Inspiration for today...

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Philippians 4: 4-8

Update on Baby T

The kiddos are not allowed in NICU so they have only seen her through the window for about three minutes. D made her a picture of "Our Family" so she would know who they all are. We hung it on her little crib for her. Can you tell who is K by the whale spout on her head? :)Baby T is doing great - she had maintained her body temp enough to be put at room temperature today. Which means they will pop the top on her crib. She had a hard time maintaining her temp after her first bath but did great after her second bath. She is up to 42 ml per feeding which is her "goal" feeding and so this morning they started adding fortifier to it to help give her more calories and grow more. Last night she gained a whole ounce back and so she is back up to 4 pounds 4.5 ounces and hopefully tonight will gain some more (they weigh them at midnight).
Once she has gained some more weight and strength we will have her start eating from bottles. Then once she tolerates all her feedings either nursing or bottles and she is gaining weight she can come HOME!!!! I was hoping this would happen before Dan left for Canada but I don't foresee that happening. Shouldn't be too long though. I am excited to have her home!

Just saw your post!! Heard about Tessa from the grape vine, but was fun to read your story and see the pictures. Looking forward to seeing her!! Emily has enjoyed the baby pictures.
Praying for your swift recovery and Tessa's weight gain.
