Fun Times...

Quick update, I'll try to post more later! It's been crazy! I went to the doctor this morning and he confirmed that I'm having an allergy attack. Great! I'm relieved that it's not a cold, now I don't feel guilty for going to the hospital yesterday. Speaking of yesterday, it was a GREAT day!!! My sweet Ben pulled out his first tooth!!! He was so excited for the Tooth Fairy to come that I couldn't get him to fall asleep. He kept hollering at me that the Tooth Fairy hadn't come yet and he wanted me to catch her for him! What a sweetie. In the end he fell asleep, and this morning let out a huge yelp when he realized that he had a shiny gold dollar under his pillow!



Elaina also had a good day. It was her 8 month birthday! The nurses dressed her up in her prettiest dress, and there was a cute poster on her wall. I took in a cake (my favorite scratch cake, pineapple! Yummers!) and some fun decorations for her crib. On a side note, she passed her swallow study! What a good girl! I'm not sure what we're going to do with this information, but at least it's a step in the right direction. Here's a cute picture of her in her birthday dress, and a little video. She's so content, I just wish I could get her to smile.....

I'll update more later!! I'm off to the hospital!!!

Ohhh! Precious, precious, precious! What a sweet little thing. And soooo cute!

I'm so glad for your good day, for everyone's good day! Ben had his first experience with the tooth fairy, that's pretty exciting. Praying for much more goodness for you all....and for no more no-nos! :)

I'm so glad to see Elaina having better days. That is such a miracle from where she was a couple of months ago. She just amazes me with her stregnth. Good luck and I will check back later on you guys.

She looks great! And that dress is just too cute!

First tooth fairy visit, yay! I think I need to have some funds paid to me retro-actively... only got a quarter for a tooth when I was little. Inflation, I guess!

Praying that she continues to improve & you are all home together soon!

I linked to your blog from Brytt Pettit's. My son also has tetrology of fallot and di george syndrome. He is now five years old and doing very well. I also have a friend with a little girl who has the same diagnosis and just began the third grade. There is SO MUCH HOPE! I wish you the very best in your journey with this. I hope that your little one continues to do well and will be home soon.

What great news all around! That is so cute that Ben wanted you to catch the tooth fairy.

What a pretty dress Miss Elaina had on. She is just so content laying there looking at you.

Keep the good news coming!
