Getting to Know You


Despite the setbacks, RJ is tired but feeling pretty good. Blog central popped by for a visit and to bring him the cards and packages you've been sending which really helped cheer him up. Baby Courtney has been hanging out in his room and RJ is already showing that he's going to be an awesome big brother. It doesn't hurt that Courtney is an amazingly obliging baby - she just chats and waves her arms around as she surveys her new world. She had the first meeting with the cleft lip team and they've started to use tape on her lip just to keep it from getting wider before she has her first surgery down the road.

We think they make a pretty cute team!
