Emma, our little Precious Girl

Let me start off by saying that Emma is so much fun!  She amazes me each day with things that she picks up on and how much she loves interacting with us.  She brightens our days!  I have had several long days at work here lately and what is so amazing is how she can take any bad or long day I have had and cheer me up just with a smile, or a reaching up towards me, or a laugh, hug, etc.!  She knows her mommy and daddy oh too well and the ways in which she can make us happy, oh and the ways that she can push us to get what she wants! ;)  But she has been a blast at home and she loves being at home just as much as we do.

Speaking of home, as some of you are aware, Sarah, Emma, and I bought a house in Texas.  (I wont put the address on here but if you would like it, just email Sarah at  It has been a great, stressful, amazing experience getting into this house.  It is our first new home!  Yay!  We have FINALLY moved everything in and are just unpacking and mainly organizing, the oh so fun phase!

As you read below, Emma's previous echo showed a little decreased heart function.  Our doctor was not too concerned by this, but wanted to watch closely.  We talked below about a medication, Enalapril, to help her blood pressure out which he thought may be a driving force in why it looked the way it did.  It was scary thinking about her heart not working as well.  You think about all the what ifs? and whats next?  Finally, we decided, as we waited for the next echo, we would just lift our concerns and frightened emotions up to God in prayer!  Her heart echo was a couple of weeks after the initial results.  After the echo was over, we got some good news.  Her heart function had improved slightly which put her basically back to her baseline!  Yay!  Definitely an answered prayer!

All in all, we are just enjoying each day with have at home and each day we have with our sweet little girl!  Going on walks outside, playing in Emma's room and game room upstairs, and so many more fun things.  Sarah even slid down the slide on our communities swing holding Emma!  So yes, we are enjoying life with our little girl!

We appreciate so very much all the thoughts and prayers and look forward to hopefully updating on here again soon!

God is good, all the time.  And all the time, God is good!
