Whad up, sucka.

Sunday, March 2, 2008

I'm back after busy days of being sick again, caring for my sick husband, working, and, throughout, getting Caroline to all her appointments and caring for her.

Anyway, as you can see, C has a Dum-Dum in her mouth! That's because her speech therapist recommended it as a way to stimulate her mouth's sensitivity. Because she has a G-Tube and eats nothing by mouth right now, she is at risk for getting an oral aversion (not comfortable with eating or touch in and around her mouth) because she may have a hard time associating the mouth with getting rid of hunger. So we give her the sucker to help her learn that eating is a good thing!

I have a vcute video of her sucking on the lollypop - the site isn't allowing me to upload it for some reason. Once I fix whatever's going on, I'll upload it, so be on the lookout.

Latest numbers:
C is now 17 pounds 11.5 ounces and 27 1/2 inches long. She continues to hug the edge of the typical growth curve.

  1. It looks like Caroline likes it! She is really getting some chubby cheeks and is definitely a cutie! I love her eyes and beautiful skin! Glad to hear you are feeling better, Erika, and hope Bryce is on the mend! Love, Aunt Kris
