I know it's been awhile but I must say other things have come up :)

Here's a brief rundown of our family...

-Girls are doing AWESOME! We are keeping our discipline books on hand :)

-We have changed our nutrition BIG TIME. We have cut out most gluten, processed food, etc. We aren't weird just feeling good!!

-J and I celebrated 5 years of marriage in December :)

-We are having a new sweet baby in June of 2011!

So many WONDERFUL things have happened in our lives since my last post. The Lord has walked us through a valley and back again. We couldn't be more grateful for this valley. Our hearts have turned, softened and been humbled toward His glory and away from our humanity.

Miss you girls :)

Sweet thing.

I can tell you that our God made Himself known this morning. We saw His grace all around us from the moment we woke up. Thank you ladies for holding us up today.

We had a really positive appt. I have been super impressed with this Dr and his office staff. They are incredibly knowledgeable, professional yet super friendly and warm. They are careful and gentle with their words knowing that most parents that see them are possibly at their breaking point. I very much appreciate that.

Dr. M's helper did all 2.5 hours of intake both with us and KG. She was kind and listened intently while taking vigorous notes. She played with KG alot doing really random tasks that made no sense to me but gave her alot of insight into our sweet one.

I asked a million questions and made a million comments during the evaluation. She always nodded, smiled and wrote a note while saying,"Dr. M will be able to give you an answer to that."

KG was herself to a t. Always a good thing. They really got to see her as she is for the most part. She fell asleep on the way home.

Dr. M came at the end just to chat for a minute. He gave a quick look at the eval and played with KG. Then, he gave us a super quick thought on what he thought she definitely didn't have and a possibility that she does.

My heart is torn at the moment between whether today was a blessing or not. Sometimes ignorance is bliss yet knowledge is power. I sound like a commercial or something weird, don't I?

Pray for us to not freak out during this week before we know more concrete information. Even then. We are in need of discernment as we take a step toward equipping our little one to do whatever the Lord has for her.

Sorry to be so vague. We have our next appt with him on Tuesday at 3pm-5pm to discuss everything that he sees and figure out a game plan. He will review all of our past testing, present testing, hearing tests, etc. Let's just call him the "puzzle man".

Thank you again sweet friends! I treasure you thoughts, wisdom and prayer...

I'll leave you with this sweet picture of me and KG.

Hello again

It has been awhile, huh?

I cannot seem to find time during the day to blog with my new little monkeys roaming around the house. You understand right?

In order to avoid blog vomiting on all of you guys, I am going to simply state a few things...

-Would you girls pray for us in the am at 10? We have a very important appt for KG with a developmental pediatric doctor to hopefully shed some light on some of our struggles these days.

My physical is anxious and weary but my spirit is at peace with whatever comes of tomorrow.

Thank you ladies in advance.

Lord, Let us not grow weary while doing good for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart...Galatians 6:9

A new addition

Mamaw thinks we are too skinny around the Billups home. I think that's why she sent me a gift.
I think these shall be the first product of her goodness.
