Megan Grace

A few months ago I wrote about Megan Grace. You can learn more about Megan's story by clicking on the Megan's Matey's logo on the left. Miss Megan joined the other angels in heaven today and my heart is just breaking for her mom and dad. I met her parents just a few months ago and they are 2 very nice people and I can't imagine what they are going through right now. So, even thought you don't know them, please just add Megan, Amber, and Steve to your prayer lists.

5 months old

It's so hard to believe another month has gone by. I've been so busy the last few weeks so I haven't had much time to update the blog. Aubrey has been as busy as ever and getting bigger by the minute. I got on the scale with her to try and weigh her and she is a little over 14 pounds. She has almost doubled her birth weight, which is crazy. Right now we are working on her sitting up. It really worries me that she may be getting a slight flat spot on the back of her head because the day care lets her lay down too much. So, she sits a lot in the Bumbo and in her jumperoo at home, which she loves. She is becoming so much more playful, now. She loves to chew everything she gets hands on and she has started grabbing anything, necklaces, shirts, dog hair. She loves watching the dogs and will ignore everything else when one of them walks by. In just a few weeks, we will be starting solids which I hope helps slow down the milk drinking a little bit. She is drinking close to 36 ounces a day, which is a lot of milk.

Milestones of the month:
* Finally outgrew all 0-3 month clothes.
* Moved up to size 2 diapers
* Improving on her motor skills- she can pass a toy back and forth between her hands and grabs it when she drops it
* Talks (ok, babbles) a lot
* Her new favorite game is drop the toy on the floor and let mommy and daddy grab it, repeat
* Her favorite small toy is her noisy Pooh cloth book and her favorite big toy is her jumperoo

Our little munckin will be 6 months old in just a few weeks, which is amazing and sad all at the same time. She is getting so big but it still seems like yesterday we were bringing her home.

1st school picture

Aubrey's day care took pictures on her 4 month birthday so I decided I had to buy them no matter what. The photographer had a hard time getting a good shot but when she finally did, it was precious! I was so excited to see them today when I went to pick her up and here is the result:
