Yesterday was February 14th, Valentine's Day. Also known in the heart world as "CHD Awareness Day: A Day for Hearts". I chose this very special day to celebrate Scarlett's 1st Birthday (3 days early). I had a HUGE party for her and invited half of the city of Phoenix. A ton of people came to celebrate and honor my little heart baby. What a heroic year she's been through. I still get choked up whenever I think about it. (including now).
Recently I had a couple of people comment that I hadn't updated my blog in a while. I told those people that I didn't think anyone was reading it, so I stopped updating it. The only way I know that people are still reading it is if they leave a comment...or if they tell me (in person) that they're reading it. So, I promised these people that I would start updating on a regular basis once again.
Afterall, just because she's had her second surgery [and heart-wise is considered stable for now], doesn't mean that people don't still inquire how she's doing. Speaking of how she's doing... she's doing great! She's eating, she's gaining weight, she's almost walking, she's talking/babbling more, she takes baths in the regular bathtub [instead of the baby bathtub]. Her favorite activity is watching her big sister Violet (who recently celebrated her 3rd birthday). My babysitter said that last week Scarlett said "Violet" twice when she saw Violet. So, now she knows "ma-ma", "da-da" and "bi-let". Absolutely adorable.
I will post pics from the party on my next post. But for now, I just wanted to say "I'm baaaack". So, look forward to more posts from me on a regular basis. : )
