"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

Sparkly

Rachel is so very sparkly this morning....twirling her hands and smiling with big toothless gums.  She is also urgently talking to me about something - and just eagerly waiting for my glance of encouragement to continue. Sometimes I wonder - will we ever hear her speak?  It seems so impossible now - she doesn't make recognizable sounds - it's more like a vibration in the throat, similar to a cry....but oh, I would love to hear her say daddy or mommy.  ok, now its a cry.  "30 mls of milk coming up dear!!"

Nothing is impossible--had you been asked the day before having her, you would have never predicted where you are at now!
