Finally ... A Tooth!

Victoria turned a year old on March 10th and she is just now getting in her first tooth! I was worried for a little while that she would be toothless, but thankfully, I have seen her first front, bottom tooth wriggling its way out of her gum. Unfortunately, Victoria has not gained a lot of weight lately because of the fact that she cannot eat substantial foods yet (because of her lack of teeth). At Victoria's last visit to her pediatrician, her doctor talked about referring us to an eating clinic to see how we could put more calories into Victoria's little body. When Victoria starts walking the extra intake of calories will be very crucial.

Victoria is now pulling herself up from sitting to standing! She is beginning to "cruise" while holding onto furniture and she is also beginning to crawl! So many exciting things are happening and I couldn't be happier. She is such a sweet girl who has been through a lot in her short life, so it is awesome to see her continuing to progress! God has and continues to be so good to her and our family!

Here is a video of Victoria pulling up from sitting to standing!

Here is a video of Victoria crawling in her own little way tonight while we were playing before bed!

Wow! Victoria is doing very well. I am so proud of you as a mother, you are doing a fantastic job. I know your house is a never ending, seldom silent place but there will be plenty of times in the distant future for quiet. This is an amazing time for God to do His great work in the lives of three beautiful women. You are blessed and you are such a blessing. By the way, I have not told you how much I appreciate all that you did to make the Pastors' Conference wonderful. Thanks for giving heart and soul to all you do.

Heather, these videos make me smile and cry! I was so rooting for Victoria to reach that necklace, lol!

Glad she got her tooth and the eye duct fixed.

Blessings to you all...
