Babysitter, extraordinaire!

What a big helper I had today! This was the first day that Mylie stayed with us. I graduated from high school with her Mommy. Since we had already experienced things with a "special needs" baby, I offered to watch her when Sarah went back to work. Mylie was born nearly 3 months prematurely ,has a congenital heart defect & has Downs syndrome. She is doing well, although needs to be on oxygen.

What a great helper Gabby was with taking care of Mylie! She has been asking since Mylie came for a visit on Sunday if she could hold her, so she was able to do that today. She also asked to feed her, but since Mylie is on thickened formula & has trouble with swallowing, she was a little disapointed about that. But all in all, I think she had a wonderful day!
