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.

Growing Up

I can hardly believe that my little baby is already going to be 15 months old. She is doing so awesome. She's practically running now. She is drinking from a sippy cup, wearing size 9-months clothes, eating big people food, dancing when she hears music, and trying desperately to talk.

It's been almost two months since her last cardiologist visit. She is going for a routine echocardiogram and clinic appointment tomorrow. This will be our first 'official' visit with Dr. Pophal. Beth will be there too, but it will probably be the last time she sees Beth, because she has officially transitioned from the "high risk" category to "normal" category, and only needs to be monitored every 2 months. Maybe at tomorrow's visit they'll say that she can go longer in between visits?? Like 3 or 4 months?  She seems to be doing so fantastic. Such a blessing.

I broke my camera somehow on Easter Sunday. These are some of the last pictures I took. As soon as funds are available, I'll buy a new one, so that I can start snapping  and posting new pics of my little princess.

Other exciting news to date: We moved!! If you've been reading my posts since July of last year, you'll know that I was house hunting for 8 months. I finally found our dream home in Glendale, AZ very close to Cardinal Stadium also known as Westgate.  We moved in April 5th and I love it! The neighborhood is pristine and beautiful. Very family friendly. Beautifully landscaped and maintained front yards, nearby parks, and best of all, Scarlett's aunt and cousins are within walking distance (6 houses down the sidewalk!).  I will post more pictures later this week, and definitely more when I get a new camera.


  1. She is just so pretty! I'm so happy that she is doing well. And, congrats on the move! :)

  2. I've missed your posts! Scarlett is gorgeous and looks SO healthy! How very blessed you all are!!
