Becky here.... I love to hear from Tara, but she is apparently busy LIVING LIFE, so I will post some photos. I have to say, these are the days of our lives - life is really good! Tara is living a normal life as much as possible now. There are many times I am brought to tears as I just watch her with her baby, just holding Addie and enjoying her and it's just too much happiness to hold inside! I realize at times again, what a miracle it really is that Tara can act like a normal mother with normal mother concerns such as:
Feeding a baby, getting her to sleep, loving her, dressing her up, etc. etc.
Addie has been a very active baby (no sleepiness from seizure meds for this baby!!) and she has given Tara plenty of challenges - getting her to sleep for longer than 30 or 40 minutes at a time is one of them. Although she will sleep at night, but of course still wakes up once or twice or sometimes more:) Anyway, my point is, Tara is loving the regular challenges of life, and she loves this little Addie more than she can imagine! I love spending time with them both and watching Addie grow, and watching Tara love Addie. I love seeing Tara happy.
Tara still deals with tiredness from seizure meds and an active baby, some sporadic headaches and dizziness, but thankfully no brain tumors. I pray every single day for her continued health. Every day I also pray and am so thankful she is HERE with Josh and Addie. HERE, just living life. And, I am eternally grateful for all of you who also pray for Tara and love her as well! We wouldn't be where we are without you all! So, here's a few pictures!!!

Nathan on his high school graduation night with Addie. I'll be an empty nester in September when Nate leaves for a mission for our church to Hermasillo, Mexico!!

Today at a doctor's appointment. I love Tara's new short haircut!!!
