Nothing short of a miracle!

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.
Job 9:10

GOD once again showed us his power tonight!

Addie can now "come to sit"! I just told Addie's PT on Tuesday that I didn't understand why it was so difficult for her and I told Dr. Dudgeon just yesterday that she couldn't do it! My precious, sweet baby is proving us wrong!

Julien and I had Addie on a blanket in the living room tonight, making her work hard on rolling over and trying to sit up. Julien and I gathered her favorite toys next to us and I sat Max in my lap (as extra incentive) and we kept encouraging Addie and turning her to her side and helping her push up on her arm. I think she finally just couldn't take it anymore and decided to show us that she could do it after all! I was so shocked by what I saw, that I made her lay back down and do it again...and she did! It isn't easy for her, but she's doing it! Hopefully, in another few days she will be a pro! This has been such a source of frustration for her and I am so glad that she finally figured it out!

All the glory to God! Please continue to pray! Didn't Dr. Dudgeon say just yesterday that Addie's condition and delays were the most profound he has ever seen? Can't you see how our prayers are making the difference? Please say a prayer and thank God for this miracle that he has shown to our family!

Like I told you last night sweet girl; we are very proud of you. Yes I know your name is Addie but I love calling you sweet girl. I knew you would show everyone what you are truly capable of. I love you.

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26 ESV
And only through God are all things possible, even miracles. Way to go Addie!! She is such a precious adorable baby girl and how anyone could look at her and not love her, I do not know. I will continue to pray for her and for all of you as well. Jennifer, God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave her to you and Chris and Julien to take care of. He knew you would love her like no one else could. And I heard the man say how beautiful she was at lunch on your shopping day (at Full Moon BBQ, before Christmas) and I have to agree. Keep the faith and stay encouraged and continue to encourage Addie as well!!!
