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.
