His echo went well. He obviously still has quite the leaky pulmonary valve (seeing as he doesn't really have a pulmonary valve), but his heart is doing well. Well enough, in fact, that we don't have to take him back for another year! That's the longest he has ever gone between cardiology appointments. I'm hoping that means that surgery will still be a few years away (last year his cardiologist said that his heart cath postponed surgery a "couple of years" so I've always kind of figured it would be sometime before he starts kindergarten).
Dylan has really grown up over the last year and a half. He used to be quite afraid of adults other than his dad and me. But he now seems basically over it. Still gets a little shy at times, but will actually talk to adults when they ask him questions (well, most of the time) and goes to his class at church without issue. He's even excited about going to preschool in the fall.
I made her a cake with some horses made out of fondant. I was actually pretty happy with that one. Needed to take more time when I painted the food coloring onto the horses, but I was still happy with them. Not so happy that I had to make the feet after they accidentally got melted, but was glad it wasn't more.
Happy birthday, Alyssa!
