Happy Heart Day

We just finished out Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week, Feb. 7-14. We celebrated by making cookie/treat platters with the other Heart 2 Heart parents and kids for the pediatric cardiology offices at Mercy Children's, Cardinal Glennon and St. Louis Children's Hospitals. I was also able to deliver the donations from the very generous moms in my Assumption MOPS group for families at SLCH in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.

Since Connie's about as bowling-obsessed as they come, Greg made him some bowling valentine cards to give to his classmates at his party yesterday. Here's a pic of it.

Connie's still doing very well at school. He rides the bus one day a week now and loves it. We had his IEP meeting about a week ago and he has done great with his goals. He will still receive a little PT to work mainly on core strength and speech/language will see him a little more to add some receptive language goals too.

He'll be four years old in just a couple of weeks. It's so hard to believe! I know everyone says that, but there have been times that we weren't certain we'd ever see this day. What a blessing he has been to our lives!
