Adjusting to a New Life

I'm not sure Charlie could be doing any much better than he is. He's been right on track with sleeping ever since we got home. He's been eating like a champ. We've removed formula from his diet, and he's on all table food now. He really is a good little boy.

We took him to our pediatrician, Dr. Bradford, on Monday. He has gained a pound since we've had him. The most encouraging news is, that once again, we were told his heart seems normal. Dr. Bradford heard a normal heartbeat and also believes his ASD has healed!  We scheduled an appointment at a cardiologist tomorrow morning so we can get an echo-cardiogram and find out if it's true. We pray it's true.
 
The weekend was very busy with friends and family meeting Charlie and bonding. We had a special visit from one of my dearest friends, Mo, and her family. They came in for the day on Sunday, and we were so thankful to spend some time together. We don't get to see them often. The timing that they were in Orlando on business was too perfect for them not to come down for a visit. Charlie had his first swimming experience at the DeBonis' pool that day too. He loved it!  He never missed a beat as Daddy swirled him around in a little inflatable boat. He truly just goes with the flow.
