Teag's biggest issue right now is her weight. After having the flu and throwing up for almost a week she lost close to 1/2 a pound. I was heartbroken to hear that after all of our hard work over the last few months. She weighed in around 14 1/2 lbs and is currently 9 1/2 months old. I think that puts her around the 0% for her weight/age. The good news is that since recovering from that bug last week, she's really turned a corner in what she can eat now without gagging. We're doing solids 2-3 times a day now plus 4 daytime bottles and 2 at night. (yes, I'm still feeding her twice at night!) Teag all out refuses baby food most of the time lately so I've just been giving her part of what we're eating. Her latest favs are chunks of avocado, banana, sweet potato, nutrigrain bars, and lots of crackers and cereal. We've also started introducing some yogurt and bites of cheese and she's handling it really well. (I was worried after her issues with breastmilk and needing hypoallergenic formula) She's not too fond of juice but loves her water in a sippy cup at meal time. We're hoping she starts putting that weight back on soon!
Here she is with a mouth full of pasta, so happy!

Teag was supposed to receive her 2nd round of synagis shots on friday, but after arriving at the clinic we found out that our insurance company never shipped the medicine. She has to get it within 28-30 days of her last dose or she is no longer immune to RSV so we're headed back on monday to try again.
We've been spending alot of family time together at home lately trying to get everyone healthy and tonight we had a little family pizza party. Gav loves when we order pizza and Teag enjoyed chewing on her breadstick while she watched Gavin entertain. Then it was bathtime, stories, and bed!
Gav loves to climb inside T's little baby tub when they're in the bath together!
