Finally FIVE and getting used to this stuff!


This post Should have been posted 2 months ago....wrote it...just never posted it! 



You have got to be kidding me....look at all that hair! 


Remember her birthday last year?




Doesnt even look like her!  Just a few days before this her eyes were basically swollen shut!  This is on the uphill!




This year couldnt have been more different!  Faye wanted to go swimming! 



Then we came home opened some presents!



And ate some ice cream cake! Fayes request!



This girl is amazing!  She is doing so well!  We feel very grateful.  Last year on her birthday we were willing to do whatever for her, because we didnt know how the next year was going to go!  I remember really having those thoughts, what if she doesnt make it to her next birthday?  But the reality of it, is that some kids wont make it to their 5th birthday!  We couldnt feel more blessed, and grateful for this beautiful girl!

Your posts are balm for my soul. I'm not exaggerating. I love the pic of her sitting by her presents. She looks darling. I love her purple bday crown. Did you make that? And I love her green shirt white shorts outfit. She is the stinkin cutest girl on the planet. I remember how scared and desperate I felt last year looking at those pictures. I thank Heavenly Father all the time for seeing Faye through that time and allowing her to get to where she is today- so happy and healthy! She brings so many people such joy, even just by seeing her amazing adorableness in these pictures. LOVE YOU FOREVER FAYE!!

I am so glad that sweet Faye is doing so well! I remember her as a baby, back in Logan we were in the same ward, and often found ourselves in the mothers lounge with our babies together. We even blessed these babies on the same day!! I have been following your blog, and was heartbroken by what your family was going through, and I am truly inspired by you and your amazing family. Happy birthday Faye!!! :)
