THREE years of blessings...

Happy 3rd Birthday Evie Jayne!! (:

How do you put into words three years of God's ourpouring of love and hope! We are thriled to have shared the past three years with both of our girls, and watch them grow into amazing kids!!

Evie has had an EXCITING birthday month. Excitement here in the Elsaesser home can be good and bad. We'll start with the good. Evie had an amazing birthday week, filled with family lunch, the zoo, and a birthday party at the nail salon with a girlfriend from school (: Her walking is getting amazing!! Here is a video from the zoo:

Unfortunately Friday night after her birthday party she fell in our basement and was in a lot of pain. We went to the ER and they thought she may have just bruised it but we saw her Orthopedic Surgeon on Monday who confirmed that she has a fracture. He sent us over to the orthotics company that makes her AFO braces and they made her a fancy HKAFO (hip knee ankle foot orthotic) so she can still move around and keep exercising her leg. After a pretty miserable weekend it was great to have a solution that would help her get around. She was back to school Thursday and back to music class today.

So we have a new brace for the next three weeks before her next x-ray. Hopefully things will heal well and the brace will keep the fracture from getting worse. We feel super blessed to live in a city with so many pediatric specialists (:

I can't get my photos to upload, so Big Girl Birthday Photos will be coming soon.

Here's to many more years with our sweet Evie!!

Love you friends (:
