She is also getting really good at eating her food with her fingers. :) She does pretty well when introduced to new foods. She is starting to get more vocal and I am wondering if she is going to be a fast talker like her brother. She also loves to make funny faces with her lips. And blow bubbles with her spit. She is such a joy in our lives! :) The other day I asked Isaiah if he loves his sister and he said, "Yes I do. I love her a lot!" :) We all love her so much!
We went to see Brooklyn's pediatric orthopedist on Wednesday and they did more x-rays. I was so proud of her for holding so still for her x-rays! Her hips haven't imporved at all since the last visit so he thinks it is best to go ahead with the surgery. As parents it is hard for us but we both agree that this is what will be best for her in the long run. She will go in for Surgery on May 9th. They will put her to sleep and inject a needle into her hip socket. They will inject some dye and this will show them a clearer picture of what is going on inside the hip socket (better than what they can see on the x-rays.) Anyway from there they will go ahead and put her hip into the correct position and cast her up in a full body cast AKA a Spika cast. It will go from her arm pits down to her ankles. She will be in this full body cast for 6 months. It will definitely be a long interesting journey ahead of us trying to figure out the best way to care for our sweet girl in a massive cast. :) But hopefully in the end it will be fixed and we won't have to do any more surgeries and she will be able to live a normal healthy life after this.
We want to thank all of those who have been fasting and praying in our behalf. We have definitely felt an extra amount of comfort and help from above in facing this difficult time.
Here are some pictures of her lately: The pics that I got of her on her 9 month old day were not very good, so I decided to add some more pictures from the past couple weeks. :)
These first pics of her were taken yesterday! So this is what she looks like most recent! Isn't she getting so big!
Love this sweet smile! She lights up my life.
She is pretty much always smiley and happy.
Love those big blue eyes.
Laughing while trying to grab the camera
Snapped a few pictures of her after I got her dressed one day.
I forgot to put her brace back on until after the photo shoot. :)
She was all smiles!
9 months old exactly
playing toys with her brother with food all over her hands and face. lovely. :)
Sweet girl on the day of my birthday.
Love her little personality!
Typical food all over the face picture. :)
Enjoying bath time with brother for only a few more days. After she gets her cast she will only be able to have sponge baths, so we are trying to take as many baths as we can and she loves it! And Isaiah loves putting bubbles all over his sister's head. She loves it too! So fun! I am going to miss giving her baths!
