24 Weeks or 3 days-Take Your Pick

Behold the newest star in the circus of my life.....Miss Bella Marie!!! No autographs, please. Be sure and check out the latest trends in hats or as I like to refer to hers, pup tents. To give you an idea of how tiny our new baby is, that little pink gauze neck roll is about the size of a band-aid and just wait until you get a load of her pampers! Now hold your hand up, look at your thumb and that is the size of her tiny foot. Both mother and daughter are still doing as well as can be expected and I would love for y'all to continue to send up prayers that little Bella will go from one pound to five quickly! I don't like to wish away days or live in the future, but the next four months will surely go slow. Thank you all so much for the love and prayers!

Bella. So beautiful. Prayers continue. I'm an empathetic eater. If I have a sundae, do you think that will help her gain weight? ha! Congrats again. ~Mindy

Deb, how does a total stranger fall in love with a new tiny baby? I don't know, but what a precious gift Bella Marie is. Love to you and Jenn and Bella and all the rest.

Deb.. One of my best friends gave birth to her darling daughter, Jordyn, at 23 weeks... Today Jordyn is a lively and precious 6-year old big sister. She has had a couple of bouts with respirtory infections - which is common for children born premature... but Jordyn is a blessing to her family and we friends...

I pray that your precious little Bella grows quickly, gains weight, and flourishes in the care of her neonatal care givers...

The Lord has truly blessed your family with this precious little gift.

blessings. Dixie

Oh my goodness, the gift of life is truly amazing no matter how tiny the package! I know your hearts are just over flowing with love for this special little girl. I pray Bella grows and gets stronger every day, so she can go to her own home. And, I pray Jenn continues to heal and will have the strength for the days ahead...and the same for all of you.

Oh,Deb, Bella is a teeny tiny precious doll! Have you been allowed to touch her yet? I know you can't wait to snatch that sweet baby up and rock her! I don't think I have ever seen a premature baby before. I'm sure I can't even imagine how itsy bitsy she is! Well, I tell you one thing...the prayers continue to go up for Bella and her entire family who are squishing their faces against the glass trying to see her better! She is a blessing...and I am sure she will continue to be!

Sorry you had to miss the Treasure Hunt. We had fun! You know, I had to miss your Mother's birthday party because Lurch was in the hospital! Guess we need to start checking with each other about our online celebrations and see if we can work them in between hospital times! :)

If you have time today, go check out my new blog!

So tiny and just perfect! Praying she'll be gaining weight quickly. I could give her a few pointers. ;-)

She's one lucky baby to have a grandma that loves her so much.
