Grandparents are the BEST!

Holland and Eden are so lucky to have two sets of grandparents in their lives who love them and take such good care of them. It's been so fun to see their relationships blossom over the past year and a half. Holland especially has quite a thing for her Papa right now. She'll climb into his lap and sign, more, more, more, as he reads her book after book.

There are a few things I wanted to write updates about. First, we are all healthy! Eden's virus turned into an ear infection, and she is about halfway through a course of antibiotics. She is finally getting back to her silly self. Yesterday we noticed how funny she thinks she is. She will do all sorts of tricks to make everyone laugh at her, then she just smiles the biggest cheesiest smiles. It is too cute.

Eden still isn't having any part of eating solids. Holland went through the same thing when she was sick, but now has her appetite back (as little as it is). I really hope that Eden will spring back too, and that it hasn't developed into too severe of behavioral issues with eating. Wish us luck.

I am soooo excited about the progress we have made in raising money for our WalkAmerica team!!!!!! You all are so amazing with the love and support that you have shown us. In less than 24 hours we have raised $400. That's money actually received, and we have pledges for much more. We also have quite a group of people who have committed to walking with us on the 29th. Anyone else???

I just spent the past 3 hours reading your entire blog. All I can say is WOW. I admire your strength and courage. Your girls look happy and well loved in spite of the the hardships they have faced. I think your love for them shows in every entry of your blog.

It is a blessing when children have wonderful, loving grandparents.
I know that Holland and Eden are doubly blessed. :)
Lots of love to you all.


p.s. I'm glad you all are feeling better!

I love looking at blogs like this. When you're a neonatologist and you have a bad day, it's nice to be able to go on the web and find examples of why you do what you do.
