Lizzie meets Santa Claus!

On monday, back up to Primary Children's we went! Lizzie had her monthly checkup with the cardiologist. This time, they had to put her to sleep (cause ya know, babies move around a lot) they did a sedated ECO and an EKG. Her heart is in the same condition they found it when they first looked at it. This is actually a good thing, even though every time we meet with the heart doctor we hope to hear that her heart has just healed itself, we are just grateful there were no new surprises and she is able to wait until she is a little older to get heart surgery. The doctors tell us that she has an Atrioventricular Canal defect (AV canal) this defect basically means that she has a hole in the center of her heart. {*one-third of all children born with AV canal have Down Syndrome} This defect also can include abnormalities with the valves in the heart. Lizzie has one big valve where she should have two. She will have to get open heart surgery, where they will go in and put a patch in the middle of her heart and somehow separate the one valve and make two! The doctors want to do the surgery in the middle of February. Even though I'm not very excited to live at Primary Children's again, I am extremely grateful for such an amazing hospital and amazing doctors!

Lizzie's Big Day..

On sunday, we blessed our sweet Lizzie Jane. We talked with our bishop and decided to do it at Clay's parents house and keep it really small. It turned out great! I am so grateful for such an amazing husband and worthy priesthood holder. Clay gave our baby girl a beautiful blessing and there was not one dry eye when he finished. He loves his baby and is so proud. We feel so incredibly blessed to have this perfect baby girl in our lives. She is the best, easiest baby anyone could ask for. She hardly ever cries, sleeps all the way through the night, takes her bottle and even nurses like a little champ! She is nothing but pure JOY!  

Oh so pretty...

Lots of love and support...

Thank you family & friends for making Lizzie's day so special!
