14 pounds, 12 ounces!

We've started putting her in the exersaucer...she seems to like it....she just needs to figure out how to grab those cool things sticking up in her face :)

Summer had her bi-weekly checkup today. She has now put on another pound in just two weeks! She is a healthy, 14 lbs. 12 oz. :) She has grown enough now to make it to the 50% for a 5 month old, which is her "corrected age". Not too shabby :)

With her huge weight gain and labs still looking great, they decided to try her off the Lipids again! She has been only running them 2 times a week, but NO times a week is so much better :) They feel she is getting enough of her fats from the formula she takes in....she has remained at 45 ML's per hour for about the last month and a half and is still gaining weight nicely. I know now she truly is a Cameron baby after all!

So, new regiment is 45 ML's of formula/hour, IV/TPN (without Lipids) 7 days a week (20 hours per day with a 4 hour break), and we can start adding Rice cereal to her diet :)

Next week Summer gets evaluated by a Therapy Center that comes to my house...she will start working on her fine/gross motor skills.....probably be walking before we know it!!

The taste let's try it with the tongue....
