With only two months left until her second birthday, Joey + Rory shared a special "first" moment with their daughter, Indiana.
In a picture collage posted to the couple's Facebook page, Joey + Rory shared that "Indy," as they call her, got to wash her own hair for the first time. Although it may seem like a simple thing to us, it appears to have been an exciting moment for Indy, who is shown laughing in all of the pictures.
Indy's big "first" comes just days after Joey had her own big "first" in some time. After her cancer had left her bedridden for so long, Joey simply decided that it was time to get out of bed. As Rory wrote in a post on his blog, This Life I Live, Joey wants to live every second of her life to the fullest.
"She said that when you’re lying in a bed day after day and you can do nothing and you don’t know if you’re gonna be here next Christmas, or next month or even next week… you suddenly become hyper-aware that today… that this moment – is all you have. And that today is enough. It truly is a gift."
Considering how much every moment means to Joey + Rory, we're sure they were both so thankful to share Indy's precious "first" moment together.
Joey + Rory have always been grateful for life's simple things, something they sing about in their 2010 song "That's Important To Me," which you can enjoy listening to below.
We continue to pray each and every day for Joey, Rory, and little Indy.
