Last year at 7.27am EDT our beautiful little Ms Muffin came to this world! We had known it would be a difficult year ahead of us, but we've come to a better place that we could have imagined!

Happy Birthday Abigail!!!!! We love you so much there are no words in any language to describe it!!!

3 Days To The Turn

Yes, only 3 days left and our little girl turns 1!!!! I can't believe it has already been a year! And what a year!!! Unbelievably difficult, challenging and stretching us in every possible way, but being where we are today I would not change it for anything else!!!

I have a wonderful wife, dream-daughter, my parents are fine and finally made it here to NC!

Next Monday we are going with Abi for her 1 year old checkup and the following week to her cardiologist appointment. First doctor visits in 3 months! We will sure keep you updated!

2 steps ahead..

11:00 am today - high time for a nap for Abi. Abi is playing with her baskets, crawling rounds, climbing on mommy and daddy, pulling up on everything that is at least 1 inch high... All in attempt to prolong the fun.
She's walking when you hold her hands, but this morning Abi just let my fingers and took off and took 2 steps on her own!

Amazing how fast she's growing; how much she understands and communicates. She mastered the sign word for milk, and now she shows when she's hungry and when she's 'done' eating or playing or anything she doesn't want to do anymore! How awesome is that?
Abi is a pretty awesome little girl.
We are so proud of you Honey!!

Learning New Things

Abi is doing wonderful and keeps on surprising us with new tricks almost every day.

Last week she started climbing the stairs! Yes! Climbing the stairs! It's a bit scary but at the same time it's so wonderful to see the joy and fascination with the new challenge in her eyes when she looks up the stairs just right before she starts her way up ;-)

The following short movie shows the new skill Abi picked up from her grandma (via SKYPE) after i left them without paying much attention for 3 minutes ;-)

And now it's time to go back to bed. After all it's 3.30am.
