(Oh yeah, this is me walking! I can do that now!)

I know all you loyal followers have been disappointed lately since I haven't had any new posts since October! You can blame my Mommy...something about teaching first grade and not having any time. She says she promises to do better in 2009! Check back VERY soon to see Halloween, Christmas, and some other funny pictures of me!

I made it through my surgery just fine. Although I had a few hiccups along the way, I am now back to my old self:  Giggling like little girls should.

Playing with all my new toys. My Mommy's dear friends came to see me!

Poppa taking me for a ride in the wagon.

More fun in the wagon.

Update on Nola

We just got back form my appt with Dr. Muhlbauer. My brain tissue is growing so much that it is starting to interfere with the proper drainage of my shunt. I will have surgery on August 20 to move my catheter in my shunt so that it is away from the growing tissue.

Please pray for me and my Mommy & Daddy.


I LOVE MY WALKER!!!!!!!!!!!!
