, it means there's nothing for her to aspirate. Julianne has a Pediatrician appointment on Tuesday, so we'll definitely be asking him about this. I'll spare you all the details, but we're able to check and see if she's digesting her feedings and she seems to be doing fine with digestion. We're very happy about that!

Julianne has started doing something very cute. She laughs when we laugh. All we have to do is just look at her and laugh (or sometimes not even when we're looking at her) and she'll imitate our laughs! It's very cute! We can never get her to perform on command, so I guess everyone will just have to take our word on it.

Well, thanks for checking in on our 7 month old baby boo! Please continue to keep Julianne in your prayers as we work with her on the feeding issues. Here are just a few more pictures that we took today.

Relaxin' with my daddy
