Today is Sierra's 1st birthday. We went to the chiropractor today and Sierra did really well. They were so sweet and had a piece of cheesecake for her. She had a few bites of it and really liked it. :) We really didn't celebrate today. We are going to celebrate on Sunday. We'll have a little "Praise Party" for her. (If anyone wants to come, let me know!)

It is hard to believe that a year has gone by, but on the other hand, it seems like the day she was born was so long ago. I had been dreading her first birthday for a long time, because of the nightmare of memories that it holds. However, today was good. (Two days ago,the anniversary of the day that I went into labor, was rough emotionally.) Today I was just bursting with indescribable joy and so thankful for the precious blessing that God has allowed us to have!

Here is a picture from today.

Padre Island

When we went to visit my grandmother we decided to go to South Padre Island since we were already at the tip of Texas. It was Sierra's first time to go to the beach and Jason's first time on a Texas beach (he is used to Florida and California). We really enjoyed it and are talking about going more often.

Please Pray for Sierra's Great Grandmother

Please pray for my grandmother (Sierra's great grandmother). She is going to be having triple bypass surgery starting at 7:30 am (Sept. 4) because she has 80% blockage. It should last 4-5 hours. We made a quick weekend trip to see her.
