rolling and eating

Lucy was 7 months old last week! She got some good rolls in on her 7 month birthday!
I love Landon's voice. He is fascinated with these socks because he only wears flip flops lately.

 

We also tried some cereal this week. It seems to be taking much longer than her big brother to get the hang of it, but we will keep at it. He quickly went from a taste to a serving for a weeek then veggies. But like everything with her, it seems she's just a little slower catching on.


She is grabbing EverYthIng near her!


I made it a little bit thicker the next day, and she did a little bit better.
And just a picture to make you laugh................................
Her eye had some issues this week, but after about 5 days of medicine in it, there seems to be no more drainage & swelling is gone.  Luke took this picture and said, "her face looks so gross". =)

"Blessings"

Have you heard this song? This is one of the songs that I would bawl to while driving to or from the NICU back at the beginning of the year.
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise.

  I think the lines that are not heard the first time we listen are these:
We cry in anger when we cannot  feel you near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from your Word is not enough.
All the while you hear each desperate plea,
and long that we'd have faith to believe.
Go ahead and listen to the song after you hear the story behind it .(sorry you might  have to stop the band perry song below).



Say an extra prayer for some friends of mine. They've got another baby on the way & found out about some medical issues regarding his heart. Pray for peace for mom and dad until the baby comes. Pray for healing! Pray for the doctors, nurses, and surgeons who will be working with the sweet boy shortly after he enters the world. We love you guys!

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28
