Itches and wishes

Pin It

 We have had a terrible week of the worst case of hives I have ever seen. Poor Ivy, this girl just can't catch a break!!! She had an allergic reaction to her antibiotics and was absolutely covered in the most itchy uncomfortable outbreak beginning Valentines Day. Sweet girl was in pain and so itchy. Today is day 5 and I feel like we have turned a corner. She is still covered, but the swelling is down and the itching is less. Saturday morning her hands and feet were so grossly swollen that she could not walk or use her hands. Anyway, I won't amuse you with all the photos I took of the different stages of this rash... it really was interesting to see the progression. I will post happy photos leading up to the day the outbreak occurred instead :)

                       Ready for school

No luck getting a shot of them both looking at the camera. You have no idea what a dream come true it is for me to see my little Ivy Joy climbing on this gate. Such a huge milestones happening for this sweet girl! And blessed with the sweetest, most patient big sister on the planet. Lexi is honestly the sweetest little girl.

Maybe I should try and photoshop both the above pictures together so that both littles looking at the camera?

Last week there was a surprise party for Ivy at Red Robin to reveal to her that her wish to see Rapunzel, Anna, and Elsa would be granted.

She swore it was her Birthday!

This is Monica, her wish grantor. Ivy loves her. She is such a little lover girl! 

When the staff at Red Robin heard that the party was for Ivy (they know of her) They all joined in with make a wish and showered her with gifts. Again, Ivy turned to me and said... See! Its my Happy Birthday!!!

Our crew all sporting Make A Wish Bracelets.

 Red Robin Staff wanted a photo with the Empress

 Our Wish volunteers. Monica and her husband Bryan. Bryan was a wish kid as a teen. He is a cancer survivor. We love these two. Sweetest most compassionate couple. Blessed!

It was an awesome night for Ivy. She knew every second of it was about her. We are now on the countdown to DisneyWorld. 

When they told Ivy about her wish, and where she was going, she asked if there would be good food! Go figure!! Little foodie! 
                     Florida, here we come!

2 beautiful years

Pin It                       2 years of Ivy Joy

                         2 years of forever. 

2 years of squishy kisses and indescribable love, joy, and beauty.

Happy Forever Family Day sweet love! 

I will never forget the very first time I saw you eye to eye. 

It was like I had always known you.

You have taught me more than I could ever teach you.

And as much as you needed a family, your family needed you even more.

Oh how we love you! Forever and ever and ever....

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me. Matthew 18:1-5
