And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

We have been out of the hospital for a few days and it has really been fun to get some time with Mimi and Pa!  Critter has absolutely enjoyed herself especially now that she has been reunited with Mommy and Daddy.  Saturday we all got to watch the Aggies and root for the good ol' boys before taking on some tex-mex at On The Border.  Let's just say that Critter did not disappoint in showing off her new salsa eating skills!

Sunday had a special treat as Critter got to meet her Great Aunt from New York.  She brought Pierson a beautiful shawl and a miniature puppy just like Critter's big one at home!   Critter was absolutely enthralled.  She's been running all over the house with her new puppy!!

With Aunt P & Uncle M
The whole Fam!
 Today we played hard as Critter got to ride on her very first Carousel, twice.  Our little girl loved it and cannot wait for her next opportunity.  Thanks, Mimi!  And while that should have been the highlight of the day, it may have been topped by Pa playing a form of hide-and-seek after dinner that filled the house with incredible and super contagious laughter!  What a special moment!

Riding the Carousel the first time with Daddy!
We found a smaller one that she wanted to ride, too!
Her second time on the Carousel!  She was waving at everyone!!

Can you see how much she was lovin' it?

So while we have had a long week and a half here it has been a joy for Critter to get some good Grandparent time.
Playing in Mimi & Pa's backyard.
Taking a break.  She loves the leaves.  She has a large pile next to her on the step that she spent much time gathering.
Running up Mimi & Pa's hill!

As for M, since being out of the hospital she has experienced much of the same...multiple seizures each day, a severe migraine that lasted for nearly two days.  A sweet moment occurred this morning as M was not feeling well.  The three of us were gathered on the floor playing.  With M lying down, Critter started grabbing available blankets and started to cover Mommy.  She even grabbed a pillow from a nearby chair and put it under Mommy's head!  What's a sweet and precious girl!

Please keep praying for M.  We are supposed to visit with our new doc Wednesday, but we are going to reach out to him tomorrow for follow up.  May he have a clear direction on where to go from here!
