3 months old!!

Waverly is 3 months old today!!! She celebrated by having her first out-of-the-hospital follow up with the neurologist! (All cool kids celebrate that way, right?!?) (More on that appointment to come.) She is definitely growing, and as of today is a whopping 9 pounds!!! Way to go little girl!

One of her favorite things to do recently is spend time in her bouncy seat and "talk" to the animals that hang on the toy bar. For some reason, when she's in the right mood, she gets so excited to see the animals and will squeal away at them. She's also spent two times in the sling, and liked it pretty well this last time.
These next two pictures are for comparison. The first was taken today, the second was taken the day we brought her home from the NICU, just before she was 1 month old. Can you tell she's grown??
The other night she was sleeping in her bouncy seat, and had her hands just so placed. So cute!
We are also finally being able to put some different outfits on her, now that she's outgrowing her newborn sized clothes. Bring on the 0-3 months! Yay!
A few other facts about our growing girl: She still eats every three hours via g-tube, and is up to 63mL/hour during those day time feeds. We hope to get her up to 65 by the end of the week. She is now up to full feeds during the night, getting 30mL/hour for 10 hours (9p.m.-7a.m.). She has dropped her Reglan medication, and is now just on two meds for reflux (Zantac and Prevacid), and is doing well with that. We still see occasional smiles from her, but are still not quite sure that they are in response to us. She does love to study faces, and will track movements with her eyes, which is great for her! She loves to spend time lounging in her boppy or being held, and enjoys being outside (when it's not too hot!). She has her first cold, which is sad for us! Please pray that she gets over that very soon! She is very loved by her big sister and brother, who love to hold her, lay beside her, and give her kisses. She brings so much joy to those around her. Waverly, we love you!
