1st Medical Up-Date

Hannah had her 1st big medical appointment at the children's hospital this last Tuesday in Dallas (thank you for praying). We were there for a whopping 3 hrs. and 15 minutes...that's a long time to be poked on 3 times, stripped down twice, shuffled from room to room, and expected to perform on command. But hey, Hannah did really well through it all. But we were both so ready to get out of there.

We don't really have any answers after all that cause we have to wait for the blood work and other tests to come back. And we have to come back next Tuesday to have her sedated to put her through the heart test...UGH! We should know more after next week's test.

The only thing we do know is that she is REALLY skinny, well bonded to her parents for it being so early, seems to be smart with a big personality, and all the sleepless nights are normal...Really, 3 hrs. and 15 minutes later that's all we got...I should be a doctor. :) Honestly, it was good to hear all the things we already knew from someone who has been seeing adoptive kids like her for awhile now. However, I am really excited about getting to the bottom of her heart condition. We have been praying for this little heart and for the hole to close on its own for some time now. I am really praying we are given a clean bill of health and she will not have to have surgery. It would be nice to walk out of that hospital next Tuesday knowing we will never have to come back. My God is big enough to do just that. I'll keep you all posted with her diagnosis as soon as I can.

Now for a few pictures of our little princes:

This girl can put away some food. She is not all that picky for being almost 2. I was a little worried at first because she seemed to have a very sensitive gag reflex and would spit ANYTHING too chunky back out, but that is so much better now. We also learned she liked everything hot...and I mean everything...really hot. Now she is even learning to eat cold things. We are so very thankful for her HUGE appetite!

She is also VERY independent and insists on feeding herself.

But even that is getting better.

The girl loves to play outside and it was a beautiful day to do so.

Sometimes you just have to stop to smell the flowers.

Just like her Mama, she loves flowers.

Oooh, so pretty!

It was a good/happy we took lots of pictures.

She loves her babies!!!

A little milk for baby...

A little milk for Hannah. :)

Dancing with one of her babies.

If there is music on, she is's SO STINKIN CUTE!

That's all for now...

Thanks for stopping by.
