As we prepare to say "good-bye", a few updates on Bella...
-She is crawling well, and pulling up. She can stand while holding onto something for a few moments.
-She has gained about two pounds since she has been home...she now weighs 17 pounds. This makes me feel better...I thought my arms were just getting tired.
-She is still in size 3-6 month clothing, but I expect she will be moving onto size 6-9 month clothing very soon.
-She has extremely sensitive skin, always. Just like her mom. But on Saturday, she broke out in a case of the hives, which the pediatrician believes is due to a cold virus. She has been sneezing quite a bit, but no snotty, runny nose. Yet.
-She does not like laying on her back. At all.
-We still haven't been able to get her to eat solid foods yet, regardless of whether we give her control or take the lead. We had her evaluated, and they confirmed that she was a tough case. Very orally defensive with food, although she loves to mouth toys. We were told to expect it to take a while, but to keep trying. And so, we will.
-Her 5th and 6th teeth are coming in.
-The theory that CCAA chooses children for adoptive parents in part by looking at the parents' photos is completely shot. This kid is just too damn good looking,
Thanks for the understanding regarding the need for me to take my blogging activities private. I have begun to receive email requests. Bear with me, as it will probably take me a week or so to get up and running with the new blog.
