Littlest Hero Photo Shoot with Tamara (many pics!)

Our favorites:

Our best attempt at "The Train Wreck"

Abby & Marissa

Thanks again Tamara. You are an angel and we had such a fun time with you!!!!


Side note:

We went to Marissa's urologist yesterday for a follow-up on her kidney surgery from January. She first had an ultrasound on her kidneys, then we went to discuss the results with Dr. B.  

Dr. B said that the swelling has gone down significantly and he is discontinuing her prophylactic antibiotics.  We need to go see him for another follow-up in a year.  

Bottom line... her kidney surgery was a success!!!  

Praise the Lord!!!!!

Oh my goodness - those pictures are precious! I love the ones of her little jean butt. How cute is her smile, and even the sad face ones.

Glad to hear the urology appointment went well. It seems that urology is a common thread in blog-land lately!
