Stellan is a adorable baby boy that has been in SVT (really fast heart rate) for 3 days now. The doctors are running out of options and need a miracle...PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!

I'm thinking about what my next post will be...

There is nothing new here so I am trying to come up with a creative post! Stay tuned tonight for a creative post...(maybe).

Madison had her 6 month post surgery check up today. I have been a nervous wreck for days about this. Even though she is doing so well, I still get nervous! You never know what is going on inside her little body. So we got there and the echo technician gave her her echo first and she did perfect! Except at the end when they have to get this weird view from the neck. She talked and cooed to him the whole time until he touched her neck and then she really told him whats up!! Then the nurse took us to the other room and asked how she is doing and I said "Perfect!" So, she wrote that down and did the EKG twice because she messed up. Madi was perfect through both EKG's and her weight. (19 lbs, 13 oz., she lost a few oz. from being sick!). So then we waited for Dr. C (the most perfect wonderful doctor in the world!) to come in and she said...

#1- No parent at her office ever says that their child is doing "perfect" after open heart surgery. She is SO impressed that she is doing everything a 9 month old should do. She is very happy that Madison is perfect and has NO issues what so ever (because that is rare).

#2- If it wasn't for the slightly leaky valve, she would never know that she had a heart disease!

#3- She does not anticipate that Madison will EVER need another surgery ever again! (and since she can't say 100%...worse case scenario would be a valve replacement late in life in the cath lab)

#4- We do not have to come back for another echo for a year!

#5- She put Madison and her heart in the PERFECT category!!! (This is amazing to hear coming out of a cardiologist's mouth!)

So today has been a PERFECT day! I am so blessed to have such a perfect baby!

****Thank you so much to all my readers...I appreciate all your wonderful comments and your prayers! You are all PERFECT in my eyes! God Bless you all!****

Madison is 9 months old!

What is this big 9 month old up to?

*As you can see in the photo, her hair sticks straight up!

*She waves at everyone and everything!

*She gives kisses to everyone and everything

*She says "Mom", "mama", "dada", "Uh Oh" and "Grrrrr!"

*She is still 20 lbs.

*She just started to army crawl, and she whines the whole time! Such a drama queen!

*She went on her 2nd road trip this week to West Virgina (I'll post about that later)

*She has quite the temper when she doesn't get what she wants.

*She is down to 3 nursings and 3 meals a day.

*Her favorite toys are a book of pictures my mom made for her and an old beat up white stuffed animal my grandma gave her. She talks to the bear non-stop, waves at it and kisses it!

*She seriously is the happiest baby I know!

*My husband and I are head over heals for this munchkin!
