My Baby is 9 Months old today!


I can't believe Grace is 9 months old. I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. She is so amazing. She is our joy! And the news that we received one week ago doesn't change that in the least bit. She is still our perfect little girl. Her smile lights up our world!

We've been dealing with so many emotions this week and it still feels very surreal to say that our daughter had a stroke. However, God has given us strength and continues to. We've been able to find some great resources and actually have been able to speak to some parents who are walking through what we are. We can't say enough how much we appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. We know how loved Gracie is and I know she feels that too!

Here is a picture of her and her daddy. She was the only girl allowed during the NFC championship with all the guys.

Here is Gracie in her cousin Ricky's hat trying to eat his phone! I can give her any chew toy out there and she prefers the cell phone. Hopefully by the time she is ready for a cell phone she will outgrow this habit. :)

She wants to crawl so bad. This was her attempt to get Ellie Mae's toys. She stayed up on all fours for a few minutes before she toppled over. We are so proud of her and her determination. She surprises everyday with the new things she is doing.

Tomorrow we have to take her to get a bunch of blood work done. We are also meeting with the VA Beach early intervention group to set up her consultation and hopefully get her PT & OT started soon. She has a EKG scheduled on Feb. 24th. That is the latest for now.

Hey Tiffany... hope the blood work wasn't too horrible for Grace today (and for you and Matt!) I can't believe Grace is already 9 months old. You better start planning her First Birthday (ehehehehehe)

Happy 9 month Birthday Gracie! It seems like just yesterday you were pregnant with her, and now look at this sweet lil angel. Still praying with you about all the testing and the therapy. God will bring you all through this!
Much love, Andi
