Last post for awhile

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been advised to suspend the blog until AD's adoption is final. Please continue to pray that this process goes smoothly. I am looking forward to updating you when it is official!

We're still here...and growing!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to post...motherhood is keeping me pretty busy these days! Thank you all so much for your prayers. Anna Dixon is doing great!!! All her cultures remained clear. It turned out to be nothing more that a little cold, but boy was that traumatic! Our sweet girl is growing like a weed. It is just amazing to watch her change right before our eyes. She does not look like the same baby that arrived on December 6th. When we went to the doctor for the ER/hospital follow up, she was already 10 lbs. 1.5 oz. and that was almost a month ago. She is so alert now, smiling like crazy, starting to track things with her eyes, and holding her head up like a champ when she is on my shoulder. Most notably, she has been sleeping for 7-8 hours at night since last Friday!!! Praise the Lord! She is a happy baby but is not afraid to let you know when she needs a diaper change or a bottle. This little girl does not miss a meal! Tommy and I feel so blessed to be her parents and are having a blast loving on our precious baby girl!

"I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him." I Samuel 1:27

Here are some pictures to show how she has grown...
