Helmets: The boys' heads look so much better! Andrew only has to wear his part of the day now. His banding will for sure be complete in only 3 more weeks! Adam still has to wear his most of the day but not quite as rigidly. Originally they told us he would be in the helmet for many months but he might be done in 3 weeks too depending on how it looks then. They are amazed at how fast his head improved. It has been exactly 2 months since we started the cranial banding, it really hasn't been bad at all like I worried it might be. I'm so glad we were able to do this for them!
Weights: Our nutritionist came today for a visit and we now have a 20-pounder in the house!! That's right, Adam is now 10 times his birth weight!!! Praise God for his many blessings! Andrew is also gaining pretty well, he weighed in at 16 lbs 15oz. We had weaned him off the karo but they want us to put him back on it even though he is eating great these days. Now that he is getting more and more active he is burning more calories and so the karo will help him make up the difference. Both boys had a really good length growth spurt and are now both right about 27 inches!!
Neurology: Andrew has his 6 month neurology appointment this Thursday at Texas Children's. I can't believe it's already been six months since the last time we were there. I think/hope the doctor will be pleased with his development but these types of checkups always make me nervous. Hopefully we'll get good news. No matter what, he has already surpassed many of the things that were predicted for him. He is such a joy to my heart, I simply cannot imagine life without him. He's perfect to me just the way he is, I'm so very proud of my little fighter.
