What a week!!!

Daddy has been very busy on the computer so Mommy hasn't had much of a chance to update... until now. A lot has happened since Valentine's day. We had a bit of a scare on friday at the cardiologist appointment. Gabi hasn't been gaining enough weight still, so the doctor said if she didn't gain by today we would try to increase the caloric intake again, then if that didn't work we would have to tube feed her. But as always she waits till the last second to pull through. She gained 8oz. since last monday... that is fantastic! We are finally onto something good. She hung out with Mema and Papa on friday night. Mema gave her a good talk and told her how important it is to eat...ALOT. I told Mema that the next time we have eating issues I am sending her over for another talk.

Saturday we picked up Gracie and we went to Barnes and Noble in Topeka. They had story time and we attended with the girls, the topic was Down Syndrome Awareness. It was great especially since we had not addressed the issue to Gracie. We felt it explained it to her in a way that was very light and easy for her to understand. Gracie will tell you this... Gabi can and will do about everything I can, I just might need to help her more. Of course she doesn't totally comprehend, but what 5 year old (6 next month) can, besides Gabi is her sister and she will always watch over her! Just a little FYI...Gracie and Gabi made their debut on tv for the first time. The local news did a story about the D.S. Awareness, we are trying to find a link to view the story, but so far no luck...I will post it if I can get something. Our girls are stars already!
This is the first time Mommy and Gracie did my hair, so of course they captured the moment!
