OLW BLog challenge

The word this week was Believe - and it inspired me to scrap this not so great picture of Baylee. Thats why I love these challenges - It pushes me to scrap things i normally wouldn't! Used some of the October Kit from the Shaker Box . Thanks for looking!

Journaling: This isn't the best picture in the world - but it is one those memories tht i've chosen to block out , and if i don't document it - thne i will never remember the pain i felt watching my baby girl go through this. SHe was born 5 weeks early - weighing a healthy 6lbs 6oz, but had a hole in her heart that was causing blood to get into her lungs. The went in and out a twice within the first 2 days, she was on oxygen and had a pic line in her belly and IV's running through wherever they could poke her, it was hard to watch. In the back of my mind wondering if she would get better, I felt peace. I had watched Ethan go through the same thing for 8 weeks suffering from CF - I bleieved in my heart she would get better. AFter 4 weeks of tests and learning to eat and gaining weight - I brought my baby girl home. 7/06

Brenda, this page is so beautiful. I'm sure these moments are a little hard to scrap at times too. Honestly, I don't know how you lived through seeing your sweet Baylee AND Ethan go through all this stuff. You are seriously one tough cookie.

Thanks for the pancrecarb info. I'm a loser for not calling you. The crap hit the fan at work last week. I'll try to get my act together & call you soon. XOXO.
