Mae's BFF Lucy

To all of our friends and family who may or may not know the Hopkins', Josh, Sarah, and Lucy are the strongest little family. Lucy Kate was born with a few heart defects and had surgery yesterday to repair the damage, she is recovering in the PICU at Riley Hospital. My friend of almost 16 years and I have been through many things together, but this is the most difficult thing she has had to endure and I feel so helpless to her. All I can do is continue to pray for them and ask you to do the same. So please pray for Sarah and Josh to continue having the strength they need for each other and their precious little girl and please pray for Lucy to make a full recovery and to get back home soon. We LOVE you!

Mae is 4 months old!

I cannnot believe it's August and Mae is over 4 months old! Each day she changes a bit, so we never have a dull moment...
Some things she is doing:
-Rolls over from belly to back and sometimes back to belly
-Is VERY chatty, especially with her musical octopus (see older post)
-Likes to squawk at Mommy and Daddy, hitting the high notes very well
-Wants to go outside and go for a walk or play
-Watches people and is very interested in what they are doing
-Loves to chew on EVERYTHING!

At her four moth check up, she weighed 13.9lbs and was 25 inches long! She is 50th percentile for weight, but 75th for height...We just think she is awesome and we love her so much!
