You've been asking me almost everyday if you have a "docker poinment" today. I am SO GLAD I get to say "no, not for 4 (3,2,1) weeks!" Since you have no real concept of time you don't really get how long that is...but the relief on your face says it all. I'm so happy for you!! The fact that you can relax a little is huge for me, and you. I cant express in words how nice it is... I'm just so grateful you've made it this far and done so well. I worried that you'd have more side effects to your meds, but so far so good. Your next appt is this Thursday. 2 days before Christmas. No back poke, so all should go well.
We've been doing some fun stuff lately...
|We went to our ward Christmas party. I was SO surprised|
how outgoing you were. You've been a little overly shy
at these kinds of things since you were diagnosed.
|You even participated in the nativity...you were an angel. My camera|
wasn't taking good pictures in this lighting. You are the blurry bald
one in pink in the front row center.
|We finally got our tree up. Me and dad (mostly dad :)) aren't so |
good at lights. I laughed so hard at our tree...dad says its the
best one we've ever had! Thank you Walmart...only 20 bucks!
|What a cutie...big sisters old soccer uniforms are your|
favorite pj's! (you can really notice the lack of skills on the
lights in this pic. Hilarious)
|You've had the energy to play with Ry quite a bit. This is you and|
her in a fort you made all by yourself! It was filled with
pillows and blankets and snacks, because building
a fort is exhausting!
|A close-up of the panty incident! So funny!!|
|Carly and Lyssa had a ticket too...|
|You better watch out...|
|You better not cry...|
|You better not pout, Im telling you why...|
|Santa Claus is coming to town!|
I'm so excited for Christmas! I love watching the magic of this time of year in you and your sisters eyes. It so fun to hear the squeals of delight as you anticipate Christmas morning, and as you deliver gifts to neighbors and friends. I LOVE this time of year. So much to look forward to and be thankful for! Speaking of which...
On Monday December 20th, the 7 month anniversary of your diagnosis, Make A Wish is having your Star Raising Party! We are so excited for this special night. You will get to write your name on your own star and watch it raised to the ceiling with all the other wish-kids stars. What a neat, symbolic day. I hope you are always grateful for the wonderful people who put together this program. I am so excited to be a part of this special day! They will do the star raising, present you with a Barbie house (with elevator), and let you pick which playhouse you want them to build you in the spring. You also get to invite your friends and family to come share the moment with you. It should be so fun! So looking forward to it. Loving the new normal!
