Look At Me Now!

Frances has quite a few new exciting skills, and her favorite is rolling over onto her tummy.  She also loves looking at her hands, shaking her rattles, and has really started vocalizing recently.  One thing we learned very quickly is that Frances does not give up- check her out in this video.  Pure determination!

Frances will be 3 months old this weekend and is doing so well.  She weighed in at 8 lb 12.5 oz yesterday!  Her cardiologist appointment went great last week.  Dr. Carlo had nothing to day but good things and is very pleased with how Frances is growing and developing so far.  They are still shooting for about the 6 month mark for her surgery.  We will go meet with one of the cardiac surgeons on May 16th so that he can take a look at Frances and talk to Will and I about the surgery.

Frances loves being on her tummy, and is able to lift her head up for a few seconds at a time.

Frances is sporting her new "hip pants" these days....Somewhat like a girdle or biking shorts, but they are sewn up in the crotch to keep her hips/legs more together.  Babies with Down syndrome and lower muscle tone often have difficulty with that so Frances now wears these pants for about 30 minutes 2 times per day.
