Reaching milestones!


This little man continues to make me smile every day! Even though I feel like I don't have all the time in the world to dedicate to mommy and baby time, my little boy is growing and developing just on time! Baby D hates tummy time but he loves sitting and watching spongebob! At 12 weeks old, he is holding his head up just fine, he can start to see objects that are across the room, he turns his head side to side, can roll from his side to back, and he sure has found out how to laugh! The only thing I'm having trouble with is getting him to grasp things. I'm not exactly sure what age they start to grab things, but Daylen always has fists (he's not colicky) and never really wants to open them unless he's sleeping or relaxing on someone's lap. He uses his fist to hit things when he's in his swing or bouncer, so I know at least he knows he can touch things with his hands. I'm just going to be patient and hope he starts to be less tense!

Picture day! :) 1 month!

This is Daylen at 7 weeks old (for his 1 month pictures)
He was so alert and wanted to talk to the photographer!

2nd visit with cardiac pediatrician

Daylen had his 2nd routine visit with the cardiac pediatrician since his open heart surgery. Everything is looking great! His SAT levels were 75 and his shunt was looking healthy! He weighed 9lbs 9 oz and the doctor joked about Daylen possibly outgrowing his next surgery! ;)

Daylen is scheduled for another heart catheterization on Feb 8th, 2011. This will help doctors get better pictures of his heart so they can figure out when his 2nd surgery should take place.
