K's Echo.

K had her echocardiogram on her heart today. She was such a trooper, she kicked and smiled away at the technician and grabbed at the wand like, "Here I'll just do it myself!". The tech said she was the best behaved baby she'd ever had! She didn't cry at all until the very end when I had to pull the stickers off her chest, poor baby that had to hurt :(
We won't have the results until after the holiday when the cardiac surgeon has time to go over the images, but the tech said she thought we could be at ease because she didn't see anything that would concern her. So I guess she knows what she's doing enough that I feel comfortable letting my mind be at ease until after the holiday.

2 month check-up

K had her 2 month check-up today. She weighs 13lb 4oz (gain of 8lbs since birth) and is 23.5 inches long (2 inches longer). She's in the 83 percentile for her little chunker! The pedi looked at her birthmark on her arm and said it was a hemangeoma. I thought it was kind of weird that I developed one of those on my chest while I was pregnant with her and now he has one!

We did find out some news today that upset me some. K has a heart murmur. Pedi said that it's what they call a "flow murmur" and it's when her heart is pumping blood out. She said it's fairly common and that I shouldn't get too worried about it. We scheduled an echocardiogram for this Thursday but we won't have the results until after Christmas. I'm a little nervous, but trying to take doc's advice and not get too worried. I hope all is well, and I'll update when we know more.

Beautiful Baby!

As I type this K is sleeping on my lap and I just can't get over how blessed I am! I have a healthy, beautiful and happy baby and an amazing husband who loves me more than anything... how could I ask for more?

She thinks her daddy is funny!

@ 19 days old on October 29th K has her first bath! She loved it! It was a much more pleasant experience for everyone involved than those stinking sponge baths!

P.S. her cord stump fell off the day before this.

K's first Halloween and also her first time meeting Aunt K.K. and the kids! This is L giving K hugs and kisses!

K turned one month old on the same day as Aunt K's baby shower! As you can tell K is very excited and anxious to meet her buddy 'baby boy P'!

These 3 pictures are from K's first Thanksgiving. We had it at my mom's and 'Little Miss' got to show off her turkey hat and bib! 

LOVE this face!
