Emma's 6 Month Dr Appt

Emma went to the pediatrician on Monday for her 6 month appt. She weighed in at 10 lbs 3.5 oz and 22 inches long! Go Emma!

One thing we are concerned about is Em's's really flat on one side. The dr is giving us one month to round it out but if it doesn't improve she will have to go to Vandy for a CT scan and then get fitted for a helmet. I kind of knew this was coming and I'm bummed about it, but what can you do? She told us to try more tummy time (which Em hates) and to try out her exercauser. We tried out the exercauser last night and today and she does good for awhile but she isn't going to sit in it all day. So I'm preparing myself to welcome the wonderful helmet into our family for the next 4-6 months. Blah!

In other news, we will start cereal in approx 2 months unless she starts showing signs of being really hungry before then. The dr was impressed with Em's squealing, holding her head up, grabbing her toys, etc. She's also been acting like she will start rolling soon.

Em's shots were the absolute hardest so far! She cried so hard her face was red/purple and it broke my heart. Poor thing was hungry and tired and I think overstimulated so it wasn't fun. She got 3 shots and one oral vaccination. She won't have to get any at her 9 month appt.

That is all I can think of for now...I'll try to post some pics tomorrow. It's been crazy around here with me starting school and studying and so forth so sorry for the delay. Thanks for reading!

Our BIG Tuesday!

Yesterday we had lots and lots of company! Emma handled being passed around really well. Our visitors included: Granny Scott, Starlena, Kelsey, Jana, Mom, and Tim. Emma just smiled at everyone and we had such a good time! Mom and Tim stayed the night with us and took us out to eat at Longhorn's. The food was awesome!

Emma's Dr. Appt Update

I know her appt was last Friday but I've been lazy about posting an update. Sorry to my wonderful blog readers for being a bad blogger.

Anyways, it was a good appt...she now weighs a whopping 10 lbs 1 oz (with her clothes on)! She is also 21 inches long. As far as the oxygen goes the dr decided not to turn it down b/c she wasn't doing as good as he wanted and with the winter months coming up he said let's just wait. So we go back in October for the RSV shot and to hopefully turn the oxgen down. The dr also said it would be another 3-6 months before she comes off of it. I'm okay with that b/c as long as she's healthy I'm happy! We've adjusted to everything now and it's going to be weird when it's gone.

On a funny note, while we were in the packed waiting room Emma decides to start tooting and man oh man, were they loud! I got tickled and a little embarrassed especially when she started grunting up a storm...and then the smell. Ohhhhh it was bad! The child poops like once a week and what day does she decide to do it? But she was happy as can be!

Now for the pics...

My Little Angel is 6 Months Old!

I can't believe how fast the past 6 months has gone. Before we know it she will be a year old...I'm so sad. :(

Today we are going to the Pulmonologist and I'll update/post pics when we get home!

Diaper Comparison

Here is a comparison shot of the diaper Emma wore in the NICU and her size 1 diaper! Her little NICU diaper was way too big for quite awhile and we use to have to fold it over and tape it so it wouldn't fall off! When I look at this it really reminds me of how far she's come. She was so tiny for so long. Tomorrow we celebrate her 6 month birthday...half way to a year!! I guess I need to start planning her big 1 year birthday party, huh? :)

Our Big Trip to Tracy's

Yesterday we made the trip to see our wonderful friend Tracy. She lives about 5 minutes from us. Anyways, we had a great time and as always she made some peanut butter rice krispies treats. Yes, I hate most of them. :) Thank you Tracy! Max, her dog, got a big kick out of Emma and he didn't want anyone to mess with her. We had so much fun getting out of the house and hopefully we'll start getting out more often. Enjoy the pics!

She likes to eat stuff

We Took Emma to Rosie's!

We took Emma to Rosie's for the first time Thursday night and she did really well. For all of you who don't know what Rosie's is it is THE best mexican restaurant ever and don't forget it. We got a table in the back corner so we had plenty of room with her. It was so nice to get out of the house and join the real world. Thanks Betsy for the treat!

My wonderful little brudders left early this morning and I miss them already! I don't see them very often since they live in Houston and I love it that they got to see Emma. They were so great with her. I was so impressed! I think they also realized just how boring a day in the Titsworth house is!

Me & my boys...we are a good looking family!

Look how hot my Georgie is!
