Happy Heart Day!

Today is Addie's heart day! I can't believe it has been three years. How far she has come! You can read all about the events of her surgery here.

I have been reading through all the comments made over those several days during surgery and the recovery process...makes me kinda emotional to see how God has used those same people to raise Addie to be the amazing little girl she is and also those people who have helped to bring sister home! Pretty amazing!

Here is a picture from when we first got to see her after surgery. =(

Amazing how far she has come...mainstream preschool and Sunday school, walking, talking in two and three word phrases, running, jumping, climbing, dancing, recognizes her upper and lower case alphabet, and numbers 1-10, counts to 10...working on counting to twenty..but that's hit or miss. =) If she asks you to sing a song, 9 times out of 10 she's going to ask you to sing E-I-E-I-O....and she continues to give the best hugs and kisses! Her favorite thing right now is to go into her playroom and turn on her CD player and turn it up as loud as it goes and start's so hard to discipline her when I go in to turn it down and she puts her hand up and says STOP! I DANCIN! Love her!

Here she is on a recent trip to Chicago to see our good friend and amazing photographer Darcy Demmel
