President's Day

I found these pictures in my camera taken sometime in January - thought it would be perfect to share today with it being President's Day and the day after Valentine's Day.

time for an update

Rosemary - 5 months

Please excuse the long wait . . . we've been busy and I needed to step away and tend to our family and so it became harder and harder to break away and download my camera and write. But I feel the time has come to update everyone on how we're doing and how I'm doing.

Rosemary - 5 months

I have to say that I'm very happy these days. I have found a renewed peace, and I am truly in love with this little girl - I mean look at those cheeks!!! Rosemary is grasping toys, smiling, coo-ing and starting to be able to hold up her head a little. She is right on track for her verbal milestones, but a few months behind on her motor milestones given her challenges. From talking to many doctors in the past few weeks, it looks like we're up against another surgery in the next month to decompress her Chiari. It's another major surgery, but inevitable. We still take it one day at a time and make the most of our days and enjoy each sweet little smile we get from her. Thank you for coming back so often to check on us . . . and I hope each of you has a Happy Valentine's Day!!
