Here are Katie's pictures from she had taken on Friday. She did such a great job! We are so lucky to have kids that like the camera. The large picture and the picture just above the pink picture in the corner were my choices for the packages I bought. All of the pictures on the this page were my favorites but I limited myself to only two packages :)
Katie had her two month well child visit today, she did so good. She is 13 pounds 6 ounces, 24 inches long, and her head circumference was 16 inches. She was in the 90th percentile for her height and weight and the 50th-75th percentile for her head circumference. I looked at the doctor and said 'Are you sure she's my child, 90th percentile for length?!" Wonder if she will stay on the tall side, wouldn't that be nice for her. I always wanted to be taller.
She has to see an opthamologist because her left eye is slightly crossed and her doctor wanted to make sure if there is anything we need to do to correct it, it gets done as early as possible. I agree, earlier the better.
All in all she had a great doctor appointment. She received 3 shots and only fussed for a minute. By the time I picked her up she was done! She is a tough little girl.

Today Katie and I had our pictures taken together. With each of the girls I have taken a Mommy and me picture all of them when they were 2 months old.
It was quite funny at the beginning of getting our pictures taken because the photographer was tying to get Katie to look at her and all she would do is look at me and smile. It was so darn cute!
Eventually she did look up at we got some great pictures of the two of us and of her individually. I'll post them tomorrow. She did a really great job, the photographer was really impressed with how well she was smiling already.
I had my picture taken with my mother at around the same age and I'm so glad to have it. I hope my girls cherish their picture with me and much as I cherish mine with my mom. :)

Kylie and Lacey love to play with Katie. Kylie is constantly asking to hold her so she can play and talk with her.
Lacey is beyond thrilled when Katie smiles at her. She gets all excited and says 'Mommy, Katie 'miled' at me!" And if she just happens to coo at Lacey, Lacey is over the moon. She says 'Mommy her likes me!"
Kylie is absolutely convinced that she has taught Katie how to kick her feet and move her arms in the air. The first time it happened couldn't believe she could 'learn' so fast!
It's so much fun to watch the ways Kylie and Lacey play with Katie. And Katie gets so excited to see either of them, her eyes light up when they come near her. It's beautiful!

It has been exactly a week since we started potty training Lacey. She is doing awesome! I am so grateful/lucky to have kids that potty train so easy. From the very first day she seemed to take to it like she's been doing it forever. She has at the most one accident a day. We are so proud of her.
It's nice to know that I will only have to buy diapers for one! If I had known she would train so easy I would have done it MUCH earlier. :)
Great job Lacey, Mommy and Daddy are proud of you!

So today I took Katie back to the Doctor for a follow-up chest x-ray, and it was CLEAR! It's amazing to me the difference ONE week makes. Dr C showed me last weeks x-ray and it was terrible. I'm actually pretty glad he didn't show it to me at the time it would have scared the heck out of me! Somethings are best unknown. :)
So thankful for a great Doctor and the hospital staff that took such great care of us.

Today I took Katie to see Dr. C for her post discharge appointment, and guess what!? Not only did Katie have pneumonia, type A influenza but she also tested positive for RSV too! Dr. C said he is amazed that at six weeks old and having everything she had that she didn't end up having to stay longer in the hospital I'm just glad that it was caught early.
We have to go back on Monday for a chest x-ray. Dr. C would like the radiologist to compare the two x-rays and hopefully we will see major improvement. I can tell just by how she sounds she is a lot better than she was last Monday. She still has a bad cough but the nurse at the hospital told me she would probably have it for quite a while. Poor baby...

This is picture perfect, and also the reason we are outta here! Miss Katie's oxygen level has stayed above 90% (the 100 is her oxygen level) for the last 24 hours without any help from additional oxygen. The nurse only suctioned out her nose once (which she very much hates) so Dr. C said he feels confident that Katie is ready to go home.
I will be taking her back for a follow-up appointment on Friday and hopefully get good news. We are still waiting on the results from the RSV test that was done on Monday. Hopefully Dr. C will have the results on Friday.

The doctor stopped by this morning at 5:45 am. Yes, 5:45 am. Normally, that would have annoyed me had I not already been up since Katie didn't sleep well at all last night. She got up this morning at 4:30 and stayed up until 7:00! Dr. C says we will be staying at least one more night just to make sure she remains stable. She only needed her oxygen once last night, so the Dr. is very encouraged by that.
Hopefully we will be able to go home tomorrow. Greg and Aunt Neo need to go back to my in law's town for my beautiful mother in law's Celebration of Life on Thursday. I believe Kylie will be going with them, Lacey and I will stay at home with Katie since she will be too sick to make the 5 hour trim.
Greg and Aunt Neo are taking care of the other 2 girls at home. Kylie is at school and Lacey is enjoying some Aunt Neo time :)
