Anyways, we're still waiting on the genetic test to come back on Ladybug. Should get it back in another week and a half or so. She's had several days when she's acted like her head was hurting, either grabbing at it or rubbing it back and forth and whaling high pitched cries. We hold her, rub her head, and give her Tylenol and she calms down. I just think it's a bit absurd to be giving a now 5 month old Tylenol 1-2x/week. But, when she acts like that I figure it's just cruel to let her be in pain, if I even have a hint that that's what the problem is.
We did finally make a little progress in the pushing up status. Yesterday, on her 5th month birthday, she finally made a little effort to push herself up on her forearms. I've been putting her on her belly on the changing table while I put her clothes on her, trying to use any time I can for belly time that might distract her from screaming. I knelt down in front of the changing table so she'd look at me, and then once I had her attention I slowly stood up, and she actually raised her head to follow me and then put a little weight on her arms and raised her chest up, just a bit. I was so excited! Small victory, but I had really wanted her to at least show some effort to push up by 5 months. I'm beginning to get an idea what parents of premies and developmentally delayed children are like; you really do get ecstatic over the littlest things, cause while they seem little to someone else, when you've been trying for them for months it's huge!
