6th Month Amazement

There aren't any HumBUGS here!

Today Lainey had her 6 month check up with Dr. Onal at Pediatric Associates. He is totally amazed with her health, feats, and accomplishments! His amazement made me feel as though I was receiving the highest honor anyone could ever get recognition for! I wish everyone could have been in the office with me, for it is with the aid of numerous people that Lainey has continued to do so well.

The Christmas Bug!

As of today, Lainey weighs 15 lbs. 7 oz. (45th percentile), 26 3/4 inches long (85th percentile), and her head circumference is 17 1/2 (95th percentile)! In looking at the growth chart, Lainey is moving in the right direction ~ UP! Her lungs sounded clear and everything looked wonderful. Dr. Onal is confident that she is physically developing fine, but may be a little behind due to her month-long hospitalization. Mentally, all seems perfect (Duh, look at the size of her is holding a BIG brain!!) We are blessed to have such a "perfect" baby girl! Our Lainey Bug makes Cystic Fibrosis look Good!

Friday I will be going back to the doctor. One only knows what tests or meds they will put me through this time, but hopefully something will help with finding the cause of my aliments.

With the Christmas season all around us, my camera is sure to use several dozen AA batteries! Keep checking back for pictures, as I will post pictures regularly.

Thank you with "enzymes on top" for all of your thoughts, prayers, words of encouragement, and generosity! We love you!
Love Always,

The Smithsons
