Fun weekend!

Mike and I actually went OUT on Friday night!!! We saw Joel McHale (from E's The Soup) downtown on Friday night. We went with our very fun friends Christy & Jody Friedman and met some other friends out before the concert for Spanish tapas. It was so much fun - I think we have only been out (aside from maybe a dinner or two out) one other time since Whitney was born, so this was definitely needed! Saturday was a fun day too... Whitney and I went with Mike & Anne to soccer in the a.m. then we went out to lunch with Mike's parents, my parents & my sister. Saturday night we had a 1st birthday party to go to (Happy 1st birthday, Hank!) and had lots of fun Saturday night, too! It is a nice feeling to be able to go out in public with Whitney and actually have a life outside of Dr. appts & therapy appts! We definitely feel as though things are looking up so far in 2009! Today has been a day of laundry and recovery from the weekend.
We wanted to share some pictures of the girls without Whitney's feeding tube. She is getting stronger and better every day. She is really getting the hang of taking a bottle. I have so much confidence in her, that I packed up ALL of the tube feeding stuff that has been scattered about our house and put it in the attic - hopefully we will never see it again!!!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

The girls look so precious! It's wonderful news that you all are doing so well. It must feel amazing to go out on a date and be adults :). Whitney looks so much more comfortable without that tube. She is gorgeous, just like her big sis :).
