This has been a good week so far for milestones. Little Miss Minion rolled from stomach and back over her left arm the other day, and tonight she rolled from her back to her stomach! Theoretically, she could roll around the house now, if she wanted to. She’s also gotten really fussy with her bottles in the last couple of days, and since her fontanel feels fine, we are thinking that she needs the next size up in bottle nipples. The pediatrician told us in December that we could start her with a sippy cup, but she hasn’t really been ready for it until now. So this weekend, I’ll be buying size 3 bottle nipples and some sippy cups!
We’re still working with her on consonants. I sing the Star Wars theme to her with all B sounds, and she likes to hear it but she won’t repeat it yet.
It is Appointment Central over here. She has an MRI and neurosurgeon follow up (the first one we will have made it to, since she kept having shunt issues). She has her Synagis shot. She’s got her six month follow up NICU visit. She gets physical therapy once a week. Sometime soon, she needs to see her pediatric opthomologist, an audiologist, her pediatric neurologist (different from her neurosurgeon), and she’s got another pediatrician check up in there somewhere.
It’s a good thing I have such a good memory. 🙂
