Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

i am trying to wrestle with the idea of sending out the most recent pictures of Alivia. she is in the PICU (pediatric intensive care unit). And the pictures aren't pretty...they are very very hard to look at. She doesn't look like herself but it is good to know that she feels no pain and that she will not remember any of this.

I guess I will say this if you want a picture of her please e-mail me and I will send out a mass e-mail with the photos but if you don't I totally understand. Decide what you can handle and what you need to see. If it will give you a better idea of what she is going through I will share.

Thanks for the continued prayer and support.

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

We are praying for your family and especially your sweet girl, Alivia. We are looking forward to hearing about how God is going to overwhelm you with His goodness and power in this intense season of your lives.

And we are praying that you truly can say with confidence, even during this extremely difficult time, "How good it is to be loved by You".

We love you guys and aren't too far away, so please let us know if you need anything.
Jimmy, Abby, Jack, & Charli Cannon
(Charli is my baby girl and she's just a month older than Alivia...hopefully they'll be friends someday) :)

Truly have had you on my mind all day long. Just continuing to pray for a miracle and that the doctors would truly be amazed by Alivia's recovery. In the meantime, I know that your example of Christ-likeness is already a witness to the staff at Hershey Medical Center. Pauline

James & Emily,
You and Alivia have been weighing heavily on our hearts! We wish so badly that we could help in some way...so we will be praying for you hard core! We know the best thing we can do is ask God to intercede and to heal your precious little angel. Just know that we love you guys so much and we are here for you...in thoughts and in prayers. And we aren't too far away so we can always come visit too. Don't know if you care for visitors at this time, but we'd love to come any time...no matter what the tone would be. We miss you guys. Don't forget to have faith in the one God that can do ANYTHING. He has no limitations (no matter what percentages they give you)so you can rest in him and his control when you dont have any. We love you.

Hey guys....I'm so sorry to hear about Alivia. I will be praying for her to get well as quickly as possible. Being so far away, I've watched her grow in pictures and she's the cutest little thing. I know that this must be so hard for you. We have to trust that God won't give us anything we can't handle...You must have a strong little girl (much like her mother)! Love you guys. My thoughts and prayers are with you everyday.
