This is my little Taylor-cakes. She is such a sweet girl and a very good baby. She is 5 months old now! I can't believe it. It doesn't feel like it's been that long. Taylor had a bit of a rough start in life. She had been trying to be born for months, and in May, she just couldn't take it anymore! She decided to come 2 months ahead of schedule. She came into this world very quietly. Her entire head, down to her collarbone, was bruised. Taylor had to be in the hospital for a few weeks. She started with an oxygen tent to help breathe, then she had to do phototherapy. Thinking back, it's funny how excited I was when they took out her IV's and put in a feeding tube. . .It meant she was making progress, and that's all that mattered.
We had our check-up with the pediatrician this week. Taylor weighed 14 lbs 5 ounces! She's in the 75% bracket for her length and weight, and her head is ever so big (just like the rest of us!) She's doing great and we're so thankful for all the doctors and nurses who took care of our baby girl.
Happy 5 months girlfriend! I love you!
