6 Months...

Yesterday was Ollie's half birthday.

We are richly blessed!

We've had 6 months of this smile.

6 months of her crazy giggles & hair.

Yes she spit up...spit happens.

6 months for the chub rolls to finally appear.

6 months as a family of five.

6 months of learning about the real joy of Down Syndrome and siblings sharing in this joy.

4 months of heart failure + a 5 day hospital stay = 2 months of a healthy heart!!!!

I just look at our children & I am just in awe of their beauty.  They fight fight a lot, they play a lot, but they love more than anything.

When we debated on 3 kids, we really were unsure if we wanted to take on more.  Now, I can't imagine life without these 3, especially Miss O.  God is so so so so good & I praise him daily for my life!


  1. Happy half-birthday, beautiful girl!!!! I love her smile - it's got me grinning here!!

  2. Oh I could inhale her a second!! Those chunkin' thighs .... yummy!!

  12. Happy half birthday beautiful girl! I am so glad I get to look forward to seeing your smiles here. And happy day to you and your family Annie! Ollie and Cora are only a month apart, and have so much in common so far (heart failure, OHS, 5 days in the hospital). But it's wonderful that those days of worry are now in the past. So excited to get to see Miss O as she grows. Thank you for being one of my favorite blogs!

  13. Your children are the very best gift God could have given to you! I love their beautiful smiles! Anne
