No wonder those pants are looking short!

Josie had her annual cardiology visit at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital bright and early Wednesday morning. No significant changes from last year. Her repaired heart is still working hard but her valve replacement surgery is still several years out. We were surprised to learn that since her last appointment, she's grown over 4 inches and gained 9 pounds!   

 Geeze.  4 inches and 9 pounds in one year!  I noticed with our recent cooler weather her jeans and sweatpants were looking awfully short.   

Grow, Josie grow!

Holy cow~ I am surprised she didn't have some bone/growing pains with that much growth. That's a good thing though- means the heart is keeping up with the body! That was great news- xo Diana
