1 Month Update

Addison is 1 month old already. I can hardly believe it and she is growing like crazy. We went to Scottish Rite for her consultation with the surgeon for her cleft palate on Friday. Everything went wonderful and she is doing great. She is eating well and gaining weight as she should. The surgery will be done at 6 months and she should only need 1 surgery. They will most likely put tubes in her ears during that surgery as well so we can minimize the the ear infections, which will be a great. She weighs 8lbs, 13 oz and is 20.5 inches. She has gained a little over a pound and grown an inch. She is currently in the 25th percentile, which is good for a cleft palate baby. Addison and I have been on numerous lunch dates so she can meet all her new friends. She is starting to make lots of sounds and smiling more and more each day. Until next time...

There's a little side smile

She's not real sure about the camera yet, she'll get used to it!!!

Our trip to Scottish Rite for her consultation, she was an angel.

We didn't make it to church, but we streamed live and Addison was full of praises!

One Month old...

Addison is growing and changing so quickly...

Addison is growing and changing so quickly, I can hardly believe it. She is 2 1/2 weeks old and already lifting her head off the pillow and is super alert and makes great eye contact. As most everyone knows, Addison was born with a cleft palate and feeding has been our biggest concern. We are happy to say that her Dr.'s appt. went wonderful on Friday and she is eating as much as a normal newborn which is a godsend. She is such a wonderfully tempered baby, we couldn't ask for more. Now once she sleeps longer than 4 hours, she will be PERFECT. LOL! Addison has her first date with Grey Lingerfelt tomorrow and hopefully we'll have some pictures to post.
Until next time, XOXO, Addison, Mommy and Daddy
