Over 12 and 24

Miss Madison is now well over 12 pounds and is now two feet long. I can't believe how big shes gotten. I was just watching a video I took of her when she was just two weeks old. if you'd like to watch. What are all of your plans for Memorial Day? My parents, husband , Madison and I will be heading to Boston (no not a surgery) to go to the Sea Aquarium. I can't wait to see the little penguins and how she reacts to things.

NICU Graduates

We got our invitation a week or so ago and I have to say I'm really excited to see all the doctors and nurses who put there time and minds together to give Madison life. I know quite a few of her situations in the NICU took the doctors and nurses for a ride because no one knew what was happening with her and why. I'm very lucky we had the doctors and nurses we did and I'm thankful for all their dedication and hard work. The reunion is June 16th, a day after the hubby's birthday and Madison will get a chance to see a friend she shared her POD with during those 4 months. I keep in touch with her mom and we are on Facebook and have exchanged numbers so it'll be awesome to see her there. In two days Madison will be 9 months!...Adjusted 5 months. I can't believe she has been home almost 5 months it's ridiculous how time flies. I got this code from Pampers about a free father's day book from Shutterfly and I think I may do that for the hubbs for father's day EVEN THOUGH he didn't get me anything lol BUT thats okay :P

There hasn't been too much going on in the life of Madison, the family and I. But I have been busy with life so I apologize for not posting in a bit. Madison is almost 12 pounds if not 12 right now. She is smiling more and more each day and the talking is just adorable. Since being in the NICU for all the time and being set on one side the whole time pretty much she has been favoring one side more than the other. This has been since coming home but I never thought to mention it. ANYWAY tomorrow we have Early intervention bringing by an occupational therapist, I believe to check her out and see what her recommendations would be. To me she is moving her head more and more to the right on her back which is what we are trying to get at. Madison is an odd one...when holding her up right or if she is on her belly she moves her head both ways, its just on her back that she does the whole "I'm not moving my head that way," thing. That's where we are right now. We ended of finally changing to a difference pediatrician. Our medically insurance finally ended and we are now waiting to hear from COBRA since I sent back the paperwork. I had to spend $40 the other day to get my husband antibiotics when it otherwise would have been $7.00. I have a refill coming up for my pills and I'm scared to find out how much it'll cost. I'm no longer getting severance pay anymore and I've moved onto unemployment. Which brings on a lot of other trouble. They are trying to send me to job fairs and seminars and well HELLO I cannot out I'm the sole care taker of my child and she is still considered "disabled," I don't think they GET that. Doctor's note here I come.
