Growing!

A sweet pic of Joel and Grandma singing and making music together on tuesday night:



Today's pics of Joshua:





Basically that's what Joshua needs to do - grow! Breathe, sleep, eat, grow, learn to breast feed. And that's what he's doing. He's 4lb 2oz right now and getting feeds through a tube in his nose down into his tummy every 3 hours. He did really well with breast feeding this morning - latched on and did some good suck, swallow and breathing for me! Woo hoo! He's so sweet, and beautiful and I have a hard time leaving the hospital -- except for the fact that Joel is at home and I know he needs me too (and I need to sleep and eat and rejuvinate for the next day!) God has been so good to us.

Thanks so much for all the prayers, love, support, emails, phone calls, suppers, visits ... it's cool to know that people all over the world are supporting us in this. We love you guys!

Terri says: I'm addicted to your blog! OK true confessions, it's just that you and your men are on my mind a lot. So, I'm always checking for the updates. I think I was first to comment 2 days in a row now.

But seriously, both your boys are beautiful and we are praying for both of them during this challenging blip in life. We love you all!!!! T

Having not been around on blogs so much during the past week, I'm trying to catch up and have been looking at the photos of your precious Joshua and catching up with his progress. Praying for you all, including Joel who is also a delight.
