Update....


I would like to start by asking for prayers for Leah and Ryan who are expecting their precious little boy this Friday. His name is Christian Dale Paige. He has Trisomy 18. So we need to desperately cover this little one in prayer. God is so good and if it be His will that Leah and Ryan be able to spend many days (too many to count)with Christian. I have added his name to the sidebar of Annabel's site.
In advance, thank you for your prayers for all of God's children.
Annabel seems to be doing better with her feeds. We cut back the amount of her baby food that is spoon fed to her and decrease the pediasure down to just two feeds a day, 4 oz. cranberry juice and less water. She seems to be more comfortable, with less gagging and no more spitting or vomitting. YIPPEE! Also, her nights are better. Saturday night she slept a total of 12 hours with no waking up. We opted for night church since she was sleeping so well. Thank you to all who offered their advice and I did make sure she was sitting up and not laying her down too early. I can't thank you enough for your support and all of you who offer words of encouragment and prayers. Sometimes I have to sit here and remember that I haven't even met all of you and I feel like I know all of you so well. I am so grateful for all of my friends and thank God for you each and every day.

Hello lady!! I can say that I have had those days like you had a couple of days ago. You just sometimes feel so overwhelmed almost. The good thing is that when we have those days usually our little ones have smiles for us and that makes it worth it all. One thing that I wanted to tell you about the feedings that you may have already tried is feeding her a little slower. Dawson was very gaggy when we tried to increase his feeds so we slowed it down. I will send you an email with what we did. I am praying for you guys and I want you to know that you encourage me everytime I read your blog. Give Annabel kisses from us. Renae
