Lucky 13

Kaidyn is now 13 months and doing so great! Could really ask for better! She's crawling around everywhere, pulling up and everything, and on her way to saying 'Momma' (I can hope anyway :) ). She has gotten her braces now and had them about two weeks. And what do you know... She's too strong for them! She can still pull up on her toes! So back to Central Texas Orthotics we go! They already had to add an extra strap while in the doctor's office. Since then we found that she can take her left brace right off! I don't know what we are going to do about her. I can tell she's going to be a climber because she loves to pull up and hang on/off things. She is the strongest baby I've ever seen!

This week she has been under the weather. Another viral infection it seems. We've been fight fever, congestion, cough, etc. No ear infection as of yet but I think its coming.

It's Been a YEAR!!!

Her Birthday Outfit
Too cool!

Also in remembrance of Kaiya Dawn who would have been 1 on 10/23/10

I can't begin to explain how this past year has been. Yes I can! A ROLLERCOASTER! And one I didn't want to ride but not can't seem to get off. Ups and downs, twist and turn and even some circles big and small. But what a GREAT year it has been. Kaidyn has been such a blessing! When I look at where this blog started, with such sadness and uncertainty, I can't help but thank God for his blessings in our lives. Kaidyn would not be here today nor doing so great had it not been for the Lord and his great mercy. I just can't thank him enough.

So now at the one year mark we are oxygen free with no last effects from being a 24 weeker that we can see. Well besides the developmental delays that are expected she is doing great! She's getting ready to get her braces here in the next few weeks. She's crawling!!! And wanting to walk so hopefully when she gets her braces she will be on the move in no time.

Thank you all for being with us through out this year. It seems like its been so much longer. Can't believe all the events took place in just a year. Please continue to pray for us and especially for Kaidyn as she progresses and plays catch up! Thanks again!
