One Year Ago

Right after Avery was born, before my blogging days, I started a little journal of sorts. I was looking over it today and found this post from that journal exactly one year ago today. I thought I would post it here as a reminder of how far we have come. So here are some of my thoughts from one year ago today:
This is Avery on 2/27/08


Today Avery is 3 pounds 1.6 ounces. Slowly but surely. I feel like we are on a roll now. I hope so. She is doing so well. Today they did say she has a little eye infection. Nothing serious though. We have been so blessed that she has done so well. God is so awesome and taking such great care of of Avery for us. Today they put her on "Ad Lib" which apparently means they give the preemies a regular size newborn baby bottle and let them take as much as they want. she had been on 25 cc's, then yesterday they gave her 30 cc's, but today they let her have the big girl bottle of mommys milk. She took 45 cc's of it until they took it away from her. She processed all of it. WOW I still feel like I wish all of this wasn't happening this way. I wish everything was normal like with my three babies and all my friends babies, and their kids babies. But I guess we just have to say this is "our normal".

We have certainly experienced a new normal for us. We are thankful for God's purpose in our lives. We know without a doubt God is good, all the time! This is our Avery today!
