Madison's 3 months pics and health update.

**Madison had her 2 month post surgery checkup today. She had an echo and everything looked great! There were 3 things that were of concern 6 weeks ago, 1-her valve was leaking, 2-her pulmonary artery was too small, 3-the hole (ASD) was still open. They found that 1-her valve stopped leaking so we get to take her off her meds, 2- the artery is still small but it is growing, 3- the hole is barely open and it should close they say by 18 months. Her doctor was SO impressed with how well she is doing. We don't have to go back for 6 months!!! She weighed 13 lbs. 4 oz. and 25 inches long...when the doctor saw that the nurse wrote 25 inches she said "no, that can't be right, that's so long!" We have such a tall baby! Madison is doing so many things now...holds her head up, almost rolls over, pushes off with her feet (she will crawl early i think!), tries to stand, laughs, coos, smiles, she discovered her hands and feet and is starting to grab at things! She is SO much fun! I love being a Mom!

Here are some of her 3 month pictures that Chris's mom took today...didn't she do a great job!

Aww I love the bottom picture and her little sly askew grin in that one. I'm so glad she's doing well Shannon! I hope all of her heart problems clear up sooner than what the doctors say it will take.
