Happy Come Home Day

Saturday August 1st we celebrated Elizabeth's second come home day. This day is much more of a day for me to celebrate than her actual birthday. I made a brownie cake at Grandma's and Elizabeth was able to party with some of the family.

Elizabeth the day we brought her home.


Elizabeth two years latter.

We still haven't hit the elusive 2o pound mark and have even increased her appetite stimulant. I am not sure why this bothers me so much, but it does. Maybe it is the fact that an average 9 month old weighs 20 lbs. Whatever it is I just can't get past it. It is just one stinking little pound!

Just because I was feeling good about her health and how far she has come; Elizabeth got sick and had to leave a big family get together on the 1st just a few hours after our little party. Aside from the disappointment of missing out on something- again- it was just another reminder of how fragile her health still is. I am absolutely dreading this winter. It will be her first year without synagis so RSV is a big scare; the swine flu also has me in a cold sweat as well as the thought of another 6 months of the year spent in isolation.
