Gracyn is our middle child. Gracyn was born with congenital CMV. Because of this, we have spent a lot of time in hospitals, with doctors and therapists, and learning a whole new normal. The biggest effect it had on her is that it left her deaf. In April of 2016, we were able to get her a cochlear implant and that has opened her life up to sound! She is our “sour patch kid.” She can do something she shouldn’t do, then flash the biggest smile and completely melt you! Because she was my second girl, most would think that she got hand me downs from Xandrie…wrong! Gracyn was only 3 lbs 8 oz when she was born and has struggled to gain weight her whole life so none of the clothes I had from Xandrie fit her during the right seasons. So, oh darn, I had to buy her all new clothes (yes, that was sarcasm). One of my favorite things with Gracyn is that she has to wear a headband to keep her implant on, so hello accessories!!
