Let the Festivities Begin!

Nola's first "friends" party will be Sunday and I cannot wait! I know I'm crazy for paying the price, but Nola loves Pump-It-Up! Yes, she has to take off her implants, but she doesn't care! She will climb up the slide and slide down thousands of times! I cannot wait to take pictures of her and all her friends. They are mostly her school mates at Memphis Oral School with a few cousins and others thrown into the mix. This will be a time of celebrating- Nola is turning 3 and we only see a great things coming for our little miracle!



We cannot believe our sweet little baby will be 3 years old in just a short while! Where has the time gone? We have been through quite a lot in these short three years, but look where we are! Nola is a talking machine and we could not be happier! I think back to where we were this time in 2007- scared to death! Fearful of the unknown. Now I feel as if we have weathered all the large storms; there may be a few rainy days, but we can handle it! Nola is such a fighter and was given the perfect namesake.

Happy Third Birthday to our walking, talking miracle!

Since many of you have been on this journey with us or keep up via the blog, you know how important LeBonheur has been in our lives - 5 surgeries, 3 ER trips, and countless appointments.
