A new Angel friend who just happens to have Down syndome!!! This is Taylor and she is 3 1/2 months old. Isn't she precious??? Ella and I got to go visit her the other day and are so excited that she only lives about 20 minutes away. She has two older sisters so Ella was in heaven that she got to follow them around and I was in heaven getting to hold this little sweetie. She does have a heart defect and will most likely be having her heart surgery in the next month or so. Her mom does have a blog that she is trying to keep up with but I am hoping that some of my blog friends who have been through this heart surgery can hop over to her blog and give her some advice/support of what is to come. Please go to http://litterals99.blogspot.com/ and see some much cuter pictures than the ones I got.
Here is Taylor and her sweet mom Erin

She just can't keep her hands off of her!!
Here is another question......Ella has been a good sleeper all of her life. That is, until about 3 months ago when she started waking up during the night. At first, I thought it was related to her anemia issue but when it didn't stop after that, I started wondering. In the back of my mind, I wonder if it is a teething issue as I have no experience with this since my other kids just poppped out teeth like it was nothing. I know Ella has been getting some molars but is 3 months a long time for this to be going on? Or is it an almost 2 year old bad habit that she is developing? I will gladly accept any input :)
Other than that, Ella's blood continues to look "normal" for 2 months in a row now. I never get too excited about being in the clear, but it is nice each visit to see the smile on the oncologist's face. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
