look at this girl....like a million bucks, right? i was in the shower today and thought, it's been a long time since i took a shower expecting someone to burst in telling me lilah is having a seizure. and then i realized....i've quit worrying what it would do to garrett if i had to call an ambulance in the middle of the day...i no longer count her respiratory rate regularly...i've stopped hearing bells, whistles, beeps, and hums of machines in my sleep...i have not taken her to the doctor in almost 6 weeks...and i've quit expecting her to die. it seems crazy now, when i look at her--so much stronger and very much a part of our family's future.
lilah's doing great, and getting more of a personality everyday--loves to laugh, be read to, and mostly be held:)....does not want either parent out of her sight...playing peek-a-boo....blowing kisses. she's rolling over more and getting closer to sitting up. she still doesn't make many sounds, but is definitely starting to show some interest in signs (sign language).
her development is nowhere near typical, but it is soo far beyond what we were told to expect.
we are soo beyond thankful!:)
