Happy 5 months my lady!
Mabel's appointment went well yesterday. Her pediatrician agreed with all of my concerns, noticing that she wasn't following me and seemed to be smiling at nothing in particular. He said that by 5 months she should be following the kids, focusing, reaching for toys, etc. However, I know that not all children develop at the same pace. I have never put Mabel in the same bracket as the redheads--she is a very different girl!
So our next step is to see the opthamologist who will take a deeper look into her eyes and to rule out a vision problem. She will also be seen by an 'early intervention specialist' who will gauge her development from now until she is a year old. Because she is meeting all of her other milestones, she could just be visually delayed. It happens.
So we begin the journey of prayer for our little lady. Knowing that God heals, we proceed to the throne with confidence that our baby will see and focus perfectly very soon! Thank you Lord!
*Aunt Rachel and Harper are still here. Things are good with them.
* We switched Mabel from her giant soothie binky to another binky by the same company. They're called gumdrops and you can find them here. I totally recommend them. They are smaller and come in many colors which makes them much cuter! Love Love Love!
*I head to the Dr for my tailbone today. More to follow.
Love you all for your friendship, concern and patience in our lives. You fulfill me in so many ways, friends.
9 days til Christmas!!!
