The past two months have been a blur. They have been filled with ups, downs, laughter, tears, many doctors appointments, many hours awake, and a little girl I couldn’t trade for the world. Charis Emery was born to us two months ago and we love her more than words could express. She has something called laryngomalacia (la-ring-o-mah-lay-sha), which most people have never heard of. It causes Charis to have a hard time eating and breathing at the same time. It also causes a lot of crying and a whole lot of missed sleep. It has been trying, but most of all for me it has been revealing.
