Praying for Stellan

Baby Stellan is in the hospital and is in need of your prayers. You can read his story here.

They started a name gallery to let his family know how many people are praying for him. You can see his name gallery here.

Wordless Wednesdays

Getting a bath is the BEST part of her day.

Getting dressed is the WORST part of her day!

Lots of updates!

I have been slacking on my blog so here are all of Madison's updates!

She started eating rice cereal 2 weeks ago. She LOVES it. She is so ready for food but we have to wait another 2 weeks. Here are pics from her first rice cereal experience...

We also started going to Mommy and Me classes! They are so much fun! We meet every other Tuesday at a local church. We have so much fun that we also meet on the opposite weeks at someones house. There are 14 moms and 14 babies...10 boys and 4 girls. Her are some pics of Madi with her boyfriends!
Madison got her ears pierced! She did great but I was a nervous wreck!
There is a new member of our extended family. Our good friends Natalie and Brad had a healthy baby boy on Saturday!

My blogging friend, Crystal is giving away 3 adorable hand made burp rags to help spread the word about Congenital Heart Disease. I have been praying daily for her adorable daughter Bentley. She has the same CHD as Madison. (TOF)

I miss her smile, her hugs and her daily phone calls.
I miss driving around singing RENT at the top of our lungs.
I miss our talks that could last all day.
I miss everything about her.
I miss my best friend.
When my daughter had open heart surgery the hole in her heart was fixed.
The hole in my heart from loosing my best friend can never be mended.
I just have peace in knowing that I will see her face again one day.
**My beautiful angel Nicole, I think of you daily and dream of you nightly. You were my best friend and partner in crime. Thank you for your friendship and never ending love. I will see you soon my love, xoxo.**
