Well I know I am late in updating but here goes...Her 6 month checkup went well. She is 13lbs 14 oz and 26 and 1/4 inches tall. Dr. Bonnett said she looks great and to keep doing what we are doing. Next Dr appt is with her cardiologist in Dec.

So we have been dealing with some firsts here lately. She is now holding her bottle on her on when she feels like it. Yesterday she rolled over from her back to her tummy to her back and she did it 3 times! This is an accomplishment since she HATES being on her stomach. We were so proud of her!
Next up is getting ready for Halloween then getting ready for Gramma and Grampa Friedel and Uncle Tommy to come for the Palmetto Hearts Golf Tournament and Thanksgiving. Jeannette, Marc, Lexi and Jack are also coming as well as John's Uncle Kevin, Aunt Kim, Zach and Mason. There is going to be around 19 people at Mom's for Thanksgiving. It should be fun.

6 Months Old

I can't believe that Lorelei is 6 months old today! It just seems like yesterday...well you know the rest. She's starting to hold her own bottle when she wants to and has even rolled onto her belly but quickly rolls back over to her back. When she's on her back she is starting to lift her head up so she looks like she's doing a crunch. Her abs are going to look great :O)

We have a 6 month check up on Tuesday so I will let you in on that on Tuesday. She gets more shots. Yeah!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.

So I forgot to add this pic from the Night at the Museum with Palmetto Hearts. Aunt Jan and Uncle Mark thought that Lorelei needed her name really BIG! Thats Meemaw and Uncle Mark on the right playing at the water table at the CHILDREN'S Museum :O)

So Lorelei and I drove to Columbia this morning to go to the Pulmonologist to get the shot to prevent RSV. He said that we didn't need it since her Heart Defect was repaired and she's not on any medicine and doesn't have any lung problems. He said that she was at no greater risk then any other child to get RSV. So we are doing what we can to prevent illness, like washing hands etc. Dr. Brown (the Pulmonologist) said that he would send a note to her pediatrician and explain but if Dr. Bonnett (pediatrician) thinks she needs it, its not too late for her to get it.

We want to wish our buddy William a Happy Birthday! He turned 1 on Monday! I can't believe that he is already 1. Time flies.

We also wanted to ask for prayers for Baby Gracie as she flew up to Heaven this morning. She had HLHS. Please pray for her family as they go through this time.
