Tiny Little Glasses....Oh So Cute

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2007 12:20 AM, CDT
There she is in all of her glory....tiny glasses and all and isn't she the cutest thing you have ever seen?!!!! When we put her glasses on her, she gets the biggest smile on her face. It's like wow....I can see!!! We discovered at her eye appt. that she is far-sighted. That explains why alot of times her eyes will cross because as she tries to focus on something that is close to her, she just couldn't do it. She doesn't seem to mind the glasses most of the time. Other times she will try (and succeed) to brush them off of her face.
More pictures on her photo page as well. One from her six month birthday party and one from her first day of trying solid foods...she liked them!!! Carrots. Now we are onto yellow squash and she likes that too. Just smiles so big when she eats. It only you could see, her smile would melt your heart. She is such a delightful baby girl.
At this point in time, everything is good with her. She had five (yes FIVE) shots last monday. Four were the six month immunization shots and the fifth was a special shot to help prevent her from getting a virus called RSV that could be fatal to her. She was such a trooper. Didn't feel well Monday night but Tuesday, it was back to business as usual. She now weighs 11 lbs, 14 oz. Finally out-growing all of those clothes we received at the baby shower. Just in time for Fall....
Oh, we had new photos taken. Check out our wonderful photographer, Martha Bravo, to see a sneak MUST see the pumpkin photo. It's adorable!!!! Click on the link below or copy and paste the following. Would love for you to leave comments on her blogspot. Martha would love them.....
P.S. The mask is part of her halloween costume, we got it from Build a Bear!!! More to come....
By for now.

Happy 6 Month Birthday Angel Baby

Happy Six Month Birthday Beautiful Girl
Last Friday was Brianna's six month birthday and we had a little get together with friends to celebrate. Brianna knew the party was for her because she participated happily, only taking a mini catnap during the course of the evening. Of course we took photos and will post some in a few days. She is getting so plump now and so fast that if I don't dress her in some of the clothes she couldn't wear a couple of weeks ago, then she won't get the chance to wear them before she outgrows them. Darn....that means we will have to go shopping!!! Uh oh, gotta go, I hear the little peanut fussing in the other room. Will keep you posted later on her various check ups later this week. Good night.

Good News and Celebrating 6 months of Life

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 09, 2007 04:45 PM, CDT
I know, shame on me....I have been away for way too long. But, remember, no news is good news. Let me make the last three weeks short and sweet. We have been to the cardiologist two times and Brianna is now totally off of her heart meds. Today we were at the speech therapist for the first time (to work on bottle feeding) and Brianna drank 20 mls. It was fantastic. The therapist expected maybe 2 mls, not 20. She believes it won't be too long before she is totally drinking by mouth. She goes to see an opthamologist next week (wouldn't she be just adorable with itty bitty glasses?!!) to help correct her lazy eye.
Brianna is growing like a weed. She now weighs 11 lbs and is able to wear some of those adorable outfits she has in her closet.
Last night me, Ashley and Bri were at the mall so we went into Build a Bear. It's been a long time since Ash and I laughed as hard as we did while dressing Bri up as a disco dancer, pirate, kitty cat, football player. Yes, she is still tiny enough to wear stuffed animal clothing!!! It was a good time.
This coming Friday will be Bri's six month birthday. To say the least, we are estatic. Who would have thought that we would reach this milestone. She has been doing so well since the surgery. Happy with big smiles (almost) all of the time. It sure makes Jerry and I feel good to know we did the right thing for her. She is our little angel.
