Emma turns 15 months old on Monday. I cannot believe how fast it has gone. She is progressing well, but we wish she would gain weight faster. She loves to play peek-a-boo, blow us kisses, read books, and watch Playhouse Disney. We wish she could have joined us at the CHOC Walk on Sunday, but it would have been too much for her. It was a lot of fun, but you felt like a heard of cattle being driven from one location to the next. They estimate that there were 16,000 walkers. We ran into a lot of people we knew, including our friend Chance from Healthbridge. He was recently adopted and lives near our house. We will be attending his birthday party this Saturday. This month we finally started to receive home nursing for Emma. We qualify for 20 hours a day, 7 days a week, but there are not enough nurses to staff it. We are leaving weekends as optional in case we need a break. Alissa has benefited the most from the home nursing as she has been able to get uninterrupted sleep a few nights a week.
