26 weeks

Olivia is 26 weeks gestation today. Last night she weighed in at 1lb 7oz - getting to be such a big girl! The doctor upped her feedings because she is continuing to tolerate them so well. She's getting 3ml every 3 hours. We are so thankful! Reid changed her diaper for the first time today. The bravest I've been was taking her temperature. Reid is officially Super Dad! I'm so proud of what a hands on daddy he already is. Olivia is one lucky little girl.

And, due to overwhelming response, here are a few more pictures of livi... :)



We thank you for continued prayers!

Mary Virginia...What precious pictures of sweet and strong Olivia. I shared your story with my group of girlfriends last night and it was followed by a prayer for her and for you and Reid. So many prayers are being sent up!

Hi! I don't know you, but just wanted you to know I've been following and praying for you!! You and your husband's faith is amazing and I can't wait to see your sweet girl grow! God bless!

Christy said...

What a blessing you are to those around you and how you continue to glorify His name through everything! I'm praying, you don't know me but I stumbled across your blog and just know, people are praying!

I found your blog through a friend's blog. I just had to write and tell you that, even though every person's grief is unique, I can understand the pain you are going through right now. I lost my mom unexpectedly on March 30, 2007 while pregnant with my daughter. 15 days later, on April 14th, my daughter was born due to my amniotic water leaking and the presence of infection. She was born at 23 weeks and lived for just a few moments. Losing someone close to you is difficult, losing your child(ren) is unthinkable - the two together is devastating. I am so very sorry you are going through this. I wish you peace. I will be thinking of you and your sweet baby, Olivia. I wish you all well.

I have been following your blog for some time (over from Mo at LIfe & Love in the Petri Dish). I also have not checked it in a few weeks. I am so sorry. May your God guide you through this difficult time. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
