did I tell you that her Physical Therapist said as a general rule...that if a child is sitting up by 2 years of age, that eventually they will walk....yeah, you read that correctly...we believe Brianna will walk...she continues to be such a fighter...nothing keeps our baby girl down......oh my is god, I meant to is good....hmmmmm. typo or.........

Lots of New Stuff

Well, it has been quite a while since I posted and we've had a lot going on. Earlier this month Brianna was sick with what turned out to be the flu. Battled it like a warrior. Then it turned into congestion, that was the toughest part but in true Brianna form, she conquered it.

She went to the eye doctor and has new picture soon. Went to the orthopedic and her back is curving more than we want so she now has a back brace...another new picture soon and....she has an itty bitty split on her hand to see what we can do about her crooked finger, the least of our worries. She continues to be her happy, adorable little self continuously making us smile great big smiles. We are so blessed.

Feel free to post a comment on this new page, I have enlarged the "comment" section at the bottom of each post. To comment, just click on the "comment" and there you go. As I said before, we love to hear from Bri's fans...please leave a small note for us to check out.

Happy day.

3 Little Miracles All Together

MONDAY, JANUARY 19, 2009 10:36 AM, EST
What a weekend! We went to Houston, Jerry, Brianna and myself (Ashley stayed in Orlando to attend a church retreat) to meet little Annabel. Oh, she is gorgeous! Imagine our surprise when not only did we meet Annabel but we also met Rachel who is 9 months old and also diagnosed with Trisomy 18. Three of these beautiful babies in one room. Living and breathing. Bless my husband who was present listening to three women talk about their baby girls. I would say all of us learned something new in caring for our girls.

More later. Bri's fussing for some attention.

This is one of my absolute favorite photos...our little angels

Happy 16 Month Birthday Baby Girl

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2008 04:30 PM, CDT
Happy 16 month Birthday to our cutie pie. (A day late...I actually updated the website last night and then the internet blinked off and it was lost...I was too tired to re-type it then). Things are going well with Brianna. She is scheduled for eye surgery on August 22nd. We don't think her little cross-eyes look that bad (I think they're cute in a Brianna-kind of way) but her eye doctor highly recommends that we do it. So....we'll see how they turn out (no pun intended LOL).
I was quite pleased when Bri's OT said that her neck is strong enough to ride in a bicycle seat. Straight to the cycle shop we went. Brianna HATED the helmet. Couldn't stop trying to figure out what the heck was on her head. The guy at the cycle shop said "oh look...she's cross-eyed....(idiot). We just smiled and waited for him to figure out that yes, her eyes DO cross. After that he couldn't get away from us fast enough.
Anyway, she cried so loud in the bicycle seat that when I was down the street, her daddy could hear her and came to her rescue. We'll try again when the weather is not so hot and humid.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention. Brianna weighs in at a hefty 20 lbs. and now has five teeth. Two front and three bottom front.
God Bless.
