The other yucky aspect of their situation is that she and David have no medical insurance. David had started his own business, and they were still uninsured when all this started. I can't imagine what extra stress that brings to them. So I ask that you add that particular part to your prayers for them as well. I don't usually do stuff like this, but every bit helps, so I will say that on the carepage website they have instructions at the top as to how you can donate to this family, and it is tax-deductible. If you feel led to do so, every little bit helps and adds up, whether it is $5 or $500. David and I certainly know that with how overwhelmed we were at Brooklyn's birth.
Regardless, thank you for your prayers for my friend. This whole thing has really shaken me up, but I am also blessed beyond measure to witness thousands of people come together for the sake of one. Amazing. What a treasure it is to be a part of Christian Community!! It is what it is ALL about!

Morning snuggle-time to cartoons.
Brookyln's look here makes me laugh. It's like I can hear her... "Mom, whaaaaaat is your deal?"

Here is a video of how she gets there. I focus in on her feet and how she stands on them because I took this video last weekend to the hospital with us for her check up. Since she did NOT perform on cue like we wanted her to (and with 4 specialist sitting and staring, I don't blame her!), thanks to our therapist I came prepared with a video to show.
This is what I wake up to find every morning now!
Little playtime with her new Rainforest toy thingy. She looooooooves this thing!
But then she remembered how much she did NOT like this. But sweet baby sat REALLY still like we asked her too, no kicking or flailing.... just cried and cried until they were done.
R is OBSESSED with all things Disney Princess right now. But mostly the PrincessAndTheFrog. She saw the movie once over a month ago, and she is night and day ALL about Princess Tiana. We've had to find online games, printable coloring sheets, etc from the movie, and she found clips from the soundtrack that I had to hear OVER AND OVER for days. So, I downloaded some of the songs from iTunes and won Mother Of the Century from her. I took this video of her listening/singing the "Almost There" song (it's kinda long... mostly posted for Grandparents to enjoy) while playing a Princess Tiana game on the computer . She even sings the instrumentals. Crazy obessessed girl. :) And... she has already planned out her Princess Tiana birthday party.... 6 months from now.
Thanks for letting me be that mom who lets it be publicly known how precious she finds her children. I just can't help myself...... most days. :)

R showing B the pieces.
How R was resisting that big green monstrosity in the back, I will never know. But she went through all of B's stocking and everything first! B got some Gerber puffs in her stocking, and she is trying to eat through the package.
