One year ago today Katelyn was given her precious gift. We are so proud of our little fighter, and so thankful she was given her second chance.
We had a little celebration for her today, complete with a heart shaped cake, balloons and a princess tiara!
She has come so far in the last year and she’s doing really well. She’s walking all over the place and has even started running. She says several words, the newest being “COOKIE!!!” (haha).
Recently she’s had some issues with her already low immune system that has landed her in the doctor’s office more often than we care for, but she doesn’t let it keep her down.
As always we appreciate your prayers that she continues to thrive, and these issues with her immune system are just a tiny bump in the road.
Here’s a few pictures from her celebration today.
Her cake, that she grabbed a bit off the side when I wasn’t expecting it! Little stinker.
These are her special gifts, we bought her a charm bracelet with a heart charm, she got an engraved locket from Momay, Papa, Uncle Scott and Uncle Craig, a bracelet from Grandpa, pretty new clothes from Grammy and (you can see two pictures above) her quilt in the background is from a group of mommy’s friends
The light blue candle we lit today for her angel.
We did a balloon release to honor her donor.
What a difference a year makes!!
And Braden got some special gifts too for being the Best Big Brother 🙂
