Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Therapy Update

Hello!  First I want to post a comment to my friend, Anna---happy due date day!  I hope Walker decides to come soon so he can meet his future wife!  :)  I can't wait to meet and hold him very soon!

Ok, I just wanted to write a new post to update you on Grace's progress with speech and physical therapy.  We have been seeing the speech therapist for a while now, and she taught me how to feed Grace and do some exercises with her mouth.  We went back today just to follow up and she said Grace is doing great!  Although she is not 100% where she should be, she's close!  The ST will continue to see Grace as we start rice cereal soon, just to make sure we don't have any problems.  We will see her again in three weeks.  As far as physical therapy goes, we officially started last week.  The PT taught me how to do different exercises with Grace to help with her hypertonia.  Basically, Grace likes to stay flexed, so we have been working on extension.  The PT was pleased that Grace has made progress in only a week!  We will see her again in two weeks.

I am one proud momma!  We have been working so hard with all our exercises, and we are making lots of progress!

And of course, here are some cute pics of my cute girl!


  1. Yay! Sounds like Grace is doing great! Adorable pictures! She is getting so big!

  2. I love Grace's cheeks :) My Gabe had cheeks like that but they've disappeared as he grew older.

    And my Gabe also has hypertonia, we started PT right about the age you've started with Grace. And while Gabe isn't walking yet (he's 22 months), he's close and therapy has been a God send!

    Grace is such a beauty. God bless!

  3. Oh, she is looking so good. Keep working, even though the steps of progress may not show to you, they are apparent to the therapists. They know when someone follows the exercises-I'm a teacher and know when a child really does the "homework". ;D...♥♫

  4. Such a sweet baby..Glad she is doing so good.. Just happened to look over at your writing while i was reading.. I was reading the part where you said that you were given the option to terminate..Makes you want to see If they could see her now!!!

  5. What a precious little girl!! I agree with Marilyn that the day-to-day progress may not be apparent to you. Don't get discouraged. You have to remember the "big picture" and how far she has come already.

  6. And I'm a proud fan of hers (and yours!) love y'all!

  7. I know I am a day late, but then it wouldn't be me if I wasn't, but HAPPY 4 MONTH BIRTHDAY sweet baby girl!!! We love you!!!Uncle Garry and Aunt Lesia
