The BEST Birthday Gift EVER!

To the faithful to keep up on this blog... THANK YOU!

It's hard to believe that Sunday, October 26th is Lilee's 1st birthday! As you know, Lilee had a cardiologist appointment this month. It's been 3 months since her last heart ultrasound, so we were excited to hear more good news this time. Well, we got it!

We like to think that in honor of her birthday, we received the news that THERE IS NO CHANGE in Lilee's valve graft, which means we don't have to go back for another 4 months! Hallelujah! It's strange to think back on all that we've gone through with her heart, know God's provision, see His faithfulness first hand, experience His healing power in our daughter and STILL be "nervous" about these check ups. I know it must be my flesh that's fearing, but it's frustrating to know that that all we've learned can be so easily forgotten.

As for what Lilee is up to, she keeps us VERY busy. While she's not walking yet, she flies around the house on her hands and knees, pulling up on anything she can. She speaks her own language, sings, and talks on the TV remote like a phone. :o) I think the best part is to see her so excited over discovering she is able to do things on her own, whether it's sitting her her own fluffy chair, or helping me put socks in the dryer. She's so proud of herself.

We continue to be so grateful for the friendships we have in you! We'll post soon with more pictures and exciting news as we enter the holidays!

We love you,

The Finches

Yea, we are so happy to hear the good news. Yes, children love to learn how to be independent. Shelby is loving the fact that she can have her bedroom door closed when she is playing (age 4 next month). I love the fact that they love to help and feel it is a big accomplishment when they are able to help. Enjoy your time while she is still little. Love you guys. Glad to hear everything is good.
