2010 was a very busy, very exciting year for our little family. It was full of many life-changing events. Here's a recap, in pictures:
January: Hunkering down from the cold and getting sweet kisses.
February: A visit from Uncle Brian and Aunt Julia, just in time for Uncle's 30th B-Day!
April: Rissa added pneumonia to her broken wrist. :-( Luckily, we caught it right in the beginning so it did not hit her as hard as in the past.
June: Rissa had her big surgery to reconstruct her airway. Just a step along the way to getting her trach out!
August: Sleep study, complete with goopy hair and marker on her face. Yet another step toward decannulation.
September: This was a huge, exciting month! It started out with a visit from Grandma. She stayed for a week and she and Rissa loved on each other lots!
Then, I started taking care of my friend's baby boy when she went back to work during the weekdays. Now, Marissa has a "little brother" to boss around!
Then of course, the biggest and most exciting part of the whole year: Rissa had her trach taken out for good! So awesome!!
December: One last milestone for the year: Rissa's first haircut. We only took about two inches off but it looks great!
