I think I will call her, “Prima Donna Cheese!”

Never had this problem before…before Baby Sister came along, Grandpa and Grandma D used to be all mine! I never had to call dibs on snuggle time. I guess I better get with the program.

Not that we could ever forget, but today we had a nice sweet reminder of how far Baby Sister has come along when Mom & Dad ran into Dr. Kim from the NICU (who they came to know very well). I think we were all so happy to show her off and show how far she has come, especially to someone involved in saving her life. #115daysinthenicu

Daddy cringed after he heard the words, “the mall” come out of my mouth for the very first time, when I told him Mom took me Back-to-School clothes shopping at the mall.

While I was convalescing at home, Baby Sister was wreaking havoc in every possible way, but she had time to make me feel loved

She got nicknamed “Boss Lady” @ daycare. Okay…not really, but they might as well call her that. #howcomeshegetstohaveallthefun

After a couple of days of running a high fever, she’s back to being her mischievous self. Glad you’re feeling better, Baby Sister!
Still no symptoms that would appear to be pertussis so that’s good news.

Well folks, it would seem that we’ve had our first pertussis (aka whooping cough) scare. Both girls were exposed to confirmed cases of pertussis in the last week. We’ve been vigilant about staying on top of this, especially in Baby Sister’s case because of her vulnerability due to her history of prematurity. Both girls are up-to date with their vaccines and both girls began prophylactic antibiotic treatment 3 days ago. We’ve been monitoring their health closely. And though it would seem that Baby Sister has come down with a viral infection, it isn’t pertussis. Thank goodness. You can bet she’ll be getting lots of extra love and hugs to get her through this. Post-edit: Apparently, there is a difference of opinions on the parental front. I don’t think her symptoms are pertussis-related, but Daddy thinks they are. We’ll continue to monitor closely and keep you updated.

It’s July 29th…one year after Maya’s due date. Needless to say, we’re happy she’s here.
