“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13. This is our family motto!
Remi is a couple of weeks shy of being 8 months. Last week she weighed in at 16lbs 7oz and 27 1/2 in long. She has came a long way from her birth weight of 5lbs 6oz and her length of 18 3/4in long. I see Remi now and I am in awe of how much she has grown and how much she does. I cry at every new skill she learns because I was told she would be SO behind from typical kids her age. Being told that, I set my mind on helping her succeed those milestones. I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter for her determination and desire to learn. So far, she is reaching her milestones within the typical range, showing off her determination and making sure her doctors are in awe at her strength.
Being different is beautiful and something people fear but I’m determined to be different. To be able to see what others don’t because of fearing what others think or their reactions. To me, the odd opens up my curiosity and I will search until I figure it out. Remi is different and that’s what makes her perfect for me and my life. She makes everyday beautiful and shows me that not everything that we’re told about how our lives will be, is true. She brings surprises to my life and those are the moments that you will see tears in my eyes.
My favorite part of life with her is waking up to her, just staring at me. Waiting for me to open my eyes and when I do, she smiles. I could honestly say, she has done the impossible by making me a morning person because all I can do is smile ear to ear and give her tons of kisses.
I am absolutely proud to be her mother!
