One chin looks good on me...



{For lack of better title on this post...} I had good intentions to post a family picture here today. I was happy that my Mom could snap a few of us before we went to church yesterday. But, I had the camera on the wrong setting and they all came out very blurry. So, I played around with some 'self-portraits' yesterday afternoon and instead I have this picture of me to post for my Mom. =) Sorry. I have a feeling I will be glad to have this photo in a few months, as reference that I didn't have a double chin my whole pregnancy. At least not yet at 6 weeks. =)
My calendar is all painted and in my gallery here at SIStv if you want to click through all the pages. It was inspired by my talented artist friend, Sarah Bowen. You can see her awesome calendar here. As well as see that I have some techniques to learn with my watercolors- at least my calendar is finished! =)
I took Wyndham to one hour of her physical therapy session today. She is still so weak and tired, but we need to build her muscle strength up and see how much she can tolerate. Apparantly she cannot tolerate that much. She came home, pointed to her room and signed 'sleep'. I let her lay down for about 45 minutes and then got her up just long enough to eat a few bites of lunch. She was very disinterested...and wanted to go back to bed. She ended up taking a 3 1/2 hour nap.
When she woke she looked much better, and proceeded to eat 2 freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. That's about how things have been going for her for the past 4-5 days. She has little spurts of energy and eats alright every now and then. But she is definitely not up for her routine schedule or regular school days. We still appreciate your prayers for her recovery. And we are thrilled to see a few more smiles from her each day. I will make sure to catch some on my camera and update some pictures here soon.
Chip is supposed to be taking some pictures of Brock at lacrosse right now. He is just starting up again. I am happy that we can squeeze a few 'extra curricular' activities into our week. Even if we're not all operating at full-strength. We're getting there...and it feels good.

Dear Nitty Gritty,
I stalk your blog - like on a daily basis...and I get a lot of inspiration from you (did I say daily?) I wanted to do something for you - I just started making headers and I want to make one for you (fo free). They are kind of funky and fun - kind of like you! :) I found a background that I would love to use. Email me if you are interested! ksmccallaghan@hotmail.com

Prayings continue for your sweet Wyndam. You will just have to set up the camera and put it on timer to make up for missing out on family shots. I need to do the same...we are overdo for a good family shot.
Blessings,
Holly
PS. Oh...I almost forgot...yes it is documented only one chin. :)

Ha! the chin thing is so true...and I dreaded that middle time, the not quite looking pregnant time, when I felt the need to tell everyone I was pregnant, not fat...So glad to hear Wyndham keeps taking baby steps.

Oh my goodness! I'm so excited for you to be pregnant! :) That's wonderful news. I'm pregnant too and expecting in early July, so I guess we're pregnant together then! I'll pray for you and your sweet baby to be safe & healthy. What a miracle!!! I haven't read your blog in several weeks, so I just did some catching up...so sorry that your dear Wyndham is having such a hard time. I will be praying for God to fully restore her. I hope that you are having a good day. Blessings to you and your family...

By the way...I LOVE your playlist! Those are all some of my favorite songs. I have it playing right now in another window so that I can listen. What a fun idea! I should see about adding that to my blog.
