“I shared a while ago that when I was pregnant, we found out on my 20-week scan that Hartford had a hole in her heart. And the week we had to wait to find out the gravity of the situation was one of the worst weeks of our lives. From this week’s echocardiogram, my strong little beaut has NO hole and a perfect, healthy damn heart,” Schroeder captioned a video of the non-invasive procedure being performed.

“She also loves her snacks,” Schroeder’s caption read. She went on to share some additional videos of Hartford and admitted she’s had an emotional week.
