Wishful Thinking?

Standing on her tiny toothpick legs. Body of a 5.5 month old, calves/feet of a newborn!

We have our first follow up appointment since January next week. She has been in braces 23.5 hours a day for about four months. With spring/summer coming up I keep having wishful thinking thoughts that next week they will tell us she can graduate to naps/overnights only with the braces. But I'm not holding my breath. It would be really nice to have her be brace free during the day, or even just for two hours for pool parties. My son had his braces on 23.5 hours a day until 9 months old, so since baby sister seems to be a clone of her brother I anticipate we will be wearing braces for another three months. Sigh.

Her 3-5 toes are still curling under, in fact pinky#5 is almost gone!

Check out those chubby ankles! LOL! Roll Roll Roll!

New Milestone Report: Only thing I can think of is that she is getting very good and grabbing things and bringing them to her mouth. She will also reach up and hold onto things hanging on her play gym or on the carseat. Must be working on upper body this week! :)

Elimination Communication
We've been a little lazy the past 6 weeks because I had a knee surgery wasn't comfortable sitting/squatting to help her sit on the toilet. We still do it about once a day, but not nearly as diligent as we were in January. She also hasn't been waking up with dry diapers anymore, so I'm not sure what that is all about. We'll continue at our lazy pace because if anything it is keeping her familiar with the purpose of a toilet.
