saw maggie's pediatrician yesterday...

...and got a referral to the cranio-facial specialist. she said she can see the asymmetry in her head and face, but that her face looks so mildly asymmetrical that it looks normal to her. because she is a resident, dr. russo works with this guy at the hospital a few times a month and she thinks he's great. she said he'll just give maggie's head a feel and let us know what he thinks. she thinks maggie won't need a helmet, but said that all of the cases she's seen while working with this guy were really bad, so she doesn't know for sure what he'd think about a mild case like maggie's. maybe he'll be able to give us more pointers on how to help position to reshape her head without flattening out the other side too much.

also, she weighs 18.5 lbs. that's a big maggie! nina was about 15.5 at this age. she's a little bit taller than nina at this age, maybe half an inch or an inch. she's also sitting up very well, rolling in both directions, and starting to scoot a bit on her tummy.

oh, and her favorite food is cantaloupe.

She is so strong, and she really wanted to be moving around when you were at our place- she'll be crawling in no time!!
