You know when your water breaks, you're going to have a baby. It could be in an hour or in 3 days, but it's going to happen. And when that baby starts babbling, talking is not far behind. So Annie has added quite a few new sounds to her repetoire in the last few days. Ba, va, the--as in the "th" sound--and some others that I forget now.

Brother Jack was complementing her yesterday on the good job she was doing, and she repeated back, "jog," I guess for the word "job." These things are happening, and we keep thinking, "Did she really do that, or is it just our imagination??"

Eating is still slow, but she ate some Cheetos yesterday--one of the four basic food colors. She also tried some scrambled eggs tonight, but since they don't melt in her mouth but kind of collect in the back of her throat, we almost saw them (and everything else in her stomach) again. Almost.

BTW-the Mic-Key is working great. Different, but good.

Peter-kisses back to you, too. Maurita--hugs to E & L. Rebecca--see you in a few. Sue, Susan, & Su--thanks for your cheers! Pam & Terri--we'll be calling you guys if the Mic-key malfunctions. Gretchen--you'll bring the pizza, right?


Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
"The LORD has done great things for them." Psalm 126:2

hmmmm I thought you went off the keto diet weeks ago when she was having all the seizures again, but you just said that you have 3 weeks to go until she can have any carbs she wants - what did I miss?

The wean takes FOR-ever. I think we have about a week or so to go, and then we'll be off.

Annie,Annie....I had a dream about you last night. You stood up and repeated a phrase that your mom was saying to you. Just like you did with Jack this week! And yes, you stood up by yourself and took several steps to was a most wonderful dream! Let it be so Lord!

I love you!!

Thank you SO much for sharing that, Vickie. I want it to be so too--we'll have to write this down--God DOES speak to us through dreams!

Love, Jean (and Annie)
