Happy Birthday Quinn!
Wow! I absolutely cannot believe that my baby has turned one! Her birthday was Saturday and we had a big party with all of her granparents and great grandparents and even one great-great grandma! She got tons of presents (not from us!! but from her grandparents) like Santa Clause doesn't need to come in a month!! She had her very own cake and instead of digging in with her cute little hands, she decided to go face first! It was so funny. The party was a lot of fun and she was so cute while opening her presents she would let out this squeal that basically killed all of our ear drums! (Bunco girls....you know where she gets that!)
Let me tell you a little bit about what is going on with my little girl. She has got Amblyopia in her eye and she is wearing a patch right now to try and make the bad eye stronger. But someime in the next month she will have a surgery where they go in and strengthen the muscles in the eye. Now it could be fixed in one surgery but it could also take up to three. The doctor said that by the time she is a teenager she will have straight eyes and good vision, but it is going to take 10 years to get it that way! She also was born with a cleft gum. Where her gum on the top didn't grow all the way together because of her frenulum. So next Tuesday we take her to get the surgery on it. So please keep her in your prayers for the next little while! The poor little thing. I feel so bad for her and all that she is going through right now. But I am so thankful that these are the only problems she has, because taking her to Primary Childrens, I saw a lot of little kids a lot worse off than her. I can't even say how thankful I am for both of my kids and that they are healthy, and that what is wrong is completely fixable. I am so glad to have both of these cute little girls. I can't even tell you how much I love being a mom and love being able to stay home with them. They are the light of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
I had to put this pic on here even though you can't see her beautiful eyes that well. But you can tell how happy she is! She is always grinning like that. What a happy baby!
Sitting up in her chair "posing" for our little photo shoot!
Like I said...she dug in with her face!! It was hilarious. And surprisingly enough she was very clean when she got done. Just some on one hand and her face!!
All of our family at the party! I was excited that everyone came. And that with all the craziness that has gone on in my family that there wasn't a fight. Because My mom and Michelle were both there, My Davis Grandparents and my Dad, and Scott was there too. But it was a lot of fun and everyone got a long!
