Happy 10 month birthday to Brianna.....amazing, yes? Bri now weighs 16 lbs., rolls over from stomach to back easily and from back to stomach occasionally, we're working on building her upper body strength. She continues to eat solid foods by mouth and practices drinking from a sippy cup. It seems like everyday she is doing something new from focusing on a particular object, giggling when we tickle her, reaching and playing with her toys. These are big accomplishments for a baby with Trisomy 18. She brings so much joy to our family.
She hasn't been sick except for a couple of colds that lasted the normal 7-10 days and right now there is so much pollen in the air here, she has a bit of hayfever. What a sweet baby girl.
