Latest Report

Last week Kaydence had another good checkup at her Biophysical Profile, which she will get every week until she arrives. The sonographer told us about everything she was looking for and said it all looked good. A top score would be 8 and she was an 8. Praise God! I know that this is in His hands. I know that Kaydence is developing and growing and she will be just fine.

Kaydence will make her debut somewhere around 10 weeks from now. TEN WEEKS! Oh my goodness that doesn't seem very long from now. This past weekend, Tommy and I finally got out Wade's crib and changing table and then we rearranged her room. We set up a full-sized bed as well and poor Tommy moved our bigger bed down to his parent's house so we could use their smaller mattress set. It felt so good to get all of that done! I felt so sure that everything will turn out great. The room feels like a bedroom now, but I have to admit that after I Old Englished every piece of furniture in that room, I could barely move to enjoy it. The crib was so filthy, but it looks brand new now. I will have to post a picture soon.

Funny thing about the filthy crib - it reminds me a lot of how we look as people to God. We are filthy, but just like Old English can make the crib new again, God can do the same thing for you and me! He will wash our sins away. All you have to do is accept Him. I couldn't resist to write that. Life isn't easy for sure no matter what, but I cannot imagine how hard life would be without God's grace.

What Are We About To Do Now?

First of all, I made a note to myself after talking with some friends, that I am going to blog more now. Why now? Where have I been all this time? When I went back to teaching, it kind of wiped out my energy and thinking ability! That has all changed now as I am staying home again.Why did we make the decision for me to stay home again? God just opens doors and shuts them, and this time He told me to shut the teaching door and focus on my family. So that is what I am doing.

This next weekend, we will embark on a new adventure with Kaydence Grace. After seeing some amazing things from a fellow CMV mother about her daughter's intensive therapy program, I decided to ask questions. She told me how wonderful a job the Kennedy Krieger Institute had done with her daughter. I figured what did we have to lose in taking Kaydence across the country for therapy? Nothing. We have nothing to lose (except funds, but hey, we will pay them to someone regardless!) The clinic decided that the best pl…

Oh the Places the Neylands Go

Today was our appointment at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. All I can say is WOW! What an amazing place! But before we get to the details of that appointment, I would like to first share some of the journey here to Baltimore.

We left out on Saturday morning. We stopped in Memphis, Tennessee, and took the kids to Beale Street. While there we ate at the most Memphis kind of place...The Pig. What is better than pulled pork in Memphis? In this bar-diner atmosphere blaring the Blues, I figured we were really in for it as Kaydence Grace is not a fan of loud places. Turns out the kid likes the Blues. Hard core, did not even plug her ears, likes the Blues kid! I can work with this. We made sure to ride in a cheesy horse-drawn Cinderella carriage for Abigail. Abigail's Memphis observation: Why does everyone in the city want money? Homelessness and begging has been a little hard to explain to our small-town kids.

Sunday we traveled on to Knoxville, home of the Tennessee Vols. It is also hom…

Smiles Today

Last week was a busy week. Wade had a district baseball tournament. It was hoooootttt. Three days in a row at 5:30 PM, on a hot July afternoon is not cool (as in "cool man" and in temperature.) The first two days we were on the dugout and fan side facing the setting sun. I purchased Kona Ice from my beautiful friend Karey, and poor Kaydence Grace sucked them down and was just laying there, sizzling like bacon in a frying pan. I was sweating so profusely that Abigail made sure to tell me how bad I smelled. I was so exhausted I think that I am still catching up. By Wednesday night, I left Kaydence to stay with her Aunt Jenni so at least she wouldn't suffer another night.

Also on Wednesday, I turned 40. Forty years old. I don't feel 40. Well, I did after the late afternoon heat three days in a row, but I'm trying to process what 40 is supposed to be. I commented on Facebook how thankful I actually am to be another year older, because so many do not make it to that a…
