I've received so many wonderful comments about Weslee since posting the latest pictures!! One of the ones I've heard through the grapevine is, "she looks so real.." I guess I never thought people would think anything other than she would look real?? Anencephaly is so rare that not many people know what to expect.. I was one of those people who googled it the day after we found out. I told Ben the pictures of the other babies looked like tree frogs. (I can say that because I've had an anencephalic baby) Weslee did not look like those pictures... like I said in the last post, she was perfect in every way other than the back of her head. She looked like a perfect baby, just a tiny version... I'm still in awe of how a 20 week gestation baby looks; how Weslee looked!!
Lately I've been asked quite a bit, "are you going to try again, when are you going to have another baby, etc." The answer to that is..... medically I have to wait a certain period of time. Once that time is up we will let nature take its course. We've learned that it's out of our hands and whatever happens happens... we're @ peace with that!!
If you have any specific questions about our situation, how we're dealing, what the future holds, how Avery's doing : ) please feel free to ask.... I am one that likes to ask lot's of questions, my mom calls it nosey, I call it observant!! Obviously, I love talking about our daughter and am proud to share her story!!
I was inspired by your comments and chose a few more pictures to share with you all... the first one is a poem the nurses had with her box of clothes, beanie baby, blankets, & jewelry. The second is the hat she wore after she was born. You can see the size difference in my sisters hand and the actual hat. The final picture is one of my favorites. Weslee was created in love, she has her mommy & daddy's wedding rings on her legs. Look @ those toes, aren't they sweet!!
