New Mercies

Bon jour, everyone! It's Erin and I'm finally writing my first blog entry... I'm so proud of myself! :o) So, I thought I'd start out with a cute video I filmed this morning with Lilee. It's been a real priviledge to get to see her personality form and emerge with every new day, especially when it involves big smiles and joyful giggles.

Yesterday, January 30th, we had a cardiologist appointment. It's been a month since her last one, so we were praying for a good report. After a brief check up with the doctor and an ultrasound of her heart, he said she sounded and looked good. Chris asked him if Lilee was "on par" with her weight, since we were set back a bit from being in the hospital. After Lilee's weigh in at over 11 lbs, his response was, "You don't have anything to worry about. She's made up for lost time". Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! We've laughed because she's "fattening up" and getting those cute little folds in her thighs. Cute on babies, not on mommies. :o)

So, that's the latest update. Thought you'd enjoy seeing our happy little girl in action here at home. We continue to appreciate your fervent prayers and love we've received through this whole ordeal! Hope you keep checking this blog, as I'll keep it updated with fun tidbits often.

Love to you all!

Erin, Chris and "the bean"

Glad to hear you're going to be updating, Erin! We enjoy checking in on Roma's cousin, and it'll be nice to keep track of her doings! And those cute smiles... :-)

Love to you all!

I haven't opened the blog for a while. What a reward seeing that smiling face. I'm here at work and Elanor is next door in her cubicle so we got to laugh and enjoy it together. What a knock out she is!! Joy!! Auntie Leigh J.
