Power of Prayer

I know it has been a while since my last post so I want to give you all an update.

I cannot tell you the incredible amount of anxiety I expected to feel while we move ahead on the process of weaning Caedyn from her Valium. While I feel it a little and think I will as long as we battle this disease, I feel your prayers more than anything. Thank you. Caedyn has been doing SUPERB with this wean. I have seen our daughter BLOOM more in the last month than in the last six. She is heaven sent. Well, she was before, as are all my kids, but you know what I mean. She is interacting with everyone three fold, holding her head up well and reaching like crazy. I think crawling may be just around the corner. We are working diligently at learning to self-feed but she just prefers to have mommy do it. Although she only has two teeth (Cam and her both have two front teeth coming in at the same time, so cute) she is enjoying mac and cheese, pasta, cheese singles and even a bit of turkey lunchmeat. Her meds have been going so much better as well. She actually swallows her pills whole and the process now literally takes five minutes. Amazing. I never thought we would come this far. EVER. Another prayer answered!

She is doing so well. We are so pleased and are thankful for all your continued prayers. We feel them!
And, because I hate blogging without a picture, here's a quick pic of my youngest cutie patootie!

Splish Splash

We had the opportunity to go to Splash Universe in Shipshewana, IN a couple weeks ago. We had so much fun. It was the perfect time to see if my notion that Caedyn would be a water baby was right or not. She has always loved her baths and I figured I would have to drag her out of the pool. My hunch was right. The child loves the water. Almost craves it. After a fun-filled day in the pool, she slept through the night for the first time in weeks; okay, make that months. The boys had a blast on all the water slides, making crafts and even dancing with a few characters on the dance floor. Case enjoyed the dancing a whole lot more than Cam, but that is our Case. He is fearless. He doesn't mind crowds and embraces a good time. I hope that is not the case when he is a teenager! It was nice to get away for a night and try and forget our daily lives. Plus, with Jeff gone at least a couple nights a week, we embrace every ounce of family time when we can!
