Happy 3 Months

Time seems to be flying by, Kaitlyn is now a little over 3 months old and is doing great. We had a couple issues with her incision in the last month, she had a stitch abscess. Essentially had a reaction to the stitches they used on the under part of the incision. A red bump had formed on her back and then had a small opening that ended up with some pus in it. We took her in and they gave her some antibiotics and after 3 checks she was fine. So we're just taking extra care in washing it and keeping it clean. As of right now we do not have to go back to UAB until October for her 3 month baseline mri and renal ultrasound.

Overall, she seems to be hitting milestones as most babies. She has the cutest smile ever, but I can not seem to capture it on camera lol. Every single time I bring out the camera, she stops smiling. One of these days I'll be able to show you! She's cooing and "talking" back to us and even laughs on occasions, that's the sweetest sound ever!

Sleeping has gotten better, most times she is up around midnight or so to eat and then again anywhere from 4 to 6 am. I am looking forward to a full night sleep, hopefully soon.  Once she starts sleeping through the night regularly, we'll move her into H's room.

Here is a few pictures of Miss Kaitlyn

  1. What a doll!! We have the same swing. :) Lucky you, almost sleeping through the night!

  2. She sure is a cutie! Love these pics and the surgery ones! I didn't expect the incision to be so long, poor baby! I'm sure you're glad that the surgery part is over!

  3. I can't wait to that day Jill lol :)

    Thanks D! Yep it was longer than I expected too, but it looks so much better now. I need to take a photo and post it too. Maybe tomorrow.

  4. She is so stinkin' cute! I love that last pic you posted of her...looking so alert and content!
    I, like D, had no idea that her scar was so long...wow....I am so glad that the surgery is behind you and everything turned out wonderful!

  5. Thanks girls :)

    I really hope the "worst" is behind us, but only time will tell.
