McKenzie Turns 1

It's someone's 1st Birthday. Yep, can you believe it? A whole year has passed! She wasn't supposed to be here and we are enjoying EVERY SINGLE MOMENT! She is a true blessing.

Physically she is doing awesome! She has had a lot of surgeries this year and her attitude has always remained amazing. She smiles and giggles after her treatments. Even when she must be in pain, she is happy. She is even starting to speak, which is hard when you don't have a pallet. She goes in for her pallet surgery on November 11th. Please be praying because there is swine flu everywhere at the hospital she is going too, it's so bad that they may cancel the surgery. She truly is trying to speak though so we need to get it done so speaking with be easier for her. Her first words were mama and dada and her knew word "I love you". Shocking, and I didn't believe it, but I spent all evening on Friday with her and it's true! You can tell she is told that constantly. If you look at her and say "I love you". She looks right back and says "La Lu". So cute!!!
Thank you guys for your prayers and support this past year. We went through so much in such a short amount of time. You guys helped me so much and I appreciate it!

  1. Are you serious??!! She's talking! Oh, I want to hear!

    I hardly know her and I love her and I'm so happy that she's doing well. I will never quit believing that she was born into the most amazing family. Your last email to me on the subject was proof; when I told you I thought she was so blessed to be in a family so full of love, you responded,"We're the ones who are blessed."

    See what I mean?

  2. Thanks Reese!! I actually did an audio of her voice a few weeks ago and tried to email it to you, but it didn't work. I will try again :)

  3. Today is the day of the surgery. I'm pausing to pray. Thank you for sharing this precious girl with us. I can only imagine how cute her "I love you" is. She touches my heart.

  4. Tiffany, thanks so much for your prayers! Her surgery went very well and she will be coming home today, and I will keep you updated.

  5. When everything is coming your way, you are in the wrong lane.............................................
