Things have been somewhat busy in the Gourley house--I decided to start potty training Morgan. The other day Jason changed a terrible diaper and said to me that we needed to potty train her because her diapers are just terrible. So we bought her some big girl undies and there they sat in her drawer. Finally today I had it and thought now is as good as ever to try so off came the diaper and on goes the undies. Morgan did great today, only one accident! But towards the end of the night she was tired of sitting on the potty so frequently and just cried and whined every time we took her to the potty so we put a pull up on and called it a night. Maybe she will be a breeze to train---I don't think so, she doesn't quite understand that she can hold her pee I think.
As for Grace, she is doing great. She is drinking about 25cc a day, it is a big improvement. I tried some new bottles and she really seems to like Dr. Brown's. She is sleeping a lot better and even has allowed us to set a bedtime with her.
Last night after her bath she cooed for the first time!! I was thrilled and today I even got it on video, I'll post that when I feel like editing and putting it on the computer. Gracie really is a sweetheart, sometimes it is hard for others to see that because she is fussy and irritated most of the time, but those moments where she is content and happy she is just a doll! I can't help but staring at her and think of how much of a miracle she is. To think how remarkable she is to be here living with only half a heart, to have gone through so much and still have so much more to go through. Gracie is truly stronger than anyone I have ever known. Oh how much I love my sweet little baby---in my eyes she will always be perfect, defective heart and all!!
