Hi everyone!  My little Emily Rose is 6 months old today….I can hardly believe that it’s been 6 months already.  I’m thinking that I will do a separate post to talk more about that.  For now, I just wanted to share with you a short video of her “talking.”  Sometime within the past month, she has gone from cooing to just “talking” away.  The longer episodes of “talking” are not as frequent, but they’re well worth the wait.

Did you hear the “hello” at the end?    ~  sigh ~    My little miracle child.  🙂

    I wanted to ask you about something and I can’t see a way on here to just send messages to I guess I will post it here. How did Emily Rose do with shots? Has she gotten all her shots on time so far, or have you delayed them? Caroline had her 2 month vaccinations on time and did great with them, but we have an appointment for her 4 month checkup tomorrow and I’ve heard mixed reviews on vaccinated. Her geneticist thinks we should continue to do them on time as long as she keeps tolerating them well, but I’ve had some moms say that vaccines caused problems, like triggering seizures for there little ones. I know each child is different, but just thought I’d see how your little one did. If you want to email me, my email is jessieandaden@gmail.com. Thanks!

    I was going to e-mail you directly, but then I realized that the reply could potentially be helpful to others, as well, so I’ll just reply publicly. Thus far Emily has not had any reactions to shots yet aside from getting feverish the next day. This has happened every time she’s gotten shots, so now I know to just expect it. I immediately give her the appropriate dose of Tylenol and continue to do so when the fever comes back until they subside entirely (usually within a day or so). She has not gotten all of her shots on time, but that was not a conscious choice (although I did delay them with my son) and had more to do with insurance problems, as she was late with one of her checkups and then they wouldn’t allow us to have the next one in a shorter period of time because the appointments had to be scheduled a certain amount of time apart from one another, etc., so now she’s behind in her checkups and therefore her shots. I understand your dilemma, as shots can cause fevers, which can cause seizures, etc. Then of course there’s also the fear of Autism that’s related to vaccinations. I can tell you, however, that from what I understand, febrile seizures (the ones caused by fevers) are reportedly far less dangerous than seizures caused by other sources, such as abnormal brain/neurological activity. But you are indeed right, every child is different. I am wary of advising you one way or another because every child reacts differently to things based on their own makeup, but I think the advice you got thus far is sound. Proceed as you have been unless/until she has an adverse reaction of some kind.

    Hope this helps ~

    I enjoyed this video tremendously. The amount of effort Emily Rose put into this performance is worthy of an Oscar. She is going to be a talker for sure! I definitely heard the hello. She is making sounds very early. Her ability to concentrate and persist is remarkable. Impressive.
