9 pounds 1 oz.

This is our silly grin girl.... Makes you wonder what she is dreaming about.

Mei-Ling had her first check up with her pediatrician, well outside of the hospital that is, and all looks well. She is up to 9 pounds 1 oz ! The Doctor did say that her little heart "sings" .
We are still praying and thinking positively that the holes will seal up on their own.
The little lass was not too happy to have all her clothing removed and cried rather loudly during the exam. Needless to say she slept all the way home, just plain tuckered out from being poked and prodded.
She appears to enjoy sleeping most of the day but enjoys being talked to and cuddled most of the evening.
We sent Melanie and Casi off to see the new Shrek movie. Those two have had their share of difficulties in the past few months, so we thought they deserved a night out on the town. Melanie and Casi called many times just to check on Mei-Ling. Sorta made Emery and I laugh, reminded us of another couple, 20 some years ago, doing the very same thing the first time we ever left Melissa. She was with my mother and father for the evening and we called often and the whole evening all we did was talk about how much we missed her. In our whole married life, we never hired a babysitter. It was relatives we liked or NO ONE !
The cycle of life turning back for us to view now, from a totally different perspective.
Maybe that is when wisdom arrives , when we get to see things from a new view.

She is so beautiful. I'm glad everything turned out good at her check up. My prayers are with her and all of you.

Oh Patti, I am so excited for you and your family that Mei-Ling is home and doing well. I will have to get caught up on your blog and read what all has happened in the past week or so - but I have been praying for all of you and this is wonderful to check in today and see that she is home and already up to 9 pounds! :)

We are anticipating the arrival of our twins around june 7th so not too much longer for me. I will be so relieved to say the least :) ~Bonnie in SE Texas

Much To Catch Up....

In mid January, we saw the passing of my father and after nearly two years of caring for him, it was so hard to see him leave u...
