Avery 3 months old

Avery has been doing so great. She is almost sleeping through the night all of the time (we are thankful for sure!) We have been seeing a lot of doctors lately trying to figure out how to get rid of the swelling in her feet. We meet with a physical therapy team this week. Last week we saw her cardiologist (which she got a 100%.) In December we will meet with a genetic doctor to see if there is anything that we have missed. Our doctor wants to be sure that nothing is wrong! I love her for that. I especially love that she continues to tell me that science and medicine has no answers for what happened to Avery. Although I am not sure if she is a believer, she continues to assure me that Avery's life is simply just a miracle that we will never be able to explain! I CAN EXPLAIN IT!!! JESUS!!!!!!! We still continue to tear up each time we share Avery's story. We are constantly asked about her each time we go to a new doctor. Or even just random people who inquire about her sweet swollen feet. So many are just in awe of her life already. It helps that she is so stinkin cute and happy all the time. I can't get enough of her. I would have to say, I would never want to go through all that we went through the past 3 years, but seeing Avery and seeing her smile, you can't help but marvel at the Love of Jesus! She makes each tear worth it! For sure...just as Dr. Cox preached at Carter's funeral...for every tear drop there will be joy. I can say for sure...I am almost caught up!

These pictures are from 3 months and from seeing Grandparents over her dedication weekend.

 Can't help laughing at herself.

Growing too fast

My sweet girl is growing to fast.  Tonight she sat up for 2 seconds by herself on my bed.  SHE IS ONLY 11 weeks old!!  Crazy girl. She is so much fun to watch laugh and smile and grin. We continue to be amazed at all she is doing. This past week we were at the doctors several times trying to control her reflux. Her doctor said that because she is doing things that 6 month old babies due, her reflux will continue to be bad.  Is this the same girl that wasn't supposed to be here and if she was, she wasn't supposed to be developing on target?  Still amazing to me.  We are headed to a few specialist to try and reduce the edema in her little feet. But besides that, she is a picture of health.  This weekend she is being dedicated at church.  We are so excited to have family her to celebrate with us.  I will post pictures this week of her from Sunday. In the are a few we have taken lately.
