Yesterday marked the 6th month of Marianne's life. What a lot has happened since the birth! And what a change for the better she is showing lately. We are ever so grateful!
It was the toughest 6 months of my life. There have been tears, prayers, worries, and those all many times over. Many Drs checkups that were not always very helpful. Lots of exhausting short nights. Trying to get enough milk into her with a syringe so she would get enough. Wondering at first if she would even make it as weak as she had become once we realized that something was wrong. I had to stay home much longer with her because she needed so much time to eat. There was no time and energy left for anything else.
So many people have helped. So many people have prayed! How I thank everyone for doing what you did for us! I wish there was a better way of thanking everyone personally, but I know that is impossible. I just hope these photos are a small reward for you! God certainly answered many prayers.
At 6 months she has reached the 30th percentile again and almost doubled her weight. Its still a ways away from the 85th but it is much better than it was. She is a vibrant, excited little girlie doing everything that the book says a 6 month old should.
She can almost sit. She rolls over every which way in bed and is starting to push up on her knees when in bed.She laughs, cries and smiles. She gets excited when daddy comes home. She loves it when her older siblings play with her; she loves playing with toys. She gets upset if we take her toys away.
She is our little miracle.
Are her troubles all over? We certainly don't have the answer to that, but we are forbidden to be anxious for tomorrow.
I never knew how much love I had in my heart to give until God gave me
A special child to love.
