Running

Everytime I look at Reagan all I can do is smile. She gives me such joy. Even when I'm feeling so incredibly sad, I look at her beautiful face and see her smile and my heart is filled with love. It's amazing how much life changes when you become a mom. I would do anything for my babies. I did everything in my power to save our sweet Eden. At one point while in TX I asked the transplant MD's if they could use a lobe of my lung for Eden. Mother's Day was bittersweet. I'm so blessed to be a mom but in the same breath I'm so sad. Sad that I don't have half of my heart, sad that I can't look at Eden's beautiful face and see her smile too. I will always have saddness in my life, especially on days like Mother's Day. But I have to make a choice to be happy and to allow my heart to be filled with love from Reagan. Some days its harder than others, but I know I have to be happy for Reagan, Scott and Eden. Eden is happy, she wants me to be happy. Reagan is one busy little girl. She is 21 lbs and 32 inches tall! Tall and skinny! She runs everywhere! We play outside everyday and Scott takes her for bike rides almost everyday. They biked over 50 miles this week and she LOVES it. One of our best investments was our chariot. She is trying to expand her vocabulary but ultimately her default word is baba- baba was originally only used for puppies but now she says it when she doesn't know a word. Eating by mouth is going much better, she has made tremendous progress! She will try everything we put in front of her and she's not at all picky. She still has some trouble figuring out how to chew and swallow all textures and sizes but she's getting there. We are so incredibly proud of her. We are very close to officially rolling out our foundation, Eden's Garden. We are doing another event on June 2nd at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds called the Baby Steps 3K which will benefit Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota NICU. We are thrilled to be apart of this event, we will be walking in memory of Eden and in honor of Reagan. I even have a special role of reading a story to the children. There's still time if you would like to join our team, Eden's Garden- we would love for you to walk with us!! Our t-shirts are beautiful and we will be rolling them out on Facebook tomorrow.
