Does she know how to rock a pirate patch or what?

So, many of you have been asking for a Reid update...Here it is...

My baby girl is rocking...Literally- her eye healed much quicker than expected, she has a new lens in now that is allowing her to see & she is rocking wearing her little pirate patch...She only has to wear it half of her waking hours, {impossible to track/know what that is right?} & I've been decorating the patch to match her outfits when I can...Also you will note the patch is now on her other eye {her good one}- theory there is you patch the good eye so the brain learns to see using the bad eye...



The first week after her surgery was tiring...I had to put drops in her eye every 2 hours- so between that, nursing & taking care of Noal, this mumma was exhausted...The docs seem overly pleased with her progress but warn me we still have a long road ahead of us...All of the doctors, nurses, specialists, etc, since Reids birth have been so great & we are so thankful that we have moved to an area with all this right at our doorstop...I cant imagine going through what we have with Reid in the little remote town we use to live in- we would have had to travel so much & that added stress would have been a lot...

So, Reid really is doing awesome...And speaking of awesome..How beautiful are those Letters to Reid...She is going to cherish those so much when shes older...The letters are meant to show her how loved & special she is & in a way they have done that for me also...Some have wrote beautiful things about me & Craig and I just wanted to say thank you...Really...I hope that we can live up to what some of you wrote...I will cherish them like Reid will...I will also find strength & encouragement from them on days I need to & I will feel the love yall have for me & my little family...
 
So thank you....





P.S- On the note of awesome...My dog has got to be the best...Come on, right?
