Newsworthy? Probably not, but hey it's my blog.

First off, my wonderful, loving hubby got up and fixed my Christmas tree lights for me (after a little more mocking which I will take if my lights get fixed.) All but the bottom string work now.

The second big thing is that we met with the neurologist at Lucile Packard for Samantha. This was a much better meeting than the last time though I got the feeling that the outside neurologist we went to for a second opinion called him. In any case, I feel like we are on the same page now - he even gave us a direct line to call if she has another seizure (which she won't - she told Bill she was done with that.) He also feels like we should hold off on medicating her since it's been another few months without a seizure. If she does have another one though, then we would be back to talking about medicating her for a year.

Lastly and this was the most emotional for me, we turned the girls carseats around. They are no longer rear-facing infants, but full fledged forward face toddlers. They LOVED it! They thought it was hilarious that they could see Mom and Dad, swing their feet, and see the cars (and a train) in front of us. And while I am 99% happy about it, there is still that 1% of me that is sad because it's one more piece of their infancy that I'll never get back.

Wow. Sounds like big news to me. Great on the Xmas tree, really great on the neuro, and isn't it cool to have them forward-facing? I remember being so happy...

Jennie, You are so right - it's only been one day, but having them facing forward is so much nicer. I can actually see them, and they can see me.
