I have to admit I have been more of a "reader" of blogs than a "writer" in the past couple of weeks. Nothing TOO exciting has been going on... Whitney has been working on her top/front two teeth for I don't know, about 8 or 9 months!!!!!!!! FINALLY, her top, right middle front tooth popped through a couple of weeks ago. She has had her bottom two middle teeth since about 8 or 9 months old, it took until almost 17 months old to get her 3rd tooth! I think the one next to it will come through soon, maybe???
We had a cardiologist appointment for Whitney last Thursday. The last time we saw the cardiologist was July of last year, and we had been going to the cardiologist about every 3-4 weeks and then every 4-6 weeks. In July, Whitney was doing well enough that the cardiologist didn't need to see her for 6 months! When we saw him last week he could not believe how big Whitney had gotten and how well she was doing. In fact, she was doing so well that we do not have to go back for a whole year!!!! Yeah!!! Her mitral valve is still leaking more than he would like to see, but as of right now he is going to keep an eye on it for a while longer before deciding if another surgery will be needed to repair it again.
My mom had a cardiologist appointment today to see how everything is going with her heart (follow up from her June 2009 aortic valve replacement open-heart surgery). She also received good news- she is doing so well that she does not have to return to the cardiologist for one year, too!!!
I do not have much to report about Anne, other than she is getting way too big, way too fast!!! Last night I was holding her and looking in the mirror with her like I used to do when she was a baby - and it just is hard to believe that she is such a "big girl"!
I tried to take some pictures of Whitney's new tooth, but they didn't turn out so well... here they are:
