Yep, Addi is ONE! AHHHHH!!! She is such an amazing little girl. She loves to dance, laugh, kiss, and be coy! She is truly the happiest smiliest little girl ever. I just look at her and think of how far she has come from her first week of life. She was so frail, small, and lethargic. Now she is a vibrant hilarious almost toddler!!
Addi has had a rough year, but she is doing so wonderfully now and hopefully will do even better once she has her next surgery. She has finally started to make more sounds, which is huge since her ears are filled with fluid and her eardrums are barley moving. Her pediatrician thinks it may also be throwing off her balance. She has times where she is so steady when she is walking and then times where she is all over the place and has a tough time regaining her balance enough to even pull up. She has been standing up from sitting for months now, so to have trouble pulling up sometimes definitely makes sense with what the doctor suspects. So once she gets the tubes put in and they can get the fluid out and get her cleft fixed it will make things much easier on her!
She is now 16 lbs! Which doesn't sound like much, but that is 2 lbs since her 9 month appointment! Her doctor was over the moon with her gain and gave us the go ahead to try Milk. We had thought we were going to have to put it off because she is so tiny and we didn't want to mess with her eating at all. So that was great news!
The next few months are going to be full of changes for Miss Addi. Walking better, talking more, and getting a new baby brother! IT'S GOING TO BE NUTS!! :D
