SarahAnne went in for her six month check up this morning...what a big girl she is! She weighs 16 pounds and 6 ounces already! She has nearly doubled her birth weight and is in the 75th percentile for her age :) She is 26.25 inches long...she has gotten six and a half inches longer since birth! She's a beast! Her six to nine month pants are starting to get short on her. She's going to be a long legged girl I think. The doctor was quite pleased at how well she is doing physically. She is ahead of herself when it comes to crawling and scooting...we are in trouble now!
Gabriel had a physical therapy appointment today. He is going on Thursday to have a cast put on his right leg to help stretch out the tendon. *sigh* He is going to be casted for four to six weeks (hopefully!) and will do some serious physical therapy and wear orthodics again after the casting is done. The alternative to casting is surgery, and we'd rather NOT have to deal with surgery and recovery right now. We were told if Gabe had to go through the surgery he would also have to relearn how to walk...it took him long enough to learn to walk as it is, so we weren't so keen on the surgery option. He is still feeling pretty crummy though he is eating some food again. He and SarahAnne both seem to have a cold now, because apparently they like to share their cooties! Both of them are sneezing and have runny noses, Gabe's voice is hoarse though, so I am guessing he has a sore throat. Poor kid...he rarely gets sick but when he does he REALLY gets sick!
I will update on Thursday to let everyone know how Gabe's appointment went and perhaps I will be able to post a picture of him in his new cast.
