"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. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

Hi everyone. It's Heather, Pete has been pretty busy lately with school and work and everything so I wanted to take a quick moment to update you on our precious little lady. After a not so good week with Abby and her nose splints, and 4 appointments to adjust her NAM to were she could tolerate it, she is now doing wonderful. I think we have all come to the conclusion that it was her actual new appliance, the part that looks like a retainer, that was causing her all the trouble. Now, she has the nose piece in and is doing so well, she is a real trooper. Our summer is sadly coming to an abrupt end, Colton started school on the 12th and I will be returning to work this Sunday. Three months sure flew by. Well that's all for now, just a quick update for everyone. I also just want to send out a big thanks to everyone who visits this site to check on our angel here on Earth. I am so grateful for every one's love, support and prayers, we are incredibly blessed and it simply leaves me speechless. I also want to thank Peter for being such a wonderful husband. He is truly the absolute best, and sorry ladies, he's all mine :) At the end of this post, the video is of Abby jabbering away, her new favorite activity.

This is my new favorite pic of Abby

Heather, she is looking so good. What a cutie. I am sorry you have had so much trouble with your new NAM. Adjustments are the pits! Glad to hear things are progressing nicely now. We keep you in mind and in thoughts all the time. Good luck going back to work...we are also in that transition. Not fun for anyone! Take care, and thanks for keeping us updated. Hugs to Abby!

What a cutie!!! I can't believe how big she has gotten so fast. It looks like the appliances are really working. The transformation already is amazing. Adalynn never had to wear anything, so it has been neat watching Abbie progress.

Best of luck as you return to work. I hope things slow down for all of you.

Abby sure is growing! She is a beauty.

I can't believe how advanced she is compared to my little boy! Wow. She's doing great... despite a face full of gear. And I know it's even harder for the parents to deal with and it sounds like you're doing a great job, keeping your spirits high about it.
