It seems Spring has finally arrived for us here in Pittsburgh, and with that we have been going for lots of strolls around the block and trips to the park. Judah is closing out his 3rd week at home, and as of today he is 7 months old!
Things have been going really well for all three of us since we were able to bring Judah home. We’ve been able to build our routine and get Judah into a steady schedule. His days are just as filled here at home as they were at the Hospital and at The Children’s Home, filled with playtime, tummy-time, book reading, outside time, baths, song and dance time with mommy, and sleep. All of this in addition to multiple doctors appointments every week for follow up.
So far all of his doctors appointments have been going very well too. His cardiologist feels that he has been doing great since his surgery, and she has adjusted Judah’s medications a bit accordingly. He has even been doing daily trials for multiple hours at a time on the lowest settings on his ventilator and doing very well with it – one step closer to trying short sprints off of the vent completely! Judah has put on a good bit of weight since getting home, he is now over 16lbs, and seems to be growing in length as well, measuring over 24″. We haven’t taken a recent measurement of his cheeks, but they are as big and pinch-able as ever.
Judah has become a big fan of bath-time lately, and really enjoys going outside, though the bumping of the stroller seems to lull him into a wonderful sleep. He is as happy and playful as ever, and he thanks all of you for continuing to check in on, support, pray for, and love him as much as we do.
All our love
