Atlanta and back, cereal and a sippy cup

We had a long day today. Avie had to go for her post op in Atlanta, we made the appt for 11:45 so we could just get up and make the drive, having to stop and feed her it takes about 4 1/2 hours. So we get there at about 11:15, they call us back at 11:45 and we are back in the car by 12:03.....Dr Williams said everything looks great, she has one little stitch in the back that should dissolve anytime. We will go back when she is 12-14 months old to meet with Dr Riski who is over the speech part of the clinic, we will also see Dr Williams again.

Now for the pics....

This is Amelia before school this morning. When we saw our Pediatrician last week she said go ahead and start cereal, baby food and a sippy cup once we were cleared from surgery.....so tonight we did. She LOVED the cereal ate it up as fast as she could and very neatly!!

Amelia wanted a turn feeding her. She could not get the spoon in her mouth fast enough, Avie had to dive for it.





So we then tried the sippy cup, she did ok, I think she is still going to have to work on the suction part. Until she gets better we will still have to use the Habermanns......of course they are usually attached to a larger bottle since they only hold 5 ounces.


Also....her hair is falling out.....badly. I kept telling Donald that just happens to some babies, she has a clear bald spot on the back of her head, I ran my fingers down it today and had quite a few hairs in my hand. So Donald asked the Dr about it and he said it could be her bodies way of reacting to change and the surgery. I told Donald she was just trying to look more like him, considering he keeps shaving his head much to mine and Amelias protests!!!!!

Adorable pictures! Amelia is such a big helper. So glad Avie's surgery is behind her. We have a great deal to be thankful for. XO

So did you have to wait to use the sippy cup after the palate surgery because of her palate? I've been wondering if Aidan will be able to use one.

Such a big girl!! That's great she liked the cereal! I think I need one of those Bumbo trays. Amelia's such a good big sis, too. : ) I'll be wondering how baby food goes!
