She's almost six months. I can't believe it. If you're a parent you know what I mean.... it's going way too fast. I'm amazed at how are little doll is growing. She is precious and her smile lights up the room. Everyone told us that because Elijah was such a good baby our next was going to be difficult. They were wrong, Nessa couldn't be easier. She's an angel. (remind me of this post in a year, once she's learned the word "no")
We had her first therapy appointment today. I was curious what they would say about her development, but I felt she was doing well and not worried. God has been so faithful to her and I know he will continue to be. Overall they said she was doing well. Her mental development and social interaction they said was great. They did mention that she's a little smaller than they'd like and her muscles are a little weak. But they gave me some exercises to do with her and think with some help they will correct themselves. So, thankful!
When I look at her I can't always put into words how thankful I am for her and all it took to get her here. She's a blessing we do not deserve and she fills our home with joy. I can't say I was always thankful for the trial we went through with my pregnancy and delivery, but I am now. I have a deeper relationship with the Lord because of it and am more aware of his grace in our lives. There were things I knew about God, but now I've experienced them in a new way. He truly is the giver and sustainer of life. He loves and cares for my babies more than I ever could. And I'm continually learning to keep them with an open hand, trusting their lives to the Lord.
Every new life is a miracle, but there is something amazing seeing a glimpse of all it takes to bring these miracles into the world. We love ours.
