Everleigh is 6 Months

My sweet girl turned 6 months a few weeks ago. I know I'm kinda late on making this post, but I've been pretty busy these days. From visiting different specialists and therapists each week to going in for a 24 hour EEG. Life is pretty busy. To be honest, some days are pretty hard on me emotionally, not knowing what the future will hold for my baby girl. I find myself crying more often than not. But those days are becoming less than the GOOD days; especially when I see Everleigh's smile. In this past month, Everleigh has gotten better with tummy time and although she is not yet able to do them without assistance, she has made great progress and I know she will get there soon. We tried feeding her prune purée once because at her 6 month check-up, her doctor had recommended we try feeding her solids. As her mama I just didn't think she was quite ready since she is still unable to hold up her head on her own. After mentioning to our Physical Therapist about her introduction to simple foods, she also agreed that we can hold off for the same reason so we have stopped for the moment and we'll try again in the soon future. Everleigh started her physical and speech therapy a couple of weeks ago and I think it went fairly well. She typically doesn't like strangers but her two wonderful therapists was able to comfort and hold her for a good 45 minute. She even grabbed a toy with one of her hand for the first time. I was pretty emotional, my eyes filled with tears when I saw her do that. Who knew that something so simple can bring me so much joy. I'm learning through Everleigh to celebrate everything, all the small stuff. Isn't that what life should be about? I'm starting to think so. I'm so thankful for her and what she is teaching me everyday. The most important thing she has taught me most thus far is that our breathe is not our own and our lives does not belong to us but to Him who created us. Our lifetime is short and minuscule when compared to eternity with God. So whatever we are given in this life we just have to do the best we can with it to honor God until we return home to be with Him in heaven. The hardships we are given are here to draw us closer to God and my understanding now is that our purpose to be here is to get to know our Creator more deeply. So my hope is that Everleigh can also teach you that today.
