This Thursday she also has another audiogram. These next couple audiograms are really important because this is when you usually start seeing hearing loss. We have faith that she won't have any and all will be well.
We met with the neuro oncologist today. He did a neuro exam on Jaylie and looked at her head and scar. He said all is well and her last MRI looked good (her brain and how it looks now). They will do more intensive exams when chemo is over. He checked her reflexes right under her knee and hers didn't bounce up like it normally does. He said its pretty normal to not have good reflexes during chemo. It's crazy how it's affecting her body in ways we don't even realize. Anyways, we were glad for the good news, she is doing so well.
We are ready for Christmas around here! Shopping is done and our home is decorated! It was so fun to actually do a tree this year (the past 8 years we have been gone for a lot of December). The kids are loving it. We have been reading lots of Cheistmas books too. We read one the other day and it was the story of Jesus birth. The last page showed a picture of baby Jesus and it was a real photograph of a real baby. Jaylie was saying how cute he was in her baby voice and was going on and on (she loves babies these days) and then she turned to Crew who was sitting next to her and told him that he was cuter and hugged him. She said no one is as cute as her little Crew :) She is a sweetie.
Jaylie went and got her Jammie's on by herself tonight and told us not to look then had Kip and I close her eyes while she came in and showed us her "surprise". She had put on her jams that say I Love Mom and Dad :) then she came and gave us big hugs and told us she loves us. It was so sweet! She hadn't ever been a cuddler and you wouldn't gave described Jaylie as super sweet but she has gotten so much sweeter through all this. I would say she is one of the sweetest little girls ever. She is always so sweet to us as parents and to her little sister and brother. I'm so thankful for her and love her so much. I am amazed everyday with her and her attitude and how well she is doing.

Our Christmas tree. It is silver and red. I wanted to do blue and silver but Jaylie really wanted it to be a Christmas color and she said blue was not Christmasy:)
Jaylie chose her outfit :)
