Hard to believe that my little preemie has turned 6 months, and is doing great. Zarriah is sporting her new ear piercings in the top picture. We got her ears pierced yesterday, and she handled it like a trooper. She's so amazing. We're purchasing 6 month clothing for her now. She arrived August 28, 2011 at 2lbs. 10 oz. and now weighs a whooping 13 lbs, lol. She doesn't believe in missing a meal, so it didn't take long for her to catch up.
Zarriah Garbrielle is wearing her Valentine's Day outfit in the picture above. She loves her fingers and they go into the mouth as soon as she gets the chance. She's rolling now and loves tummy time. She's ruling the household, mommy and daddy sleep when she says. For several months she was sleeping through the night, but she has reverted somewhat. She wakes up once through the night demanding her yummies.
We're going to try giving her fresh peaches within the next few weeks. I canned fresh peaches last year, so we could make her baby food. I also froze fresh zuchinni, squash, and greenbeans from my garden. I'll be planting sweet peas in the spring so we can make baby food out of those as well.
Grandparenting is such a blessing. I am so grateful and blessed that she is thriving and there are no major problems. She gets congested quite often, but the doctor is telling us not to worry. As her lungs get stronger, she will grow out of it. I'm looking forward to seeing Zarriah sprout and come into her own over the years. I'll be working on her 1st year scrapbook soon, lol,
