Life so far

This is a continuation from my other webpage. I think this one is much better anyways....more pictures. For those of you who haven't seen my other webpage. Here's an update. My name is Tyler and I was born on July 27, 2005. I weighed 8 lbs 9 oz and was 22 inches long.

I have had a few bumps in the road since I've been born. I was born with hydrocephalus, which means I have fluid on my brain. But, luckily there was a surgery that fixed that. I had a shunt placed in my head when I was only 4 days old to drain the excess fluid. I ended having to stay in the hospital for 3 weeks before I got to come home. Which didn't last for long. Six days later, I had to go back to the hospital because my shunt malfunctioned and I had an infection. So 2 more weeks in the hospital, which wasn't fun at all. But I got a brand new shunt and it's been working great!

So now I am 6 months old. I weigh 15 lbs 5 oz and 26 inches . I am smiling, and cooing, and laughing a little. I just got my first tooth last Saturday, which is pretty exciting. I didn't know what it was at first. I kept touching it with my finger and it kept poking me. Luckily, my parents told me it was a tooth and everything was ok. Now my dad thinks I can eat anything. Anyways, keep checking in for more updates
