Fit for a princess!

Quick update on the feeding situation. As of right now we are not doing a feeding tube. My ped talked to a number of our doctors. The surgeon said we should wait since she seems healthy. Pulmo wants to see her next week, she wants us to check sats while eating, and try a nasal steriod, since we know he nasal airway is tiny. I'm willing to try these things to avoid a tube for now!

Yesterday we got a package in the mail. I had no idea who it was from, we weren't expecting anything. When I opened it I discovered it was princess cookies, from a friend who knows how to do girl parties in style! My dear friend Mandy and her beautiful girls!


So of course we had to give the princess a cookie. Since she didn't get a first birthday party, she spent it in an orphanage waiting for us to rescue her, we thought she needed to play with a cookie!
She wasn't sure what to do, so we gave her a little help!



Are my hands dirty?

Cookies aren't too messy, but we sure had fun with it!
Thanks again Mandy, for our beautiful cookies fit for a princess!!

What sweet sweet pictures, I love her smile, she seems so thrilled. One can see just how happy she is, getting so much attention all of a sudden, she probably doesn't know whats hit her, but whatever it is she sure is enjoying it. A true princess!!!

Look at her smile.....what an angel!!! She is so precious!! Those cookies are great! What a nice friend!

I'm glad to hear that a feeding tube is on hold. I hope and pray that she does well and doesn't ever need one!

I was just wondering if there was such thing as a nasal steroid....Gavin's airway is very narrow, and lately it sounds like he's snoring, even when he's awake! I'm going to check with the doctor about this today!

Give hugs to your sweet girl and sweet boy for me! :)

Cookies fit for a princess=) Very SWEET (Arina, the cookies and your dear friend Mandy)!!!!

Yay on holding off on the feeding tube for a while. Your little princess needs some time to adjust. However, this is the one area with our kiddos that I really struggle with. Landon has NOT been very cooperative lately, ugh!!

You are so blessed to be surrounded by such an amazing community that loves you.The cookies are amazing and the photos,even more so!

Oh- those cookies look almost as sweet as the Princess herself!
Hey- just one feeding suggestion- you may already know/tried- but we give Abby Kefir- a sort of liquid yogurt- the consistency is great without all the added clumping problems with the thickeners we use. Just in case you have never heard of it- I wanted to suggest it!
