This smiley girl turned 9 months old last week. Where is the time going?
She’s decided sitting is overrated and chooses to roll around everywhere. Which she is quite good at! She rolls all around the room and can get wherever she wants to for the most part. I’m convinced she will probably crawl before sitting. But it just makes this stage of baby-hood last longer, which I am happy for. The doctors are not concerned she isn’t sitting yet, that because of surgery she will be delayed physically and that is ok.
Pictures with her name, as they were last month, are getting harder and harder! But I had a trick up my sleeve this time. :)
Her scar is healing quite nicely. I guess it’s normal (so I found out) for the bottom of the scar to thicken and stick out a little bit (a keloid scar). Looking back at Bailey’s head scar, hers is similar in that the middle of the scar is a thin, thin line and the sides are scarred wider. I am rubbing vitamin E on it and I’m able to massage it now that it doesn’t bother her. It does itch her still.
Someone told me that when their baby’s scar started to fade that they were actually sad. And I totally get that now.
I think it is beautiful.
I have to tell you that I am doing much better from THIS post. Thank you for your kind comments!!! I think that I was actually starting to become addicted to social media in an effort to reach out to those going through similar circumstances. And during that time the sad stories were of course really affecting me. I’ve taken a step back and tried to put things back into perspective and have, as a result, found so much joy in living life as it is now. There is much to be thankful for and there is a wonderful life to be lived. So I’m going to do just that :).
Thanks for stopping by!!
