And Let's Give a Big Hand To...

Hallie Rose, who has learned how to clap.

We've been working on this for a week or two but Hallie redirected the clapping project into the "gimme five" project. Last week, she was givin' us skin whenever she could (something that no doubt will thrill her daytime primary nurse, Meghan, since Meghan was always giving Hallie high-fives in the ICN). Anyway, yesterday, for some unknown reason, she decided that she was ready to become a full-fledged audience member.

Here's Hallie posing in her Phillies' cap (she has a whole toddler uniform; us Philadelphians are suckers for losing teams that break our hearts every season and I want her to get started early on this).

Click on Hallie Clapping Hands to see for yourself how well Hallie claps hands.

Needless to say, Hallie is very proud of herself and we're very proud of her!

For those of you eager for a feeding update: it's going better. We're mixing pediasure and enfamil AR ready to feed at a 3:1 ratio (the ER doc assured us that this was okay) and she's keeping it down. She's now back up to 20-23 ounces a day and seems well hydrated.

And, finally, yes, those rumors that Hallie is moving forward with her crawling are true; we just don't have video proof of it yet but I'll try to capture some images and post them later...
