This little girl has captured hearts everywhere.
Why? Because she is spectacular. So is her hair!
She seriously couldn't be any sweeter.
She sleeps all the time, rarely cries, and laughs a ridiculous amount of time considering she's a mere 3 weeks old...already an over-achiever.
So far her eyes are a true blue. Shocking considering we have never expected anything but brown. She's full of surprises this girl.
We take her Tuesday to Saint Louis for a day of appointments. We are so blessed to live so close to St. Louis. We are going to the Down Syndrome Clinic which is inside the Children's Hospital. This means all her doctors specialize in Down Syndrome in addition to their field of medicine. So we start the day with the Down Syndrome leading doctor, then onto the cardio appointment, and then her endocrinologist to recheck her thyroid levels. I'm not sure what all they have in mind, but it will be a full day for sure.
So far little miss is doing great. She eats about every 3 hours. Sometimes she pushes it to 4, and makes up for it later by eating every 2. She pigs her bottles right down. She detests formula so my milk makers better keep up!
Her heart seems stable to Jade & I, but then again we only know what to look for on paper. They gave us a stethoscope...we are useless with it... However, I think we'd know if her heart was causing issues, so we're feeling good about things. Please continue to pray for her. We have an 11 pound weight goal to meet, and so far she's on her way there. I'm guessing she'll be around 8 pounds 3 ounces this week - or hopefully more! In addition pray for Dr. Huddleston - the cardio-thoracic surgeon we will someday meet, and pray for the nurses and doctoring team we will also meet. We know this is in our future, and prayers ahead of time always help.
She is definitely the blessing we never expected. We adore her in a big way.
I also had to share a picture of Everett. He is another joy to us. Life is good.
We are happy!!
