feeding clinic, Rett clinic, measurements, oh my!

We have had a fun packed few days! On Thursday morning, Avery had an appt. at the feeding clinic through Children's Rehab services. It went well, Avery is perfect! They said that she is doing well and we should keep doing what we are doing and avoid those foods that we know she doesn't tolerate well. The said that a good caloric intake for Avery(because she is never still unless sleeping) was around 1700 calories a day! That is a HUGE amount of food!

After that we picked up Avery's mama G and headed to Birmingham. Avery had her 6 month follow up with Dr. Percy and Nurse Jane. They too commented on how well Avery was doing. She has put on almost 4 pounds in the time since our last appointment! My little chunky monkey! The first thing that Avery did was walk right over to Dr. Percy and wait to be picked up---she loves Dr. P! We will go back in May. I cant believe that in 6 short months Avery will turn 3 and age out of Early Intervention. Time sure flies by!

(Waiting for Dr. P and Jane---they were 15 mins late!)
