Time seems to be flying by since our beautiful little girls have been home with us. We can't believe it has already been a month since the girls have both been home together. We just love having them home with us. They bring us so much joy and happiness. They both seem to be progressing nicely. I am amazed with their progression to this point. They both seem to control their heads much better. They both love their fingers. They suck on them like there is no tomorrow. They both seem to move their arms and legs really well, especially Haley who had the grade 4 head bleed. We know the girls have a lot of therapy (physical and occupational) ahead of them, but we are doing all we can to help the girls. We try to do daily exercises with them to help with their range of movement and to help strengthen their muscles. We do not know what lies ahead for our girls in regards to their physical and neurological challenges, but we do know we will except what ever it may be. The Lord has blessed us so very much. We have our two beautiful girls who mean the world to us. We know the Lord has watched over them and will continue to do so; For these are his daughters and we are accountable to him as to what we do with the responsibilities and privileges He has given to Thomas and I to raise these little girls. Both girls have their own unique personality, they are different from each other, but yet they are so alike in some ways. We are enjoying the journey as parents. We will continue to strive to do all we can to help our girls develop and grow. One thing they both will always know is who they are and where they came from. They will know that they are daughters of a loving Heavenly Father, who sent them to mortality to not only gain a body but to gain experience, knowledge, and testimonies of a living Heavenly Father and of his Son Jesus Christ. To whom we owe all for their matchless love to us and to our little Rachel and Haley.
Here are some pictures of my attempt at a photo shoot with both girls together dressed in pretty pink dresses. As you can see it didn't go well. Little Haley was upset. The individual pictures of the girls turned out better.
