Faith really got to know them all a little better. After all, she was born during some of the worst parts of Hannah's storm, and though they physically saw her a couple of times in Arkansas (once to visit Hannah and once for Hannah's celebration service), they didn't really get to know her as their attention was understandably elsewhere! If you are not familiar with Hannah's amazing story, please visit their blog http://www.thesullivanfour.blogspot.com/
We were sad when they had to leave thursday morning, but we did introduce them to some authentic mexican breakfast burritos before they left. At the restaurant, Faith was a show-off as usual, using every last bit of air in her to blow rasperries....over and over....
It is no surprise to us that Faith is hot natured. She gets it from her daddy who got it from his daddy. When Bubba holds Faith, both of them start sweating profusely! Faith will not allow socks on her feet, and i think she would rather never have any clothes on at all, though day care may not appreciate that! Sorry, Faith.
You may notice that her nose is looking better. The big scab fell off today, and the incision is looking really good. It's only been two weeks, 2 days since the surgery.
My post about her four month check up showed her sleeping on the patient table in the room while waiting for the doctor. We tried that again this time, but Faith was way too interested in the noise that paper makes every time she moved. After she ripped most of the paper off the table, she fell asleep, providing Dr. Loden the optimum circumstances to listen to her heart and lungs.
Faith now weighs 20 pounds, 12 ounces and is 28 inches long...still topping the curve on the growth chart. The doctor and nurse were both impressed with the way Faith's nose is healing. We can see improvement every single day!
Thank goodness for strollers...that is all I have to say. Faith is heavy, and Papaw and Daddy's arms gave out quick! Faith watched the birds and the fish, but by the time we got to the last of the exhibits, she was asleep for the big animals like the giraffes, the elephant, and the rhino. Oh well, we have pictures...not that she will remember a visit to the zoo at 6 months of age!
It was just a fun family outing for sure. Nana got some good pics of the animals for the scrapbook. Later today, Faith also set in a high chair at a restaurant for the first time. She did really well, except for wanting to teethe on the table!
