I've finally gotten settled back home from our trip to TN and thought I'd update real quick before our busy week ahead. I got quite a few "complaints" while I was home that I don't update often enough - so I'll try and post more often... :)

Eden has been doing great. She has started physical therapy and feeding therapy. We love both of the therapists which is great. During her first PT session, Eden reached out for a toy!!!!!! I cried..... And then all week while we were in TN she was very interested in reaching for toy, braclets, THE BOTTLE! - anything! It brings joy to my heart to see her do things like this. I never realized how excited I would get over these sweet milestones. Eden seemed to have wonderful trip - this trip seemed much easier for her and she seemed to be much more relaxed. I was so glad to get to see everyone we did... we packed alot into just a few short days, but all was well worth it.

We hung out with Aunt Jessica on Wednesday...



On Thrusday, we got to see Alison and her boys Owen and Issac



and then off to see Kristen (with Miley) and Marcie (with Hudson)...



Next was Friday at the Carrolls to see the WHOLE fam...









and went to Ben and Brittany's wedding...



Saturday Grandma and Papa (Eden's great-grandparents) came by... as well as Aunt Linda and Uncle Wayne









And then of course - Gigi and ?? (I still dont think dad has decided on a name)





Please pray for Eden the next few weeks as you think of her. On Thursday this week (6/5), she is having surgery on her digestive tract to correct a birth defect. This has been making her very constipated and uncomfortable. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors as they perform her surgery and also for her healing, that it would be smooth as as comfortable as possible. Please also pray that Josh and I would be able to trust the Lord with our little one, yet again - knowing that His plan is greater than ours. Next Tuesday, Eden will be having a swallow study done as well to look at her upper digestive tract. We are hoping that this will shed some light on why she is not feeding so well. This has become a huge source of frustration for both Josh and I (getting her to eat that is). So please pray that she will begin to eat well and continue to grow. Then...... on Friday next week (6/13) she will be having tubes placed in her ears. The hopes with this is to drain any fluid that may be behind her ears causing her hearing loss. She will also have a hearing test done while she is under anesthesia. We will know then what degree (if any) of hearing loss she has.

As you can see, we've got a busy few days ahead of us. We will keep you posted on how Eden is doing.
