Dev Pediatrician

Friday we went back to KC to see the developmental pediatrician. I really do like the doctor and he was thrilled to hear how well Payton is doing with her medicine. He offered to put her on something for her impulsiveness (like Ritalin) but I said "No thanks". I told him if he could see where we were before and where we are now, he would be in shock. I definitely do not take for granted a day that goes by and Payton is sooooo happy. We have her set up to get her kidneys checked in February and Noel was gracious enough to give me the name of Abi's doctor, so I already feel more than comfortable with that doctor. Any time I know a doctor has seen another child with ws it makes me feel more at ease.

Here's a couple of pictures of Payton at preschool. Do you see how much her hair has grown? I'm really am so thankful Payton is able to relax now.

The above picture is when the kids all got to guess how many candies were in a jar. There were about 50 or so and I just had to show you what Payton guessed. Yep - EIGHT! And then after she proudly announces eight, she yells "That's My FAAAAVorite Number!" For us, there is nothing better than seeing a number "8" on a billboard sign, on the tv, etc. It truly makes her day :)

We go to see the dr on Jan 26th. Just before you get to go! I'll have to tell him to watch for a beautiful little girl who is our friend :)
I love the number 8 too now!
Merry Christmas!

Her hair looks great! FYI Avery found my super gigantic roll of xmas gift wrap that couple have lasted for 3yrs and unrolled it all. Those two need to spend some quality time together!!!
