All smiles and on the mend


Well today the doctor was extremely pleased with how Kaitlyn's foot is looking, and he says it's healing very well (though it'll take awhile to look "pretty" again). Hooray! She'll still need to finish her oral antibiotics (which occasionally make her throw up everything in her stomach, poor thing) and also will continue with the foot soaks and topical cream. Thanks to all for your encouraging comments!

AND, Friday evening, KAITLYN SMILED FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME! Who was her first smile for? Daddy, of course! Here's a goofy picture of her sweet smile on Saturday night.
(The other picture is of me and (three of) the kids watching "The Cosby Show" on Sunday night. We love that show!)

The Cosby Show is awesome! I think Bill should run for president! (Seriously).

Glad that Katie is doing better and I'm so excited for her first smile! Isn't that such a reward! It just makes them more precious to us even when we thought they couldn't be more dear to our hearts. (Oh, yeah and...two enthusiastic thumbs up to The Cosby Show! :))

Kaitlyn is growing so fast. I am happy to hear about her foot. There is nothing sadder than a sick child or baby.

Jenn said...

i am glad she is doing better! what a chunk she is! wow... she has really grown!

She is totally a chunk! This is hilarious because Anna was barely on the charts for weight for the first two years of her life. Kaitlyn is quite the opposite!
