Prayers for Gracie

My little sweet potato has a yucky stomach virus. I feel so bad for her. She has a fever, bad watery diarrhea and is vomiting. We are really going to have to watch her for dehydration. My butterfly had a one day version of it last Monday. I pray that it leaves quickly and that we are all clear of it when we take our vacation. Gracie threw up on her birthday and has been under the weather since. I had associated it to the bug Ki had and then thought it was due to switching her to cows milk. Oh well, please pray that she is feeling better soon cause this is really wiping her out. She is so pale.

Life and Milestones

I have been so negligent at writing in my blog. Actually my computer time has been very limited with having the kids home for the summer. Being on the computer is actually a major destressor for me and I can take some time , refocus and get back to the task at hand.
So much has been going on and I need to do some major catching up. I have also not had a chance to read my friends blogs and see what is going on in their lives.
Our biggest news has been that little miss Gracie has turned ONE!!! Can you believe it? This past year has flown by so fast and I already miss having a little little baby. Don't get me wrong. I love this stage she is going through. She is discovering everything and learning new things every day. I keep thinking back to the day she was born and how God had his hand in it all. I am so thankful that I was still in the hospital when she went into distress. I shudder to think how I might not have even know if I had still been at home. God was there the whole time. Even from the moment of her miracle conception. I am so thankful that he chose to bless us with our little miracle girl. I just encourage anyone who reads this that may be struggling with infertility. God knows more than any Dr. He has the ultimate say. He can take the impossible and make it possible. Don't give up the Faith.
We had a cute little party for her and Delaiah who is a friends daughter. Their birthdays are one day apart. I will try to share some pictures of that later.
Little miss is majorly cruising furniture, saying and waving bye and she says yaaa like a little dutch girl. She loves to laugh and make us all laugh. I love when she is sitting and playing and cracking herself up. She got a little push toy for her birthday and she moves pretty fast with it. We went for her 1 yr check up on Thursday. She now weighs 18lbs 10 oz and is 27 3/4 inches long. She is just going to be a petite little thing. She got her shots and she has reached all of her one year milestones. That is such a blessing considering she was a preemie. She had lagged behind for a while and I had concerns. I even had someone suggest that they thought she had CP. I knew that was a lie straight from Satan. This child didn't have any of the symptoms and I actually talked to my Dr. about it this last visit. He was like NO WAY.
She is growing and learning and did I mention she loves to eat? She hasn't met a food she doesn't like. You can not eat anything in front of her without her wanting some. She even is alerted by the sound of wrappers. Lucky for me she loves veggies and fruit.
I will post some pictures later for your enjoyment.
