We had a pretty busy weekend. Julianne went to her first concert/festival on Saturday. We went to ShoutFest, which is a Christian music festival, at Zephyr field. Kent was really excited to see a band that he's liked for a long time and we were happy to go with him. :) Julianne did great riding around in her backpack carrier when we were walking around and hanging out on the blanket with us when we were sitting. She had absolutely no problem falling asleep in her backpack carrier even with all of the loud music and people. She's such a content and easygoing baby! Here are some pictures and a short video from the day:
On Sunday, we went to the LPCF picnic. It was nice to see some of our heart family friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while. Julianne enjoyed the baby spacewalk, releasing the balloons and seeing another baby. It was a great day. They really made it special. Julianne was dressed in her costume as a New Orleans Saints cheerleader.
Julianne also made 13 months on Sunday, the 19th and as a very special treat she has a cold! For Julianne a cold is a little more than a cold. A cold includes gagging, retching and vomiting all day and for a good part of the night. I can only guess that because she's so sensitive in the gagging department that the slightest bit of drip down her throat sets the whole thing in motion. We elevated one end of her mattress otherwise she'd gag all night long. So, its just like old times! I don't know if you remember the pictures of her in her elevated crib when she was 0-7 months, but its like that...but no tucker sling. I tuck a big towel into the crib just like a sheet. The texture of the towel keeps her from sliding to the bottom of the crib. So, between the vomiting, snot and Julianne opening her own g-tube button or disconnecting her feeding during her sleep we've had at least one vomit/formula soaked load of laundry per day. She seems to be moving along though. Her eyes were not nearly as runny today and she's gagging a little less. She also slept all the way through the night. Her O2 saturations have been fine and it seems to just be a cold right now.
Finally, I'll leave you with a video of our crazy dancer dancing to a musical birthday card playing "Mr. Roboto." Just a brief explanation, she really gets into it at first, then she thinks she hears a dog....(that sound she's making is barking, by the way)
