growing girl


Now, about that growth spurt:  Since Anniston's Aorta had narrowed so much (to one millimeter) before her cath, she was burning a considerable amount of calories and not gaining weight at the rate that she would have been without the narrowing.  SO, now that her Aorta is 7 millimeters wide, she isn't having to work as hard and has put on TWO whole pounds in the last month!  That's big time for her!!

With all of this energy, she's been waking up a good bit in the night (happy, happy, joy, joy), and that drive coupled with all of the load-bearing tummy-time we've been doing to strengthen her right arm has enabled Anniston to roll over a few times lately!

Do you see the highwaters above???  I thought she'd be able to wear this outfit through winter!

Now, take note of the cheeks.  Enough said.

Here's a close-up of those puppies.

Happy five months and a few days growing girl.
