Quick note

This is a dog that Ryleigh got from Becky Graham as a gift. The picture on the wall is one that was in Ryleigh's crib while she was in the NICU. A couple of weeks after Ryleigh had been home from the hospital I found the picture in with all her papers and so I hung it on her wall. As soon as she saw the picture she got a really big smile on her face! I told Becky this story and she sent this dog out not really knowing what the picture looked like. Isn't it crazy how similar the spots are?

We finally caught Ryleigh rolling over on camera! She hangs out on her side a lot but doesn't like to actually roll. In this past week she has cut two of her teeth! She has been so great during the whole thing you wouldn't even know they were coming in.

A message from Ryleigh

Hi everyone! This is Ryleigh, I just wanted to share some pictures from my busy week. On August 6th I went to a party for NICU graduates! Some of the kids there were in the NICU over 10 years ago!! While I was there I bumped into Javier, he was my neighbor in the NICU for a little while (and our parents used to go to the same ward). I also saw Dr Snyder, he's the one that resuscitated me, I wouldn't be here without him :) He was really surprised with my progress. This weekend I went swimming for the first time. It was a lot of fun but a little cold. welp, I'm gonna go play.

Join the cool crowd!!!
