This week, Mairead celebrated her half birthday when she turned 6 months old on Tuesday. Her six month check-up was great... both the pediatricianand the neurologist think that Mairead is doing amazingly well, and they don't see any ill effects of her stroke. She definitely has more than caught up in terms of size; she is 27 inches tall and weighs 17 and a half pounds. That's 95th percentile for height and 90th for weight. What a big girl!
Even though it wasn't our birthday, Dave and I actually got to go out to dinner at a real restaurant this week when Mairead's Nana came down to visit. She stayed over so that she and Mairead could spend the whole day together on Thursday. Thanks, Nana!
For her birthday, Mairead would like to see another championship in Boston. When she turned 3 months old, the Red Sox won the World Series. Now, she would love to see the Patriots win the Super Bowl, too!
We are staying warm, happy, and healthy as we enter February. So far, 2008 has been great! We are all doing well and are looking forward to all of the 'firsts' that Mairead will experience this year. We hope that you are all doing great, too!
