    I wanted to share a few recent pics of Izabella with everyone. This week marks her one year since her coming home from NICU. She has been growing and changing so much these last few months in particular. Her weight was 4LBS 3 OZ when she came home to close to 15 LBS currently. She was a slow gainer for a while but has picked up the pace to over a pound of gains a month. She’s also eating solids three times a day. She is also off the bottle and on to sippy cups.

    She is crawling and sitting up on her own and getting into everything. Her temperament is almost always happy and laughing. Many mornings she will wake up laughing for some reason. This all while teething!!! She’s a good baby.

    This is the same kid who received multiple blood transfusions of which Watchtower taught us that they were deadly. I know better now and she is the results of that as well as how far science has taken us. Years ago this child probably wouldn’t have made it if not for the scientific achievements of many.

    two biological sisters in the cong I went to, one was skinny one was overweight (almost obese), guess which one was a preemie when born.

    Also, I've heard Al Roker say, I think he mentions it in one of his books he was a preemie also, I'm sure you remember how he looked before he lost weight, I'm not saying your daughter is going to be overweight, but when you look at the two folks I mention, you would hardly suspect them to be underweight at any time in their life. Your daughter looks great, no more worries, no need to say she's on the road to recovery because she already has.
