December to April

Wow what a busy time!!! Let's see...Sadie's foot surgery was a complete success. She is a walker now. It is so wonderful to see her on her feet all the time now, instead of knee walking. I'm so proud of her! All the gastroenterology testing showed she has a slight delay in stomach emptying. We increased her dose of prevacid and it has worked wonders, she hardly ever spits up anymore.

We pulled her from the public school special ed. preschool to offer her an inclusion program with her peers at All Saint Episcopal Day School. She absolutely loves going to school with children her own age. They just love her too. It is so sweet to hear the children call her name.

She is now saying approximations of hello, bye bye, baby, off, on, all done, dada, mama, milk, and more. It is so exciting to watch her development.

We celebrated her 3rd birthday on Sunday, April 6 with Nanny, Memaw and Poppy, Amy and Sonny, Jack, Gina, and Sophie, and of course Mommy, Daddy, Shelbi, and Daisy too. Her actual birthday was celebrated quietly at home with Mommy, Daddy, Shelbi, and Daisy on April 7, 2008.

Shelbi is moving mountains with her development. She is now 9 months and is amazing too. She started army crawling at 6 months, real crawling at 7 months, cruising the coffee table at 8 months, and took her first independent 5 steps on her 9 month birthday. She says mama, dada, gaga, and baba. Look out world.

Shelbi is also finger feeding herself. She is very healthy.

Mommy and Daddy are doing good too. Daisy is sweet as always.
