we got the results from lili's blood test back yesterday when we took her in for her 2 week check up.
and she does, indeed, have down syndrome.
it was hard to hear it definitively...i wasn't expecting to cry about it, but i did cry a bit for the 1st time.
in other news, yesterday her umbilical cord finally came off.
it looks so much nicer now.
she has such a nice little round belly :)
she gained almost a pound, too!
grew an inch.
she is healthy in every other way.
and she smells so sweet.
she makes little "seahorse" sounds.
not like we know what a seahorse sounds like, but if we did, we are sure she sounds like one.
a rare land seahorse.
we call her "crusty, the seahorse", a squeaky feminine creature
and here is her theme song this week:
"i like to eat and i like to poop and i like to sleep and i wonder where i am and who i am and who you are..."
we love her so much :)
