Happy 7 1/2 Mia!

Mia's half birthday was yesterday and of course, the kids were so excited to celebrate!  It's hard to believe she is 7 1/2!  It feels like yesterday she was just a newborn and then we were struggling to reach milestones and now she's a beautiful little girl with so much potential.  Thank you Lord for our miracle. 

Even more cause to celebrate, she has been seizure free for a week.  Her new medicine is working and even though she is a bit tired, we will happily take that instead of seizures.  Here are a few pictures from yesterday.

Happy Easter

We had a rough Easter this year.  Mia ended up having a seizure and falling and banging herself up pretty good.  On top of that, the stomach flu made its rounds through our house.  On the Saturday before Easter, Mia started having multiple seizures during the day.  We ended up talking to her neurologist on the phone and he suggested we up her to the new dosage of meds immediately.  We did that and things have tapered off since then.  Now, because we increased her rather quickly, she's been super tired and out of it at different times during the day.  We are just praying for some normalcy to return to our home this week. 

In spite of all of this, we did have a really nice Easter.  We spent it in Palmdale with my brother and his family.  The kids loved looking for Easter eggs and we had Easter baskets on the table for them when they got home.  They were so excited that the "Easter bunny" had brought them such neat things.  Calvin commented the next day, "How can we tell the Easter bunny thank you?"  I said we could write a note and I bet the Easter bunny would get it somehow. 

What was the most fun for me to watch is how much their knowledge of God and why we really celebrate Easter is growing.  It's really starting to click for them and it's so neat to see them processing all of that.  We talked about how Friday is good for us, but Jesus had to sacrifice so much for us to make it good.  That really made sense to them this year. 

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
