The Happiest Baby on the Planet
Through it all, (Hirshprung's Disease, two surgeries, Kidney reflux, acid reflux, two holes in her heart, incomplete lip I am sure I forgot something) this is the face I see every day. This is how she chooses to deal with one thing after another. I think we could all learn from her!
She is an amazing baby and oh, so happy. She smiles through everything. Every procedure, every doctor's visit. (4 this week alone) My heart fills with joy each time I look at her. When she laughs like that it actually makes me cry. It's a new concept I had to explain to the boys. They now say "Mom, are you so happy you are going to cry?" She has had a rough start but she pushes through and I predict by the time she turns one she will be all "fixed" up. We are fortunate all her issues are fixable. No long term issues we know of. But, man, it has been a tough 8 months. Her lip repair should be in the next month or so once the surgeons can coordinate their schedules.
Keep smiling and laughing....
