11 months has come and gone

It is so hard to believe that 11 months has come and gone, and my baby is on her way to being one year old.

Two seconds ago I got a call from my sister-in-law, Kara, who is about ready to have her baby (any day now!!) and hearing her talk about the baby boy that is about to be brought into this world, and to hear the excitement in her voice is just amazing! I remember the feeling Chad and I had before Charli was born. Not truly knowing how our life would change, yet knowing that it would never be the same. Needless to say, we had no idea what was to come! The anticipation of waiting to bring a new life into this world is priceless, and I believe there is nothing like it! Obviously, once they baby arrives the REAL miracles just begin...but nothing compares to the preparing for the baby!!!

Anyway - here are some new pictures of Charli! We are going to the Relay for Life tonight in Columbus, Charli will take part in the SURVIVORS lap. I am not sure how I feel about going, I think it will be very emotional, probably in a good way - but I am a bit scared either way. Then, at 10:00 our GREAT friend Linda is coming over to stay with Charli so Chad and I can take part in the lighting of the luminaries. I will take a lot of pictures, and try to take in all that is around us.

Also, I want to take a quick second to thank all of you from the BOTTOM of my heart for all the love and prayers you have sent out for our little girl. I know that modern medicine does wonders when it comes to cures and health, but I know that at the heart of everything there is God. Thank you for bringing Charli to the top of His list, He has taken amazing care of my baby...and for that I am forever thankful. I pray that God will bless all of you, the way he has blessed me.

Thank you for letting me be a part of Charli's life. Like I have said before, there is just something about her and your family that I relate to because of Zoe. I will continue to pray for Charli's fight!! Enjoy tonight...I did the relay last is an unbelievable event...many mixed emotions. It is amazing how many wonderful people are there to support the fight and raise money for a cure!! God Bless you all!
