Doctor appt. for Avery

Today we went to St. Vincent's for a ultrasound to check Avery's hips. He was breech at birth and based on what our peditrician said its normal procedure to get a hip ultrasound to make sure its hips are not out of socket etc. We got the results while waiting at the peditricians office. He has a mild case of  Hip Dysplasia. We go to the orthopedic on October 11th to find out if he will have to wear a brace or something else. Its a very mild case only on his left leg and only occurs when his leg is in a stressed position. We will know more on the 11th but please be in prayer for our little guy and that everything will work itself out. I have mixed emotions about it and I'm trying to think postitive.

He also had his 2 month check up today and weighed in at 12lbs 4 oz and was 23.5 inches long! He's doing great. He still takes 4 ounces every three hours and will take up to 6 ounces a few times a day.

At two months:
He loves to smile, reminds me alot of Big brother Connor.
He has found his hand and loves to suck on the entire thing!
Follows you across the room with his eyes.
Knows voices.
Smiles alot at Big Sister Laynee.
