It's been a while since I check in here. Amirah is doing great. Getting big... she weighs 22lbs! Doing great with all her developments, sitting, beginning to get to crawl like positions, beginning to eat via her mouth (just about 5 bites of food a day, but this is huge for her), and is generally a joy. She is also being weaned off her ventilator, and her pulmonologist expects her to be completely vent free by the summer.

Our big news is that we are moving from the NYC area to Austin, TX....in TWO WEEKS! We just found out yesterday that we are going. My husband has been out of work since November and has gotten an AMAZING job in Austin. We thought we would have about a month to get everything together, but they need him soon. Over all we are thrilled to be moving, but there is a TON to do and I will be moving far from my family. But its a exciting adventure for us.

That's really all that's going on for us.

Here is photo of her off the ventilator and on the trach collar...

Here she is "petting" our cat...
