Britta is such a good little girl. We went to Paige's 2 1/2 year wellness check at the doctor's the other day and Britta was wide awake in her carseat the whole time and barely made a peep (until the end when she just couldn't take the waiting any more). The doctor even commented what a good baby she was for being so patient.
On March 7, we headed to Seattle for our fifth visit to Seattle Children's Hospital. Britta met with a specialist there we hadn't seen before, who we were hoping would be "the one" to give us some kind of idea of what's going on with Britta. But, he ended up being a dud and super unhelpful. On the bright side, we met with a new occupational therapist who is awesome and made some new hand braces for Britta right there on the spot. In fact, she made two sets-- one for day time usage and the other to help position her fingers at nighttime in a curved over position (a position she can't make very well on her own). She also taught us some new tummy time maneuvers to help strengthen her neck and torso a bit more.
- XX lbs. (93rd percentile)
- XX tall (>99th percentile)
- XX" HC (>99th percentile)
Sleeping: Still sleeps better than Paige. I often have to go wake her up in the mornings so we can get on with our day and get out of the house to take Marin to preschool, go to the gym, or whatever other random errands we have to run in the mornings.
Wearing: 3-6 months, 6 month clothes
Things I Don't Want to Forget/Interesting tidbits:
- Poor little thing has an off-the-charts sized head. The specialist we saw in Seattle was so concerned he came in and measured mine and Isaac's head to see where we stood on the charts. Mine is normal. Isaac's is in the ninetieth percentile. Runs in the family. :)
- Usually always happy, smiling, making cute noises and recently has added laughing to her routine. I guess it’s true that fat babies are always the happiest.
