2 Years ago Today

2 Years ago today we welcomed our little miracle into this world. It is still a difficult day to reflect upon but the outcome continues to amaze us every day. I am truly thankful for modern medicine, my heavenly father and the incredible miracle he has given us to raise. She entered the world looking like this...weighing 2.2lbs and fighting with all her might and now today...
Celebrated her 2nd Birthday looking like this!!!! (full of personality) She has already had an incredible journey and we know she has a special mission here on earth. She has already touched our lives more than we can imagine. We love our Little Lexi!!!We wanted to do something special for Lexi and as you know from a previous post this kid is obsessed with the pool and now apparently shower ("pooo or wa wa"). We ventured to a local YMCA that actually had open swim hours today so Lexi could finally get some more time in the pool and of course Ky was all on board with this idea as well. We had a good time but the water was colder than we were hoping and Lexi began to Shiver and tell us she was "cooo" quicker than we were hoping but as you can see the girls found probably just as much excitement from their own individual warm showers that lasted for quite awhile. After about 10 min. I asked Ky if she was ready to turn it off and she replied, "No, not yet" and continued singing away and soaking up the warmth. These small little moments mean the world and we had a great time just being a family. Oh, how I wish they wouldn't grow up so fast!

I can't believe it has been two years. She is such a beautiful little girl. You and Skylar are amazing parents, and she is so lucky to be apart of your family.

I remember when Ted announced at my wedding luncheon that you had, had her. He was very concerned that she would not make it, but look at her today, you would never know. She is so cute and I love her shoes.

We (Kathy, Mom, Aunt Terry, Annie) are gathered around the computer staring at your darling little miracle girl reviewing your special story. I can't believe how much you have gone through. Such cute pictures that you got. I love seeing Lexi's personality in her smile and poses.

How amazing!!!!! We sure love Lexi and wish that we lived closer. You have some great pictures of your girls! Move to AZ and you won't have to worry about the water being too cold!!!! It is already in the 80's here.

I'm so glad you two made it through that hard time. She's absolutely darling!

P.S. I must have forgotten that Laura was pregnant because I just looked at her blog and she has a child! So fun. What's her new last name? My sister in law is marrying a guy from Rupert.
