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."

8 Months

Happy 8 months baby girl!  What's up with Grace these days?  Well, she is in size 12-18 month clothes, and she is wearing size 4 diapers.  She is finally liking fruit!  She still loves her vegetables, and will sometimes eat 1.5 things of vegetables.  She is eating about three 6-ounce bottles, with sometimes one to two 2-4-ounce bottles after her food.

We changed therapy groups, so now she is receiving both physical and occupational therapy!  Changing groups was the right thing to do for Grace.  We are very thankful for our therapists, and Grace is making great progress with her development!  Before OT, she really didn't use her hands much, but now she is using them so much more!  She can sometimes hold in her paci, and recently for the first time ever she put her paci back in on her own!  That was a big milestone!!  She is also rolling all the time!  She can roll from her back to her tummy.  She is also really trying to sit on her own!  She is not quite there yet, but she is making lots of progress.  She is also focusing and following better than ever!

We also had a small vacation...we took Grace to the beach.  She did NOT like the was way too sunny and windy for her, but maybe next year she will like it!  Grace also celebrated Halloween by being the most beautiful ladybug I've ever seen!  I wish I had gotten a picture at our church's Paloween celebration when Grace got to see her Mamaw Rita, her Aunt Susan, and her Aunt Robin!  :)  They love Grace so very much, and we are so thankful for them (Mamaw Rita keeps Grace when I work).

Thank you all for your love and prayers for our baby girl!  Please join us in prayer for her!  Here are specific prayer requests for Miss Grace: the she would continue to make progress with her developmental milestones, that her vision would continue to improve (we have another vision appointment next week), that her shunt would continue to work correctly and remain infection free (we are almost past the 6 month period where she is most at risk for infection), and that she would continue to bring others closer to Christ.  We are so proud of our biggest blessing!


  1. She is so cute.. Love the chubby cheeks!!! Saying prayers for her.. What a miracle baby she is..

  2. She is beginning to look more like a toddler ready to take off. I love the fact that she is rolling around. That's good for her muscles, isn't it? Thanks for sharing her milestones with us.♥♫

  3. Just looking at her lets you know how Big our God is. She is a miracle with a testimony. God is going to use sweet Grace one day for His glory. I love her pictures. Praying for Grace and mommy and daddy.

  4. She's precious! Love the ladybug outfit :)
