Last Post About an Only Child

Tonight is probably Sweet Pea's last night as an only child.  She has blessed us with so much in her short 22 months and I can't imagine my life without her now.  Sweet Pea may have caused me a lot of emotional chaos when we first found out about her diagnosis, but I am very happy to say that I am almost completely over that!  It's been a long hard journey to get here, but being here is worth it!  She can make the rest of the world disappear with just one smile or one giggle.  She is a trouble maker in training, but so adorable in the process.  Every day she is learning new things and getting stronger and more confident in her abilities.  I love her with all my heart and I know that having a little sister will be wonderful for her...down the road a little bit.  Her world is about to be turned upside down, but hopefully she will handle the change very well.  I am so amazed at all that she has taught me and all the personal growth that she has helped me achieve.  Sweet Pea, you are amazing!

This past weekend we had our monthly play date with our local support group and it was held where Sweet Pea gets her PT now.  She had a blast and even tried out the walker again!  She hated it when we tried it back in mid November, but is loving it now!  Too bad she can't steer it yet!  This is just a short clip of her walking with it, but she went back and forth a lot!  Hopefully her PT is going to work with her on it starting on Thursday so we might see some good progress soon!

Here are a couple of Sweet Pea on the zip line.  The faster it went the more she enjoyed it!  The sounds she made were just precious!

Sweet Pea, I love you with all my heart and soul. I will miss you while I am in the hospital, but look forward to being back home with you very soon. Hugs and kisses!!!!
