First Taste of the Political World

Sierra got her first taste of politics on Saturday. She went with us to the Republican County Convention. Everyone there loved her. Unfortunately she will not be able to attend the state convention this year.

Here she is with her grandfather. He was so proud to have her there to show off to everyone. :-)

Nice picture of the two of us.

This is a really bad picture of Sierra with Senator Troy Fraser. The senator was in a hurry but was gracious enough to stop for a very quick photo.

Picture Time!

Here are some pictures of us from this weekend.

"Just to see you smile..."

There is a country song that says something like,"Just to see you smile, I'd do anything..." That is how I feel. I long so much to see Sierra smile. She has had such a rough life. It will be wonderful to see her smile and know that she is happy. The main reason she has not smile yet is because she cannot see and babies usually smile as a response to sight. Sierra looked adorable in her little Easter dress today. I will post some pictures later. (BTW this is Rosetta posting this. When I post from my phone it says I am Jason.)

Daddy is looking forward to seeing HBOT

Believe it or not, I have no idea what this treatment looks like. I've heard about it, but will get to see it for the first time on thursday. I'll post my comments on it then


Sierra is teething (Need I say more?). We have been getting to bed around midnight and she has been waking up around four every morning.

Testing 123

Six Months Old!

Today Sierra turned 6 months old!

Sierra had her 30th hyperbaric treatment. She has been doing very well and we have seen great improvements from the treatments. Last week she did something that really got us excited. She rolled over from her back unto her belly!

We made some new friends at the hyperbaric place. There is another family that is taking their baby to hyperbarics. She is 9 months old and has a lot of the same challenges that Sierra does. It was so good to visit with them!

Heart attack

This little girl wants to keep us on our knees! Up until last week she had always been sleeping on the bed with us at night. She doesn't move much so it hasn't been a problem. Since we started hyperbarics and started putting her on her belly on the floor more frequently, she has begun moving a lot more. She is doing very well at crawling (not what you typically think of as crawling...this is a crawl on her belly like an army crawl.) Last week while we were in San Antonio at the hotel I woke up during the night and reached next to me to feel for Sierra.......but she wasn't there! I figured that she had buried herself under the covers. I jumped out of bed and ran around to the other side tot turn on the light. When the light came on, I gasped at what I saw. Sierra was lying on the floor beside the bed. She had crawled right out of bed! There was less than a foot of space between the metal bed frame and the wooden nightstand. Somehow she managed to fall without hurting herself. She did not have any bumps or bruises. We stayed up the rest of the night watching her to make sure she didn't have a concussion, then in the morning a friend who is a family doctor graciously took a look at her. It was really a miracle that Sierra did not hurt herself. I say that she fell out of bed and right into the hands of God. Needless to say, she will not be sleeping on the bed anymore!

Yesterday we went to the Alamo. It was Lil' Bit's first time to visit the Alamo. That is where the pictures were taken.

New Blog

Sierra's other blog is for updates on how she is doing and contains facts. (We are grateful that her uncle has been keeping up with it!) This blog is not going to replace the other one it is just going to be more of a day to day type blog about Sierra and her family. It will contain thoughts and emotion in addition to the facts.
