Here are some pictures from the past week. Delilah has been introduced to cereal and seems to like it. She makes some funny faces, but she eats it. Her cousins were here last night and this morning and we finally got some pictures of the three of them together. Logan wanted pictures with Delilah.  Enjoy!

5 Months

WOW! 5 months!!! I can hardly believe it. Well, we had an appointment today with the new pediatrician to check her weight and to discuss some of her issues. She now weighs 10 pounds 8 ounces and is 24.5 inches long. Pretty good. She still has a long way to go but she is doing really well. She is getting more active with her toys. She is grabbing at them and bringing them to her mouth. She is also fascinated with her hands. She loves to look at them and suck on them. One day I will catch it on video and post it. (I have pictures I took today that I will post soon. I can't find the card reader.)

Christmas is fast approaching. I am definitely looking forward to it this year with all the babies in the family, especially Delilah's first Christmas. We still have to go out and get decorations (we got rid of most in Alaska), but the gift shopping should be really fun this year. If anyone is wondering about a gift for little Delilah, she is currently a size 0-3 months and it doesn't look like she is going to out grow that anytime soon. Also, the therapist says she may be ready for 'Cause and Effect' toys. Mostly things with lights and sounds that she activates by pressing buttons. And there is always books. She is gonna be a reader like her momma so we need to build her library.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. I am sure there will be plenty of pictures to post after the festivities. There is a lot to be Thankful for this year!

In Our New Home

Well, we have moved into our new home. Thanks to all of you who helped. It is nice to finally have a place of our own. Unfortunately not all of the unpacking is done. If I'm going to be honest, most of the unpacking isn't done. It will definitely be finished by November 22. I don't want Delilah's therapist from Hand In Hand thinking she lives in a dump.

Speaking of Delilah, a few new things to report. First, we have officially started the Growth Hormone Shots every night. She doesn't even seem to notice. I, on the other hand, had a little difficulty with the first few shots, but now I have it down. She doesn't even make a peep when I do it. Such a brave little girl. Second, we finally received the sleep study results. Apparently Delilah has Central Sleep Apnea. According to the doctor when she sleeps she pauses her breathing. Nothing major alarming but it drops her oxygen levels so he has put her on oxygen at night, when she is sleeping. I have asked other PWS mothers about this and it seems pretty common with PWS babies. Doctors can't pin point exactly why they have sleep apnea, but it seems the hypotonia has something to do with it. Delilah is still adjusting to the oxygen, but she is a trooper and soon won't even notice it. We will have to do a sleep study again in a few months. Not looking forward to that, but the doctor said she could grow out of it with age and strength gain. Here's hoping.

And for all of your viewing pleasure, here is a picture of Delilah with her Uncle Lee.

Halloween Pics

We are homeowners now which has led to painting the last three days. Too tired and not much time to Blog so here are some pictures of Delilah's first Halloween to hold you over.
