Fun Dip and Virtual Run...

Well Raygen tried fun dip.  She did pretty well with actually.  I know I'm feeding her straight sugar, but when your trying to get a kid to eat ANYTHING you got to start somewhere, right? It was really surprising she tried it because it was bright blue and the fact that it had a little texture to it, but she did :)  She also tried blackberry jam.

Also I have to thank my Grandma's for donating to Raygen's Mended Little Hearts :)  You can also join Raygen's team for a virtual race in February.  You choose how many miles and you have a whole week to complete it.  All the money earned also goes directly to Mended Little Hearts.  February is HEART MONTH so it's our time to raise awareness.   

Also don't forget to purchase your raffle tickets at the Silver Creek Buck Stop or Brenda's Country Market or send me a message.  Still plenty of time to win :)

Busy days..

Raygen playing with her cousin, Layton, at the office.
I thought this was cute.  I thought that this was amazing that Raygen wasn't screaming when Layton tried loving on her.
Raygen, Zoie, and I have been attending a class at our local college about social skills and autism.  This week was Raygen's first time going.  It was so fun to see her interact with everyone and to see her especially around other little kids.  I am still trying to adjust to allowing Raygen to play with other kids.  I am so used to our bubble and were comfortable there.  Even though Raygen can handle a cold better now after the Fontan, a cold is still scary.  I still want to avoid her getting sick as much as possible, but at the same time I hope I don't let that fear get the best of me and not let Raygen enjoy life to the fullest.

It is so exciting to see this girl come so far everyday.  She is growing more and more confident and watching all the little games she comes up with is so much fun.

She is so much fun

This is how our nights are.  Watching this girl dance and laugh is the best thing in this world.  I am always amazed how happy she is for all that she has been through.

My mom bought Raygen a chalkboard for Christmas and it seems to be a hit.  Maybe this girl is ready for preschool?  I, for one, am not. :0)
