Doctor and Children's Museum

Avery went to the dr yesterday for her 4 month check up. She now weighs 6 lbs 14 oz (a gain of 1 whole lb in 2 weeks!) and is 18 1/2 inches long. She got 2 shots and 1 oral vaccine, and her heel was pricked for bloodwork. Once again the dr was pleased with her growth and I got a call today that bloodwork showed levels moving in the right directions so no change in her formula feedings and vitamins for now. We also got the ok to get rid of her home monitor, yay! Her next Dr appointment will be in a month and she goes to the NICU follow up clinic in a couple of weeks.

Caroline and I went to the Children's Museum last Saturday after Travis' plans for taking her to the Dixie Deer Classic were postponed. We had a great time, and she had fun Sunday too!

Just stuff

Avery is continuing to thrive at home. We loaded her in the stroller to enjoy the warm weather outside Sunday.
This is Caroline at supper the other night. When I sat down to eat, she very seriously told me that she had taken all the sausage off her pizza because she's alergic to them! Not sure where she heard that, or a lot of other things she says now that I think about it.

And her truck has been a bigger hit than I could've ever imagined. She and caitlin filled up the back of the truck with lots of stuff from our garage the other day to take on their "campout" in the cul de sac.
We've been working with caroline to get her sleeping in her bed all night all by herself again. She used to do this fine but got out of the habit back when I was in the hospital. Candy has been a good source of bribery, each time she sleeps in her bed all night she can pick out some candy to eat in the morning before breakfast. Worked like a charm the first few nights, then one night she announced her tummy hurt and she didn't want candy, she just wanted to sleep in our bed. Oh well, we're getting closer!
