With all that has been happening lately, I thought i would post about Dakota's 2ND birthday party. He officially turns 2 on the 28th, but we celebrated his birthday this evening. He really didn't understand all what was going on. But when it was time to blow out the candles, i think he started to understand.
So tonight was all about him. If i would have been on top of things, i would have videotaped his blowing out the candles. It seemed to take him quite awhile...it was almost as if he didn't want to the flame to go away.
All in all, it was a wonderful time just to be with family and have some enjoyment, with all that has happened in this past week's time. It felt good to not be calling doctor's offices or insurance companies back and forth all day asking who received what paperwork and what else needed to be sent out, clarifying information, etc.
I find that when you have family, it doesn't matter what else you have...Having family makes me one of the wealthiest people i know....money isn't everything, it comes and goes...but family is always there.
For those keeping in touch on Lily's condition...she is doing better. Eating almost double to what she was eating at this time last week. The last 2 days she has taken in at least 10 oz of formula a day....she was barely taking in 6 oz in a 24 hour period. And she seems alot happier...I don't know if it is the medicine that she is on or if she is finally having enough energy to eat and having a full belly is keeping her a happy little girl.
