Izzy B.

Ok, so I still haven't taken the 9 month picture. It'll happen one day this week... or month;) . Here are some pics of Iz. There's not a wide variety, but I love to take pics of kids in the same setting and just see all their different facial expressions.
Notice for most of these she's trapped in her high chair or someone's arms. Otherwise I usually only get a body part as she is ON THE MOVE!

Go Dawgs!! (ok, so she's so not in GA colors, but I had to get it in somewhere since THEY BEAT FL THIS WEEKEND!

Today is her 9 month checkup. My only question is "HOW CAN I GET HER TO SLEEP ALL NIGHT?" :) She's doing great developmentally! Catie's 9 month visit was her last well baby visit. We started the process at this visit that eventually led us to diagnosis 3 months later. Izzy's doing so well though, there really aren't any concerns (knock on wood). She's said DaDa, MaMa, Bye Bye, and Baby all intentionally. She doesn't use them all regularly, but when she wants to she does. Every time she sees her Jingle Babies books, she starts saying baby. She's proud too -- knows she's doing something special! She's pulling up, learning to use her push toy, and walking holding on to our hands. So basically -- we're having fun and constantly in chase mode!!! It is a beautiful thing!!

Off to get some things done before we head to town. Hope your day is good!

I have followed your story from a friend of mine whose daughter also has cancer - you truly inspire me to be a better mom and person in general. Catie and Izzy are both adorable. Sending prayers and good wishes your way!!

Thanks for the Izzy pictures. I love the one with her little teeth poking out in the first one!

She does look like Catie, especially in the pictures where you think she doesn't! I also think she kind of looks like Kendrie in a few of them.

I want to know what you doctor said about her sleeping all night. I am still battling too!

Beautiful Jenny--- She's absolutely beautiful.... As far as sleeping, well, we are a lot like you guys, "crying it out" just never worked for us :) :) :). So, the only advice I can give there is to appreciate that bonding time that you're making with Sweet Izzy in the wee hours of the morning, and remember that is allowing you to make forever memories with her. Ahh, there's nothing like the snuggle of a sweet, sleepy baby.

I will be praying that the Holy Spirit touch the hearts of the woman that you speak to and that your story inspires them to be closer to the Lord and appreciate their families more. I know that hearing it has certainly made an eternal impact on me.
