A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

1) We have spent the past few weeks getting our house ready to put it on the market. Whose bright idea was it to try and sell our house with three young children underfoot? Yikes, we are in for a wild ride the next few months. Luckily, we have had lots of help from family and friends; not only with watching the kids, but also their expertise and willingness to put in a little elbow grease to get everything ready. Thank you! Our next step is actually listing the house, and praying that it sells quickly. I don't know how long I can keep the house clean for showings without losing my mind!

2) Charlotte is doing really well. We had her Development Follow-up appointment last week at the heart center (we will go every 6 months until she is 3 years-old). All three therapists (PT, OT, SLP) were thrilled with her progress, as was the pediatrician. They did give us some things to work on, though so far, Charlotte has been making it pretty easy on us. She is a very motivated kid, who wants to learn and MOVE, but yet laid back and easy to work with--making therapy easy. We are thankful for that.  Her newest tricks? Laughing and squealing...a lot, and especially at her siblings. It is adorable the "conversations" she has with Katherine. Charlotte has also learned how to get up on all fours and rock back and forth. She thinks it is hilarious and is so proud every time she does this. The other night she woke up in the middle of the night, and when I went to get her she was up on all fours, rocking, with her eyes closed.

3) We scheduled Charlotte's finger separation surgery. It will be Monday, March 28th. I am pretty nervous about the thought of another impending surgery, though compared to open heart surgery this should be cake. However, it is never fun to hand over your baby for surgery, no matter how small. Thoughts and prayers please. 

4) I leave you with this...I love these girls!
