This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

Experimenting With Hair-do's

This is what I call the "Pebbles Flinstone" look. In general, I don't particularly care for the little tuff of hair sticking straight up in the middle of the head on any baby. As my friend described it, it looks like a little tree on the top of their head. But when you add a bow in the middle, the hairdo is instantly transformed to Pebbles Flinstone. This is the first (and probably last) time I've tried this hairdo on Scarlett.

I should add that it took an act of God to get her to sit still long enough for me to capture these pictures. She is definitely a baby on the go and hates sitting still for anything, let alone pictures!

She is becoming an expert at standing up. She's on her tippy toes in this pic. She's also becoming a little daring at letting go and standing unsupported for up to 5 seconds at a time. I think she'll be walking in no time!

She is also starting to make the most adorable little noises when she babbles to herself. To my knowledge she still only knows one word: momma.

This is her other new hairdo. Unfortunately this was the best picture I had of her two teeny tiny little ponytails. She really does look darling with them, but her hair is so thin it's hard to get the little rubber band thingys to stay in her hair!

She's got two little ponies in this pic too, but you can't really see them...and as you see from her facial expression she was in no mood to be photographed.

She has a cardiologist appt today. I am really hoping and praying that she has gained weight from her previous visit (2 weeks ago). We've been feeding her butter with her Gerber food and I've been adding a carbohydrate powder to her milk for Pete's sake!  But, I will try my best not to break down in tears is she is still in the 14lb category. I will post again tonight with the outcome. Wish us luck!
