5 months



5 months ago today, my life changed. I can never go back. I can never forget. I've learned the meaning of true fear and true love. And I am thankful for each and every day I've been given.

My trip went well. Thank you all for your prayers. Andrew and his mom and aunt did a wonderful job taking care of Elisa and we were even able to skype a few times. My mom came over daily and took pictures to send to me so I could "see" her. She began eating like crazy while I left, and has continued that trend. We still struggle with a lack of a reliable schedule, though. She's still all over the place on when she wants food, sleep, etc.

We have our 6 month check up in a few weeks and then we'll know more on her weight. According to the Wii fit we've broken the 10 lb mark. And if you can judge by the way her clothes are fitting, I'd say that's about right.

Also, we decided to surprise mommy and roll over 4 times in a row!! On purpose this time!

We've also begun early intervention meetings once weekly. She's come a long way and is now tracking much better, grabbing for things in what seems an intentional manner and cooing. She's also begun laughing at things daddy will do, although a lot of times it sounds more like a cough than a laugh, but it's a laugh!

So here she is. Elisa Grace at 5 months old:
