"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Doing Really Well

I just wanted to let you know that Rachel has been doing really well lately.  She is eating alot - meaning, that she is eating 20 mls at a time, sometimes even 30 mls (2 tbls).  And she is eating often, sometimes every half hour.  So I have felt busy taking care of her - maybe it's a growth spurt!  It feels strange saying that when she still only weighs 2 pounds more than when she was born! 

She has also had some very happy moments and has even laughed for us. We are enjoying this time with her!As for sleep - I think I always feel tired!  But we are doing well.  We don't have respite on Fridays and Sundays and then we play catch-up on the rest of the days.

It's so great to hear that you and Rachel are doing so well. The girls still call their smallest doll "baby Rachel" so she is thought of many times around here. We miss you and hope to be able to see you sometime soon.
