We went to her 9 month baby well check-up today! It seems our little girl is still growing off the charts!
She is 23.5 pounds and 30.5 inches! Holy cow! She is over 2.5 feet tall!
I spoke to her doctor about her mil allergy, he advised that I would keep her on her special formula even after shes one year old. He said try again to introduce milk in 6 months. I tried about a month or two ago and it was a disaster, a bad rash and the worst diarrhea you could imagine. I hope she grows out of it soon! She likes yogurt and cheese but they dont like her!
She is changing by the day now I find. She is waving good-bye consistently now! She is still shaking her head no! She says Mama and Dada and baba! She really loves filling up buckets or bins with stuff and then dumping it all out. She just loves my cats.
She doesnt sleep thru the night anymore, she always requires a 3am bottle now. She is good about going back to sleep.
She has 5 teeth now! They are so cute!
She doesnt eat as much solid food as she once did. She loves spagetti, potatoes, pasta, bologna( i know weird), she loves all fruits and veggies, fruits all over anything. She gobbles up berries and melons. She is eating more formula now, she is eating sometimes more than 40 oz a day plus 3 meals, doc said its fine. He said he isnt worried about what she is eating, she so big ;-)
I have been long awaiting the top central teeth. She has been teething, gnawing and drooling for the longest time, months I think, I kept thinking i seen signs of them, but I guess I didnt. The lateral incisor ( beside the front tooth) has emerged. She has been cranky and runny nose and just miserable! That explains it! I wonder when the central incisors will come? In 2 weeks Shelby will be 9 months!! 9 months!! Can you believe it????? Wow has the time flown. She now says DADDY! How cute!!! She has just learnt it and is her new word of obsession, she says Daddy all day long! Dennis' heart is melting! :-)
On the siblling front, I know I promised to let you know how it was going! Well its just about done, I forgot to tell you! Tomorrow morning, we go in for our embryo transfer! We are transferring 2 fertilized day 3 embryos. Then the dreaded 2 week wait! I should be able to start my HPTs on June 13, how fitting, its my bday!!
Its been a long journey getting to here. Our little miracle angel didnt come easy. After struggling with infertilty, alot of heartache and tears, we did IVF. We are so grateful to the Ottawa Fertility Centre and all of their doctors! We were successful at our first attempt! Shelby truly is a miracle, a gift from a higher power!
