Our Party Girl

Elizabeth has been busy as usual ,she is enjoying the warm weather and is spending lots of time outside playing. Elizabeth has been quite the party girl and has attended many social events; Olivia and Avery's 2nd birthday party, Owens birthday party and Auntie Maria's wedding. Elizabeth was a flower girl at Aunt Maria's wedding and did a wonderful job at walking down the aisle with Mommy and loved dancing on the dance floor with everyone. When Elizabeth got into her pretty dress and saw Mommy in hers she said "ooh Mommy and Elizabeth are princesses".
Elizabeth has wowed everyone with her talking and recently was scored as having language skills between 36-40mths which is amazing for her as she is only 27mths. Walking for Elizabeth is still a challenge but she is getting better each day, she can now walk across the room to her parents independently, she is getting proficient at bending down to pick up toys and is getting up with minimal help. Mommy and Daddy have to be creative to get her to walk independently her favorite games are playing mailman, grocery shopping and playing garbage man.
Elizabeth still continues to have problems with her reflux and still requires medication, we were hoping she would outgrow it by now but it still is a problem for her. Elizabeth also is waiting to see an ENT Dr. as she continues to choke and has to be watched closely while eating. We are not sure whether she has some scar tissue which is causing her difficulties or if she might be aspirating at times, as she can get quite panicked when it happens and she often goes bluish.
We are daily wowed with our princess and all that she has overcome.

It's so good to see Elizabeth developing so well. She's a beautiful little princess and it's clear to see how proud of her you are. She's overcome so many hurdles: a true little fighter.
With our very best wishes,
