Madison's Birthday:

June 8, 2010

From the Word:

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." Jeremiah 1:5

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:13-14

God is Good!

Today was another visit to Vanderbilt to check on Miss Madison's progress. We were beyond thrilled with the news we received today! Madison has almost doubled her weight in 4 weeks and she's currently weighing in at 3 lbs. 2 oz. This was awesome news since drs. have repeatedly expressed
concern over her small weight. There appears to be no more additional brain ventricle dilation which is an answered prayer. We prayed God would just stop the swelling and HE did. Another good piece of news to report- Madison's birthday has been scheduled for June 8th! This is the date barring any further complications or negative changes with her before then. We got to see some good ultrasound views of everything but her face- she's a little stinker! We think she's hiding it because Mommy and Daddy won't be able to stand how beautiful she is if we saw her now. Madison has big, narrow feet (those she gets from Daddy) and a head full of hair. You can see in the picture it looks like blades of grass on the back of her head. We're starting to believe that old wives tale about indigestion and hair growth is true. The top of her (not pictured) is full of hair that stood up in a mow hawk. Looks like Mommy will have to tame that mane with some cute bows and headbands. We are overjoyed with the good report today from Vanderbilt. We know God is going to continue to do amazing things through our little girl. We praise God for her life and for giving her to us! God is so good!
