Time sure is flying by right now! Maddie is growing so fast, her first year nearing it's conclusion. Though I must say that I love each and every stage. Right now she is trying so hard to walk. I am really not ready for that!!! She is already into everything right now and I can't imagine how much worse it will be when she begins walking. Just today I she tore up a magazine, at some paper, and I found her trying to eat cat fur, dog food and a wad of my hair. Gross!!!!
Now for the prayer request: Maddie is still getting ear infections. This is her 7th one and the drops (prescribed post-op) are not getting rid of it. She is now on oral antibiotics which will total 80 days of antibiotics in the last 6 months. I called a pediatric allergist/immunologist and we are having her tested for both food and environmental allergies on Tuesday. Please pray that we can find a cause for her chronic infections. Something needs to give!! I feel horrible that she is on so many antibiotics and has a yeast rash from it. And she is miserable from the pain and discomfort. It breaks my mommy heart.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, some photos of Maddie Grace:
