Sweet Sixteen

On January 18th sixteen years ago, our life changed dramatically.

Ashley Lynn Post was born after 16 hours of labor and then finally a c-section. The whole labor and deliver room went silent once she came out, when the doctor announced that she had hydrocephalus. She also had a pneumothorax(collapsed lung) and was possibly septic.

Fast forward 16 years and we have our miracle! Ashley is doing great, is in her sophomore year at Highland High School and amazes us and others daily!

The day after she was born

The first time I really got to see her before they took her up to Primary's
(day after she was born with the Life Flight crew, notice her head size)

Ashley opening presents (Nathan took the picture!)

We went to Golden Corral for her birthday dinner

Nathan eating his plate of Cheetos!

Blowing out the candles on her Eclair Cake-A Post Birthday tradition!


  1. Wow! I can't believe she is 16- she really is a miracle! Happy birthday Ashley. Seeing your eclair cake makes me want to go make one right now! Yummy! You are such an amazing Mom! Love you!!!

  2. I remember all of that--hearing the news and the updates on her surgeries...cannot believe she is 16! Love that girl.

  3. 16 ... where has the time gone! Such an amazing girl turning into a young lady. Love her xoxox
