8 Months!

8 months old

Izzy is now 8 months old! She is just fantastic, and we’re having so much fun with her. She really loves to eat, and it certainly shows. Her dietician came by today, and my baby girl now weighs 15 pounds 11 ounces! She eats cereal twice a day, gets a fruit or veggie once a day, and drinks four 6-oz bottles a day. We’ll soon increase her food and slowly decrease the bottles. She has tried carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peaches, pears, apples, bananas, and whatever else her Papa has dipped her pacifier in, and she hasn’t turned anything down yet.

In the past week, she has really mastered rolling from her back to belly, and she performs this trick ALL day now! She’s been working so hard on back-to-belly that she has forgotten how to roll from belly-to-back, so she’ll flip to her belly, get tired of it after a few minutes, and start fussing. It’s oh so fun! Let’s see…what else? She can now “stand” only holding onto our hands, and she gets the cutest little smile every time she stands up. She’s also working on sitting up by herself. She’s made a lot of progress in the past week. She still continues to amaze us with each new day, and I’m just blown away at how “normal” she is after all she has been through. The doctor who looked us in the eye and guaranteed us a 100% chance of Izzy having something wrong with her must have something wrong with him!

BTW - I totally missed posting her 7 month picture, so I’m posting it with this entry.
