Time is flying by and we are enjoying every minute of every day. I am totally amazed at all of the changes we have seen in the last 4 months. Hope is spending her days smiling and cooing and it is so wonderful to see and hear. She is still in the 9s...I never knew it could take this long to gain a pound. I swear I can gain a pound just thinking about eating a brownie and it is taking Hope so long just to gain a pound. I never knew how frustrating it could be to watch your little girl try and gain weight. I just really want her to get to at least 10 pounds (preferably 12) before her surgery. I am not sure if that will happen, but we are praying.
Hope had her vaccinations today and seemed to do fine with them. She slept most of the afternoon and evening. The doctor's office weighed her in at 9 pounds 11 ounces, but I am pretty sure their scale is wrong. At home she weighs about 9 pounds 4 ounces, so we still have quite a ways to get to 10 pounds.
There are a lot of heart babies having surgery or getting ready to have surgery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
