7 months!

Ripley turned 7 months on the 29th.  Everything is still going well.  She met with Dr. B. and she weighed 12 lbs 7 oz.  Still a peanut, but she's is growing.  Ripley is eating like a champ and sweet potatoes are her favorite.  She has been working on crawling for a few weeks now.  She's almost there and has definitely mastered belly surfing!  Look out because she's on the move.  Dylan is the best big brother and loves his baby sister.  I'm sure that will all change soon when Ripley starts taking his toys!  Ripley's belly looks great.  I took some pictures but it's kind of hard to see.  It is healing very well and Dr. Kim did a great job.  So far Ripley is happy, healthy and has quite a personality. 


Best buddies!

I can sit by myself...
for a few seconds anyway.

wow, 6 months already!

It's been a busy 2 months.  Ripley is as active and happy as ever.  She had her 6 month checkup and once again got a thumbs up.  She's up to 25.5 inches long but only 11 lbs 12 oz.  She's our little peanut!  The doctor is not really concerned about her weight because she's growing. We will check her weight in a month and see how she's doing.  We went to the cardiologist last week and they did an EKG.  They did not hear any problems with her heart and think the holes have closed up.  We will do an eco on her heart in a year to make sure they are closed.  Ripley is now on solid foods and is doing well.  She's also rolling over, trying to sit up and babbling like crazy.  She'll be crawling before we know it!  Here are some pictures from the last 2
