7 months adjusted

Little Miss Minion got her (probably) last synagis shot the other day. It’s a bad season for rsv so they aren’t sure if there will be one more shot this year. We got a new weight for her too: 15 pounds,  1.2 ounces! That’s a little over 8 times her birth weight, in case you were wondering.

She’s got the tiniest little spot of a tooth coming in on the top. It seems to be taking its time to come in, but it’s not bothering her.

She’s a rolling champion and a really good sitter. She sits mostly by herself now, for about 10 minutes at a time. She loves playing with her stackable cups and dolls. She loves to “talk” with us, making noises and then we talk back to her.

She’s so so close to crawling. She can pivot using her hands and arms, but she can’t move forward just yet. Soon…and then she’ll really be mobile and we’ll have to baby proof!

Are we there yet?

Two more months until we can start bringing Little Miss Minion around other people. It’s going to be so strange to be able to go grocery shopping without putting it on a calendar, or being able to run into the store for something without having to plan on someone watching her.

I know she’ll probably be sick all summer from being out among the general population. We will still do our best to prevent that since her lungs won’t have caught up yet, but her immune system will be so much stronger than it was that time last year.

I’m looking forward to showing her off. Hey everyone, look at my warrior baby and see how big and strong she is! See her shunts and know what she has been through. Receive a smile and know that you witness a miracle. Try to touch her and I will rain hell fire down upon you. 🙂  No reason to tempt fate.
