Prayers Please! UPDATED

Would you please pray for my little brother, Joe? He suffered some serious nerve damage in a car accident last summer and is going to UC San Francisco tomorrow for a Dr's appointment...we are praying the surgeons there will be able to help him get back to normal. It is just heartbreaking to see him miss out on so much being injured these past ten months.
Thanks bloggy friends!
I'll leave you with some ridiculous cuteness
Yep, that's my girl! :)))))
UPDATE: the appointment ended up being a dead ruled out one thing and left the door open for a bunch of other possibilities, so hopefully a new Dr will be able to shed some light on the situation soon :-/

Two Months!

Faith Olivia, you are two months old today!

I know, mommy and daddy can hardly believe it either!

You weigh 10 lbs, 6 oz - more than twice what you weighed when we left the hospital - and are 21.5 inches long...five inches longer than when you were born! You are now in 0-3 months clothing and will be in size 1 diapers by the end of this week. We cannot believe how big you are getting! You are developing the cutest constantly want to move and wiggle and you never want to will hit yourself in the face, pull mommy's hair, and grunt like crazy to try to stay awake. You want to sit up and hold your head up sooooo are getting pretty good at holding your head up for longer and longer on your own. You are just getting interested in your love to "talk" to the butterflies on your bouncer! You are the queen of losing socks...mommy can't keep socks on you for longer than five minutes at a time :-/ You finally got to go to church and BabiesRUs this month and you sure liked looking at everything and everyone. You are the light of our lives...thank-you sweet princess for the best two months of our lives!

Today I am feeling blessed...

blessed because I have a wonderful husband, a great job, and a beautiful home...

blessed because I serve a loving God who holds me in His hands...

blessed because I heard from CC today and that always brings a smile to my face...sometimes I feel like I got an adopted teenage sister or daughter out of this whole situation too...

most of all, blessed because I am mommy to the most amazing little girl in the world :)

Not sure about these guys...

Talking to my new friends

Ready for a nap!

Just a quick update to post pics of the final nursery and Faith's bathroom...enjoy!

 Crib and glider
 Close-up of the crib
 Cute mermaid bedding :)
 Love this's big enough that it will work on a toddler bed too!
Got these curtains for $10 at Target! They are a brown on brown stripe.
Armoire with mermaid and sea creature paintings I did.
 Refinished this used armoire from a scratched up pine to a shabby chic white with aqua trim
 and knobs from Anthropologie
 This shelf was my grandma' was an anniversary gift from my grandpa :) I did some mini paintings - the frog and princess - and my SIL helped me make the crown, jars of 'fairy dust' and framed prints.
Changing table/dresser...matches the armoire

 Faith's bathroom
 This was the inspiration for the room...I got this Paris print for $15 at Hobby Lobby!!!
 All these frames came from Hobby Lobby too!

 There is a crack on my bathroom mirror, so a mini sketch of the Eiffel Tower is glued to cover it ;)
Shelf above the toilet.

 Picture and tissue box from Hobby Lobby...I used ribbon to hang the pic so I didn't have to make more holes in my wall - ha!

 Plaque with scripture from Hobby Lobby.

 The shower curtain is from the Shabby Chic collection at Target...I just love the rhinestone hanging rings!

That's it for y'all are having a GREAT weekend!
