Our Thanksgiving Miracle

This Thanksgiving, our family is thankful for so many things. Of course, our Sweet Little Emerson is on the top of that list!! While visiting family, Emerson decided that she was ready to "hands and knees" crawl (rather than army crawl) across the floor. Travis and I have been waiting for this moment for so long! I was so excited I called E's physical therapist on her day off. Sorry Rebecca! :-)

So...I want to give a huge shout out for the wonderful team of professionals that work so hard with our family to better Emerson's future! We are truly THANKFUL for you!

Good friends, Good pig, and Good cameras!

This past weekend we had a neighborhood pig roast! The guys were so excited, they got up at 7am to start cooking. I was a little nervous about eating the pig but Travis sure did enjoy it! He is already trying to figure out how to build a smoker for himself?!? Our sweet neighbor, Kendra got a new camera for her birthday so we had to test it out on Emerson. As always, she hammed it up! :-)

Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day!

I had to take a picture of the two dressed in their red, white, and blue. My sweet husband got Emerson all ready in her outfit to go enjoy the Veteran's Day parade in Downtown Orlando. Travis is on Daddy Duty so I can recover/rest after gum graft surgery that I had on Tuesday afternoon. I'm so grateful for such a great husband!!

Universal Day

Universal Studios kindly invited the Down syndrome Association to bring 4 family members for a day of fun at the park! Emerson invited mommy, Grammy, and Uncle Justin (Daddy had to work). We had a BLAST! Universal Studios treated us like Rock Stars!! We had a cookie buffet, our own tour guides, Fast Pass tickets, our own photo shot with Barney and friends, and free parking! We are already looking forward to this event next year!
THANK YOU Universal Studios for the awesome day with family and friends!!

The one and only Barney!!

Emerson and Baby Bop (I think?)

After a long day, Emerson takes a nap with the girls!

Cardiologist Approval!

Emerson just got home from her 6 month post surgery check-up/ sedated Echo! Her heart is working wonderfully and there is NO leakage! We couldn't ask for a better check-up. We have officially graduated to once a year appointments with Dr. Fleishman. HOORAY!!!!

Happy Halloween

This Halloween was much more enjoyable because we were NOT in the NICU. Emerson had tons of fun with her friends at Rockers and Rollers and our neighborhood get together! She was a champ on Halloween night and stayed out trick or treating until 9:45! Daddy has been enjoying all of her candy! :-)
