Happy Birthday Peanut
It is so hard to believe our sweet little Peanut is five today; it is really embarrassing that we left our zip drive at home with all our photos and this was the latest one, from Christmas, I could find on hubby's laptop.
This was taken at the Christmas Program and her sister, Miss D, is in the background. Our Peanut has overcome a lot of challenges in her five years; from five months on she battled severe GERD and was in Children's Hospital twice. Along with the GERD, she had other challenges as well and the doctors could not remedy her physical problems. Thankfully, our daughter and sil found a holistic M.D. who found the root problem to be food sensitivities, including gluten. This has made a world of difference in her life and although she still suffers with some of the problems, to us it is a miracle that she has come so far. She is a bright child, gifted in art and math and a joy to all who love her. When a child struggles to grow and thrive, it touches your heart in a very special way. We celebrated her birthday before we left but I'm sure her family will do something special for her day. I can't wait to see what her future holds; one thing for sure is that she will have a strong temperament-a child with such a serious illness, early on, develops a tenacity and strong character.
Happy Birthday baby girl; we love you!
