Chunky Monkey:)

Callie had a cardiology appt. on Friday, at which she weighed 21 lbs. That's my Chunky Monkey, we all have been working hard to get to that mark!!! Lots of trips to Dairy Queen, McDonalds and any other high fattening places you can think of:) Whatever Callie wants, Callie gets!!!! I believe Dr. Lacey was very impressed with that 21 lbs.

Callie from a cariac stand point is doing well, the only concern is still her lower left pulmonary vien. But, we will see what is going on with that in October when we go to California for Callie's 10th heart cath.

Next month, my Bean will turn the big 3!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it.....time sure does fly.
