Catching Up

Wow! It's been a LONG LONG LONG time since I've updated our family blog. Life got busy and I just kept putting it off. That being said, I don't want to skimp on family updates because someday I will regret not keeping this updated. Let's see since January.... -We discovered Bella has some food allergies--specifically to gluten and dairy. We are hopeful that we can reintroduce dairy into her diet in small amounts so that she has an easier time with things but gluten is no longer a part of our household. -Bella had surgery at the beginning of May to get her adenoids out and ear tubes put in. The surgery went very well and she has been healthy since. -Madelyn is growing SO SO FAST! We had some rough winter months. She got RSV in March and spent 2 nights in the hospital again. Then, in April, she got another really nasty cold from Bella (thank you preschool) but she is resilient! At her 6 month appointment which was May 20, she was in the 25th percentile for everything and doing perfectly. She is still exclusively breastfed. We *just* gave her her first bite of solid food a few days ago-- banana. She didn't swallow anything but she did seem to like the taste! She is sitting up now and already cracked her first tooth-- on the bottom. I can't believe how fast time has gone.
