|Seth and Will liked experimenting being on the different sides of the gate, although here Seth is just fascinated with a zip-tie. :) Please keep praying that Seth will be as fascinated by and accepting of food and drink. Thankfully, he's done better the past few days after a week of frustration and refusal to eat almost every time we tried.|
|I'm telling you, that was one fascinating zip-tie. (See his left hand.)|
The tape on Seth's face is for protecting his skin when we affix his oxygen cannula at night. He'll need oxygen for another 4-6 weeks (night only) just as supportive therapy to make sure his lungs get the time and help they need to grow and heal completely following his two recent hospitalizations. PLEASE KEEP PRAYING SETH AND ALL OF US WILL STAY WELL! We thank and praise God for the past few weeks of excellent health. What a relief!
|"Aunt Nay" again with Seth just sacked out on top of her. He was having a hard day.|
|Marcie is a MESS! She gets food in as fast as she can, never mind the fact that a lot of it misses her mouth. The babies are supposed to be finger-feeding themselves (and even starting to spoon-feed themselves) at this age. Self-feeding = messy feeding, as all of you know. Gavin wonders if any of the food really stays in their mouths as the floor ends up looking like the bottom of a bird cage.|
The babies all had their one-year-old checkup and passed with flying colors, praise God! The pediatrician was very pleased by their development and growth. Seth was crawling all over, babbling constantly, and pulling up on the doctor's knee, and of course David had to walk all over the room holding something in his hand, I forget what. Marcie and Gracie were the charmers they always are, and Will was a bit astounding in his "bigness," especially the size of his feet. He's already in a 5!
Thanks for loving and caring about our kiddos! Thanks especially for praying and for the continued many ways in which you bless us.
