my myla is nine years old…

how does one express love with words…it can never be explained well enough.

when this little girl was 4 weeks old she had a double skull fracture.
when we arrived by ambulance to the emergency room, the neuro-surgeon was forthright in telling us she would not make it.

she did make it.

she was born a fighter.
go getter.
she’s very tough on herself.
if she doesn’t do it better than everyone else,
she struggles.

to this day, I cry when I hear sirens.
my emotions can’t handle it, ever since I rode in an ambulance with her, begging God to help her.
The promises and one-on-one deals you start making with Him, if He can do something amazing for me, I can make a trade.
I’m not so sure I’ve held up on my end of the deal, but he has more than blessed me from His side.
I cannot imagine life without my Myla moosey.
We had grand plans for her birthday.
We always have her birthday party early in December so more of her friends can attend before they leave for the holidays. Then ON her birthday, we also have an amazing family day.
She started her day tubing at soldier hollow then begged to spend the entire day playing at the Blands. She loves the Bland family. In fact, it was Scotty who gave her a blessing at the hospital {in the middle of the night} when she was so tiny and needed some extra pull to keep her here with her family.

She came home at about 10pm tonight from the Bland home, with Cason and Brevin in tow and opened her family presents…

All science kits! She loves these kind of things, and we love everything about her…happy 9 years moosey.
