The pregnancy was rough after finding out about Isabelle's DS and heart defect. I didn't understand and there were a lot of "God...why me!". The diagnosis was extremely hard to accept in the beginning and I went through some very tough emotions. Some of those raw emotions I am not proud of and they are hard to think about to this day, but I have/had to let go of the guilt and know that I always loved Isabelle from the beginning (zero doubt about that!). She was always the daughter I was meant to have. I just needed time to realize that.
|OHS- Sept 2011|
Isabelle is getting a lot stronger and she is doing new things every week. It takes her a little longer to do the same things a typical baby does but she is getting it and we celebrate BIG. Just this week, she finally decided to get into a sitting position from lying down- properly- and you would have thought we had won the lottery. The thing is... this little girl is stubborn. She knows how to do a lot more than we give her credit. She just wants to keep everyone guessing as to when she will decide to show us.
|Can anyone say Gymnastics might be in this girl's future?!?|
I love watching Isabelle interact with people. She is so loving and has such a big personality. She loves without holding back. I am becoming a better person because of her!
Sister is amazing and I believe that others will see that too!
