I know some people may find this hard to believe, but Hope had her first 'real' bath today. We have been using these disposable washcloths on her since she came home from the hospital...for a couple reasons. First is because they told us not to submerse her in water until six weeks after surgery. That would have been in November, but we didn't have a baby bathtub. We must have gotten rid of the boys because I couldn't find one anywhere. The second reason is because the boys hate baths and have since they were born...so we weren't really looking forward to giving Hope a bath. We thought she would spend the whole time crying and being upset. Alas...we tried it and she loved it! She is the only one of my kids that loves a bath. She could have stayed in there all day. That has to be something she inherited from me...I could spend hours laying around in the bath.

Can I count the times I've watched you smile and wondered what will be? Can I think of each and every trial we've endured patiently? So very many sleepless nights, the monitors watched with care, blood pressure low, heart rate too high, knees bent down in prayer. I know Lord you are near to me, this journey's in your hands, But sometimes Lord it is so hard to meet this life's demands. I trust you God, I really do but fear creeps deep inside, sometimes I just don't understand, no matter how I try. But Jesus you are with me, and hand in hand we'll cope, for I know that you will lead us, through this heart journey of hope.
