We didn't take Ava's 7 month photo's on Friday as we were travelling for a friend's wedding. Ava is rolling over both ways and wiggling around everywhere, making a mess at bathtime, having big chats, squealing and laughing. She loves her favourite toys and is very very cheeky. Each day our hearts a little fuller and we are so proud of her hitting her milestones.
Sometimes i wonder what life would be like if she didn't come early and how different things might have been when welcoming a new baby and bringing them home, but i really am grateful to have her home with us and healthy. We got through it and came out the other side stronger and more in love.
I am so appreciative of the medical care that Ava and i received while at the Royal Brisbane and Women's hospital from her consultant, the surgeons, doctors, midwives and nurses. These are the people who make the NICU journey bearable. I almost always felt supported and we knew what was happening every step of the way before Ava was born and afterwards in the nursery. Not enough credit is given to the doctors and nurses and no amount of thank you's will be enough.
Im excited for the next few months as we move into our new home, go away for hubbys birthday and celebrate Ava's first Christmas. After such a bumpy start to the year we deserve the good things too 💜 x
Our sweet boy is 8 months old today! Harrison’s hobbies include being held, squealing, gnawing on his hands, sleeping, and being incredible. Our hearts grow more and more each day with the love we have for him. His smile brings us joy and we can’t imagine not knowing him! Thank you, God!
Every day is a new struggle with the urge to actually bite these cheeks. Vivienne has gained loads of weight and now we are going full steam with the tube weaning. We are not allowed to give her more than 40ml per feed via the the tube- she has to learn to satisfy hunger by drinking her milk herself! It hasn’t quite clicked yet and she is HANGRY!!
This has to be one of my favourite outfits so far 💕 I have been waiting such a long time for Eloise to fit into this dress! 😍 Does anyone else feel like their bub has a way better wardrobe than them? 🙈💗😂 We had our nurse visit yesterday and after a big gain of 280g in a fortnight this little lady weighed in at exactly 5x her birth weight at 7 1/2 months old 🙌 🙈 👏 She’s still quite little even for her corrected age but that’s okay, we’ve been tracking along on the same percentile since she came home so Dr Andersen is happy with this 👌
