Next update... Jasiu is quite the handyman... he even helped dad and grandpa with the swing set the kids got for Emily's 4th birthday...
Next... Can you believe my little girl will be 4 next week.. that's FOUR, I feel like she was a baby Jasiu's age just a few minutes ago and she is sooo big and smart. She is in the 95th percentile for height and weight so that makes her look like she is 5!!! Take a look :)
Finally, this Friday I had a very special play date at our house... It was a Heart Buddies play date ! I had 5 HLHSers all that go to Hope for their surgeries and are Dr. Illbawi alumni.
**Jasiu the youngest at 18 months - Post Glenn
**Austin - 20 months - Post Glenn
**Jonah - 2 years and 1 month - Scheduled for Fontan for October 1st.
**Kylan - 3 years and 3 months - - one year post Fontan
**Josie - 6 years - 3 years post Fontan and one year post 4th heart surgery
These 5 kiddos and two of their siblings Emily and Morgan (Austin's big sister) played so nicely together, enjoyed some pizza and snacks and the mamas got to talk in a language that a year and a half seemed foreign to me. We just "got" each other and were able to share stories and for those of us pre Fontan (which is fast approaching for all three) this was a great experience to talk and get a lot of our questions answered that even the doctors can't answer. In a heart community that recently faced so many heartaches, it was so refreshing to see these kids be so normal. It really gives a lot of hope.

Today we went to a Polish Mass in Indiana in our traditional Polish outfits and I think my little highlanders look so cute in their outfits (I may be a little bias here.. but hej.. it's my blog). Jasiu is quite the ladies man...
