Keep us in your Prayers

I need your prayer please!! Please pray for my family and keep us in your thoughts over the holidays. I can't really elaborate right now, but I would appreciate your thoughts and strength at this time.

This prayer request is not Wysdom related just in case you are wondering. Of course you can go ahead and pray for him to, but I just wanted to let you know that he is doing fine. He actually seems to be thriving right now. He is playing a lot more and interested in new things. He seems to be trying to communicate with babbling and occasionally says mama . Like last night when he was upset.Mama only comes out when he is mad so far, but hey I will take it. He also used the sign for up with such energy and force last night when he was upset. I wish I had it on video. It was like "Pick me up now, mama". I loved it.

This week he got a visit from the feeding team and we got to see his overall progress on growth. He is currently a big boy and weighing in at 20 pounds and change. He is at the 75% for weight and 50% for height on the down syndrome charts. He is also learning to try to bottle again and is giving it a good effort.

We have a couple of more appointments before the holiday's arrive. I have done most of my shopping this week in little spurts and am almost done. Blyss is very excited and I can't wait to see Wysdom open up a gift for the first time. We are still trying to see if we can raise some money over the holidays for Reece's Rainbow(see previous post). Things are a little crazy in our lives right now but we still want to try raise some funds,so I will keep you posted on that as well:)
