Playing with Heart Friends

Digging the sprinkler
The kids are getting crazy!

Last weekend we went to Greenville to the Lollipop Shop with Palmetto Hearts. Lorelei was able to fill a bear up with candy, well actually Daddy and I filled up the bear and Lo decided she needed to rearrange the candy in the baskets. We then went to Abbie and Shannon's house to have a picnic with some friends. In attendance were: Shannon, Abbie, Elijah and Micah, Sonny, Rhonda, Preslee, Kerrigan and Zeb and us. Elijah and Zeb are Lo's heart friends and you would never even know that they had a CHD. They were CRAZY! We had tons of fun, with good food, great friends and even getting sprayed with water by the 2 and 3 year olds. They were all about getting the adults wet! John got it the worst I think. I hope we can do it again soon!

2 Year Old Well Check

Dr. B was SO pleased to see Lo today! She did great, got on the big girl scale without a fuss(23.8 lbs 10th percentile, laid down to get her length/height 36in (92nd percentile), and let him listen to her and check everything without even a wince. She even let Ms. Candi prick her toe to get her hemoglobin (great by the way), without a peep. The shots however a totally different story. She got over it once we got a sticker and some cereal.

I can't believe what a big girl she is now. Now to get her off of her bottle (ANY IDEAS WOULD BE APPRECIATED) and getting her to sleep through the night!

Good job Lo, Mommy is proud of you!
