Bristol Palin's Blog

Last month was Down Syndrome Awareness Month and Bristol had asked people to send their stories about Down Syndrome and how it affects you.  I sent her Meladee's story and found out that she posted Meladee's picture on her blog.

Here is the link to it:

In three days she will be 2

Hard to believe she is going to be 2.  

Meladee is now 2!

Ever since Meladee turned 2 she has started doing new things.  It's funny to watch her.  Here are some pictures I got done.

Meladee is almost 2, where has the time gone?!

I was sitting her tonight going through her blog and looking at the pictures and just thinking about where the time has gone. 

16 months ago she had open heart surgery and spent two weeks in the hospital and when you look at her now you would never know that even happened.  Her scar looks like and old scar.  I will have to take a picture of it.

In November at Thanksgiving she was just doing her army man crawl to get around and just then 6-7 months later she was walking and now she is running and thinks it is funny.  Hard to believe how much time she has made up for considering it was about two-three months of her taking it easy after surgery and have to make up for that time.  And boy has she.

She is not a talker yet but gets her point across very well.  She is at the point where she doesn't want to be feed at all and is changing her choices in food.  Never know one day to the next what she is going to eat.  Lord help me when she does start talking.

The fourth of July weekend I took down her crib and she is now in a twin bed and she loves it.  She did not have enough room in the crib with the way she sleeps and now she has more than enough room and sleeps a lot better.

Now I am planning her 2nd birthday and I can say time goes by too fast and not sure I want it to slow down.  I am enjoying everyday and love seeing what she comes up with to do everyday.

Look at me

Meladee doesn't like having her hair brushed or put up so today we cut it short.

Minor hair change

Grandma and I decided today to give Meladee bangs.  She isn't pulling on her as much since we did that.

Easter, Disney and more and more all the time with Little Miss Meladee

So, Miss Meladee is now walking, well not just walking but trying to run as well. 

She is also 13 months Post-Op from her Open Heart Surgery and at her last appointment in Feb she was given the all clear for six month so we go back to see the cardiologist in August when she turns 2.

We went to Florida in March and Meladee got to meet her family and friends that hadn't met her yet and she had a ball.  We also went to Disney World.  She did really well on the plane so in a week she was in Seattle, Chicago, Orlando and Titusville and in Georgia and South Carolina.  She loved Disney World and got to see her favorites such as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and many more.

Easter was a blast, we went to our cousins house and they did an Easter Egg hunt and they used hard boiled eggs and plastic eggs that had jelly beans in them.  She figured out the difference and she would throw the hard boiled eggs. 

Now it is the start of May and the weather is getting nice so it will be time to be outside more often, we know she likes the swings.  She also will be going to a day camp in the summer for a week. 

In three and half months she will be two years old and we are starting to plan the party for that one as well.
