The story of our precious little girl's 17 months of life with Trisomy 18 (July 4, 2010 - December 15, 2011) and of us, re-learning to live "after Lilly."
"I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made ...." Psalm 139:14

Happy 7 month birthday, Lilly!

Praise the Lord - Lilly turned 7 months old today! There have been at least 4 separate times when it looked like she wasn't going to live to see another day, but here she is. We are so very thankful.

Lilly was fussy most of the day yesterday and didn't settle down until about 1:00 a.m. I was getting tired, but was happy to wish her a happy birthday at midnight. I like my sleep but Lilly keeps it all in perspective for me. I don't usually get frustrated being up with her a lot because I know that it's such a miracle to even have her.

Sneaky Lilly pulled a double trick on me this morning. She had BOTH socks off!

"Praise the Lord! for He is good. His mercy endures forever." Psalm 107:1

Time to get ready for the swallow study.

  4. Your precious husband, in addition to all that he is dealing with right now, offered some wonderful encouragement to our boy I. I think it might a real impression on him because he knows that he has so much on his mind. Thank you for having such a beautiful family and allowing the Lord to use all things for His good and glory! Our son A is still sick and I've been writing on my own blog as "therapy." Happy birthday Miss Lilly!
