I can’t believe how time has flown! Jonathan is now 9 months old/6 months corrected age for prematurity. He is 26 inches long (23%) and weighs in at 15lb 3oz (6%)! Hooray! The pediatrician was impressed with Jonathan’s growth!
Jonathan is still hitting all of his targets for development. We don’t visit the NEST clinic (developmental clinic) until December. Then he’ll have an updated evaluation from all of the different therapies. He rolls over. Loves to babble and has just learned to blow raspberries. He has a sweet, sweet laugh that I get to hear everyday.
I still haven’t had a first day back to work. I officially left my full time position, but the hospital kept me on a casual status (relief). This is great for me to keep my foot in the door. Right now, I just can’t fathom being away from the baby for 14 hours at a time minimum. It feels strange not to work, but being at home with a baby is probably the hardest work I’ve ever done….but the most rewarding too. I would hate to miss seeing my little miracle grow. Something new seems to happen every day. Hope all is well in your worlds! I try to keep everyone updated more frequently!
