Well we decided we would start this year off with a bang! In seven, yes SEVEN days we are moving into a new house! We are going to Helm Ct., about a 5 minute walk from where we live now, to reside in a brand spanking new remodeled 3 bedroom single-story home! The new houses have all hardwood floors, brand new cabinetry and appliances, and a fake granite countertop (my husband has informed me it's wood that looks like granite, go figure!). I cannot WAIT to be in my new house, but I am seriously dreading this move! I HATE moving! I have done it five times in the last six years and trust me, it gets old! I am elated at the fact that we have professional movers to do all the hard stuff, but the organizing, getting rid of and trying to find space for items is getting old! But that's what I will be doing ALL week long!
Next weekend we will be painting Scarlette's new room and our room, which is all the time we have to pain before our furniture gets transferred on Monday. Anyone love to paint? Come on down!
Scarlette is doing very well. Along with getting ready to move we have 10 dr/therapy appts this week so we are going to be busy busy busy! We are meeting with pt/ot/speech x2, feeding therapist, pediatrician, audiologist (getting SJ's hearing aid) and the surgeon. All wonderful appointments, but they happened to ALL be during this next week of chaos!
Scarlette still doesn't want to eat very much of her formula by mouth, but her intake of baby food is gradually increasing, something we are all very excited about! She can spend about a minute on her tummy before getting upset, I think mainly due to pain, but also she hasn't practiced in a while and her muscles seem to be a weaker than they used to. Surgery is a pain!
She was weighed last night and is up 10 oz from last week, we are hoping she can gain a half pound every week until she catches up to a normal height/weight ration for her age. The more she weighs, the stronger she becomes and the more ability she will have to do things like sit, crawl and walk!
We are very excited about this upcoming year, lots of big changes for our family! From ours to yours: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
