She's back...

Let me begin by wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I know that through Annabel we can't help but remember how thankful we all are. God is so good and He brings such beautiful things through such innocent babies. Here Annabel is pictured with my sister, her Aunt Lira and my brother, uncle Carl.

Annabel has seemed to do well with the rest from the holiday. Each day she has seemed to have more energy and has taken a growth spurt. We are still taking the breast milk and I am so grateful to our milk mommies.

We have switched to a new pediatrician and when we weighed in her weight was 22.4oz. The last time about 3 weeks ago at the prior pediatrician she weighed 21.4. No I don't think she has gain a whole pound (I am sure their scales weigh differently) but I do know she has put on weight. She has also has a virus and so I was happy to see that she hasn't lost weight.

She is on very little oxygen as compared to the last month or so. Not sure if this is due to the move, weather changes or just Annabel! But the less stress is a welcomed relief.

This is such a brief update but there is a precious little girl with Trisomy 18 who is around 200 days or so. She is struggling and in need of everyones prayers. If when you read this you could just say a brief prayer for Zoe. Her blogsite is She has been doing very well prior to undergoing heart surgery and encountered an infection.

Again, as always thanks to everyone who visits Annabel site
