She smiles!

Well, despite all the trials and tribulations of colic/acid reflux/whatever it is that troubles her much of the time, our little girl is thriving and growing - and even smiling! We have good days and we have bad days, and smiles like these make the bad days infinitely more bearable.
Last but not least, a photo of Linnea doing what she has basically been doing most all week long - napping on Nana. A huge THANK YOU to our wonderful families who have swooped in to support us through these last loooong weeks - Gramma & Grampa, Nana, Aunt Aimee, Aunt Nanci/Uncle Andrew/Cousins Kelsey & Evan have all come to lend a hand, as well as friends and church family members, and we are more grateful than we can ever express.

Ryan and Nikki--I must admit it's been awhile since I've been to your blog. I'm so sorry you've had such a rough time. It must hurt you to see her crying too! It's great to see the smiling pictures though. You're in our prayers...I know it'll get better :)
