Kidneys and Crawling

Yesterday we went to Anellah's nephrologist (kidney doctor) for a check up. This is one of my FAVORITE doctors and I highly recommend if anyone has a child with any sort of kidney issue they see Dr. Elizabeth Talley! It was not only a great visit because Dr. Talley is super nice, but we also had good news. Anellah's blood levels which monitor kidney function have remained the same and a recent ultrasound even showed that although her kidneys don't look entirely normal, her kidneys are growing! Dr. Talley recommended we just carry on and return in 6 months for another follow up. No need to do anything special.

And in other news, Capper is starting to crawl...or rather hop like a frog without the "hop." He slides on his belly which seems uncomfortable considering it's been too hot for him to wear a shirt lately. I'm going to try to get a video of his "crawl" to post on here. He's also moving in other ways too such as rudimentary creeping (holding onto furniture and walking for a step or two).

Capper's mouth is like a waterfall as he finally has his first tooth making an appearance. We were lucky to make it to 8 1/2 months without any teeth. He's been a bit more fussy than usual but still a pretty good boy.
Anellah and Capper had a blast on Sunday afternoon while she fed him dirt with a side of bamboo.
