22 Months

Our lil miss Alexandrea is now 22 months old, Where has the time gone ?

She is a little mini tonado aound our house and is so quick now that she is walking every where. She is also most running but is not quite there but she is so proud of herself and we are too. She is so much fun right now and we just can't wait for her to be a big sister.


Above, one of our very sweet dear friends is a breast cancer survivior, we participated in the "sleep for the cure" one of our things we got was this pink wig, she loves it.


Enjoying some mexican !!

Update




Wow, again time has just flown and I have been so bad about blogging, We have been pretty busy here though


If you have not figured it out, Alexandrea is going to be a big sister. I am now 15 weeks, hopefully here in a few weeks we will get to know what we are having. We are truly excited about this new little one even though it wa a complete suprise to us! We are also nervous and scared since Alexandrea ended up coming 7 weeks early but we also have our faith that we can carry full term and have a healthy little one. We do not care what we have , we just want a healthy baby. So far the pregnancy has gone fairly smoothly other than daily all day sickness. Our newest little one is due in Feb 2011.


On friday Aug 6, 2010, Alexandrea had surgery to close the asd (atrail septal deftct) The hole ended up larger than they though it was. In her echos before surgery, they guessed it was around 7-8 mm, once they got in there, they discovered it to be at 11 mm and place a 12 mm stent (titanium mesh plug). They decided to go ahead and close it using tee cath procedure as she just is not growing like they hope she would. It seems even on or off a feeding tube at high calories she just does not gain. So with the surgery being done we are hoping for better weight gain. She is now weighing in at around 16lbs 4 oz.


Her feet are def growing though, she has gone from a size 2 to a size 4 in a matter of about 2 months. She is walking everywhere and there is not stoping her now, After her surgery, she has had so much more energy, it is truly amazing, so we have already had some good come out of her surgery.

Wildlife Safari

Wow!!! I can't believe it is the middle of July already. We have been so busy lately . Alexandrea's big brother flew in from Oklahoma to spend part of his summer here with us. We are all having a good time. Alexandrea is loving her big brother and is hilarious at times with him. On his first day here she kept saying hi and bye, it was pretty cute.

A you can see above, she is pretty proud of herself, She is finally walking and taking up to about 10 steps independently at 20 months. We are so excited to see this change in her. She is still pretty tiny though and is not quite 16 lbs.

We recently (well in June) did go to Portland for a few days, We met with the genetic dr, the gi and were also seen by the eye Dr. All of her appts went as well as could be expected, We really did not learn anything knew but came away that what we are doing for her to gain wait is what we need to do, so we just have to keep it up.
When we were in Portland, her Auntie Karen showed her how to play with the measuring cups and put them on her head, well she discovered my drawer and as soon as she saw the measuring cups, they went immediately on the floor and then to her head. it was pretty cute.







She also has recently had her first Popsicle. She thought it was pretty good.




Today, we went on an adventure to Wildlife Safari. It is a awesome drive though animal park. They have over 550 animals there, from Lions, tigers and bears, yaks, buffalo, rhinos and many many more. You drive though this park, some animals are behind fences but other animals can walk up to your car. Its kinda like Jurassic Park but different too. You just can't get out of you car.






In this park, the speed limit is no more than 10 mph and you are allowed to remove kiddos from their seats to see too. Alexandrea loved to see all the animals.



I have so much more exciting new to report but it will have to wait for now.
keep watching.

We still are having feeding issues but is slowly starting to eat a few more things here and there at times. her weight gain has kinda been at a stand still or so it seems and weighs in at 15 lbs.

We went to the Oregon Coast this weekend. The weather when we got to the coast on Friday it was fairly nice, but it was very windy, so we did not go down to the water, Friday late night it poured down rain Saturday day was cold, wet and clear in the afternoon but again very windy. Sunday finally cleared enough to venture down to the beach .
