It's been a while Baby!

I know it's been a while since I have written. I'm really sorry about that. I will log on and update you on our lives later but right now I want to take a moment and tell you about a really cool website. There are not a lot of things Chloe can do. She doesn't play with toys like other little girls her age. Little Tikes, Playskool, Fisher Price are all present in our home, but are used about as much as the Total Gym is used in yours. Plush baby dolls, and plush animals are about the only thing I have seen her get excited over. She has her famous Duckie of course. But she loves to give them kisses. It makes my heart smile and as you know since our diagnosis, heart smiles are few and far between. One day I was looking for a plush baby doll that she could play with that would be unique like her. Then I found it, Baby Be Blessed.
Its a website made by stay at home Christian moms who make dolls with a Bible verse patch sewn on the dolls tummy. You pick the doll, the hair color, the skin color, the dress and the Bible verse. They sew the doll and Viola! You can even add freckles, glasses and even a flower. We ordered one for Chloe, I'll let you know how it looks when we get her. I've dropped some not so subtle hints I want the Valentines Day one. I love the idea of Bobby picking out the details of this sweet doll, and then deciding on a Bible verse with me, his beloved, to put on her. I love the idea of him lovingly picking out her little outfit just for me. I know I'm a dork. But to me that doll, paired with dinner and a movie, throw in a red rose and you have the perfect Valentines Day. It's romantic, thoughtful, timeless and sweet. Ok I digress. Please please please at least check out this site. At the very least I might win a precious little pink lamb.
