My Cup Runneth Over

I have been told a lot lately that Hope looks a lot like I did as a baby and while I don't have much from my childhood, I did have a couple of Cabbage Patch dolls and one of them was wearing this dress that was mine as a baby. My heart leaps for joy.

Can you believe she is NINETEEN months old? I can't. She is so amazing. She is still just over 18 pounds but is a feisty one! She is smart as a whip and is already speaking sentences and I can already tell you we are gonna have our hands full with her!

I praise God daily for her and the miracle He has done in her...AND she is finally OFF Prevacid! She has been on it since she was 6 weeks old and we have taken her off a few times to no avail...she typically quits eating and sleeping both of which are a struggle anyway and she cannot afford to lose weight. Her prescription (that is ridiculously expensive) was getting ready to need a refill and we thought hey, let's try once more and see if she still needs it...well that was two weeks ago and she has been mostly sleeping through the night since (which she was NOT doing before) and is eating like a champ!

Praising Him for the little things as well as the big!

Hope truly is our little miracle girl Kristy. She brings me hope that God is in control over every thing. She is beyond adorable and I don't take lightly what He is doing in her life:) I love you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

She is so beautiful. Wow.

Side note: My boy is on Prevacid as well and I just got his prescription refilled for EIGHT DOLLARS. Turns out there is not a generic solutab available! So...should the little darling need it in the future at least know that it won't cost nearly as much. Whew.
