"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

Growth Spurt Time?

Rachel has been eating alot lately.  She still continues to eat every hour (on average) but the amounts are higher than usual. Sometimes she downs 40-50 mls at once.  She seems stronger, which enables her to eat longer before she tires out - and getting more fluids in turn helps her to be stonger.  It was a very tough night for respite though.  Rachel needed to feed every hour and sometimes twice an hour.  But, overall she has been much more content lately.  Ethan and Abigail are really enjoying her too.   

I have yet to get a video of her rolling from her tummy to her back. Each time I waited for a long time and then (of course!) she decided to roll just after I stopped the camera.  But I'll keep trying.  It is so wonderful to see her this strong and happy - and yes, my mama heart is very proud.

Thank-you for all your notes!
