Time flies with a face like this smiling at you all the time


Yesterday she was officially 5 months old.

A lot has changed since she was born in February.

She conquered heart failure, then open heart surgery.  She has picked up my tiny town and shook it - everyone knows her name.  They have prayed for her and in return love her like their own.  When you truly take up prayer for someone its amazing how you in turn love that person. 

So many people have a new understanding of Down Syndrome because of her sweet heart.  People all over the world, literally, have been impacted in some way by her.


Last night was the first night in her crib.  I didn't sleep well because I worried all night long.  She had been in a bassinet in our room before.  She slept like a champ & didn't mind her bed at all. 

Then, today she rolled over for the very first time.  She's been working at it for weeks but can never get all the way over because of her arms.  She went back to belly - that's right she's a rock star my friends.
She's growing up too fast.  It makes me sad.  I hope she lets me rock her for a very long time - I am not ready to have a big girl yet!
