5 Months!!!!!

After SEVERAL requests to keep the blog going I am getting around to updating everyone. Emma continues to do amazingly well. We had an appt with her pediatrician 3/16 and she was 9lb 14 oz and 20 1/2 inches long which is right on track for her adjusted age. We had her occupational therapy just today and received some really good news... she is developmentally at a 2-2 1/2 month baby level even though her "adjusted age" is only 6 weeks... meaning she should be at a 6 week olds level since her due date was 6 weeks ago. She's hit her 5 months mark this week and we could not be happier to have her home with us!!! She has started to make what mommy calls happy baby sounds- she's cooing and trying to "talk" to us. She has pretty awesome head control now, is able to hold herself up while laying on her tummy, LOVES to stick her tongue in and out like its a game!!! She has a pretty hot temper like her mama and when she gets mad look out!!! Those lungs are working really well!!! Speaking of, we are no longer seeing her lung doctor as we no longer need his services. It feels so great to report that after all of her lung issues they seem to be doing incredibly well. I am so proud of our little miracle baby and so thankful that she looks so good and indeed is exceeding the expectations!!!!! Will keep everyone posted!!!

She HAS grown! Look at her! Praise the Lord for little miracles. She looks much like my 5 did around her age...perfect. ;)

Such another merciful answer to prayer! Thanks for keeping us all posted. I'm sure you're pretty busy with your sweet girl! I really would love to meet her and see you again in person. :)
