Almost 7 Months Old
We are enjoying every change with our little miss. She is such a sweet little person! A total social bug, willing to go with the flow most of the time. She really likes to read books and play with her toys while sitting up (very important). She's learning to shake her head "no" and now that we're over being sick, she's really starting to eat a lot more, enjoying all the mushed up food we provide. We are learning that with both of us working full time, we don't have enough with her! Our personal time has become very valuable. Today I got her a "treat" at the grocery store, plastic Easter Eggs to play with. She played with them for hours- they were prefect new toy! As you can see, her pants are often too short... she's a tall girl (where'd she get that???), our last check up found that she is 95% in height & 80% in weight for her age. Thank you to those of you who have been praying for her heart murmur. We got some great news last week. We don't have to go back to the Cardiologist for THREE MONTHS!!! They took her off her medicine and we are thrilled to be able to minimize the visits to Children's Hospital. Since she was born, we've been going to appointments every 2-6 weeks. A three month break is very much appreciated by all! The hole in her heart isn't growing, but her little heart is! So, she could still grow out of it, and as she gets bigger, the less it will be a problem for her. Mya wanted to tell her cousin, Allison thank you for the great sun glasses... they finally fit her little face and I'm sure they'll come in handy soon!

Thanks for the update. We miss her. Allison was sitting here when we pulled up the blog and she noticed RIGHT AWAY that she was wearing her sunglasses... thanks for mentioning her. She's happy to know she's an important cousin!

ADORABLE! I can't wait to see her again. Jake wouldn't be nearly as cute dropping eggs in front of him! We hope to see you soon :)
