Wow how time flies. I say that I swear all of the time, but it really does.
6 months ago on this very day - you were all praying like mad for Miss Tiny.
6 months ago Dr. Huddleston took her back to his operating room with a broken heart & God moved through his hands and handed us back a repaired ticker.
Since then Ollie Faith has gotten strong.
She went in at 10 pounds 5 ounces one day shy of her 4 month birthday.
She struggled the last month before surgery to simply put on 4 ounces.
Today she nearly weighs 17 pounds!! The weight comes so easily when your heart and body are not running a constant marathon to survive.
She rolls all over the house, she pushes up, she inch worm crawls, she sits almost independently.
Tomorrow she's 10 months old.
She's vibrant. She's happy. She's addictive. She's hilarious. She is a tiny diva. She rules the house. She lures strangers in with a two teeth grin. I can't say enough because words can't describe her.
Quite honesty she's unbelievably fantastic.
Some days I wish I knew back then how I would embrace Down Syndrome & how I would grow in so many ways from open heart surgery. But I'm ever so glad I never knew because this journey has changed my perspective, my life.
We are truly blessed - God knew what we needed most - the perfect baby for us.
Miss Ollie Faith!
