Right on Track!

Nora had her 9 month check up yesterday (even though she’s closer to 10 months) and got an A+! Dr. Ness was extremely pleased with how well she’s doing in all areas, growing, eating, mental development. She’s in the 90th percentile for length and weight and in the 50th for head circumference. We could not be happier with Nora’s progress! :) Her TPN rate was dropped earlier in the week and she has been tolerating the decrease very well and her blood sugar has been staying stable.

Nora had her first bite of oatmeal on Sunday and loves it! We cook her organic oats and blend them up. She’s still eating her squash and rice porridge as well. We tried sweet potatoes a few weeks ago but they were giving her diarrhea so we’re holding off on them for now and will try them again when she’s a little older. Her digestive system seems to really like the oatmeal and it hangs out in her intestines for a long time and makes for nice thick poopies. Since her system seems to like oats the next new food we’ll try is Cheerios. We’re excited to give her finger foods with a new texture and I’m sure her new teeth will enjoy munching on them.

    I am so excited about Nora’s weight gain and decreasing TPN!!! She is such an amazing little girl! She has good genes—look at her amazing parents! I can’t wait to see her again!
