Random Picture Challenge 4.0

Here's the 44th picture from November 2007's folder, as challenged by 4 little men and girly twins:



A slightly goofy close-up of our Baby A. She's walking now!! It's so cute.

It's ironic now to think about how fragile she was (weighed 2 pounds at birth) and how easy it was to fear for her survival in 2007, and yet she's been perfectly fine. Now diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and still a tiny, quiet little toddler...but healthy (and spared the epidemic because she lives at CDA III)!


And a few pictures before:

My sister Heather cared for her full time once she was released from the hospital weighing barely 6 pounds. I've missed my other two sisters this week.... Wonder when I'll get to see them again.

On another note, it feels good to be doing something "normal" again....

She's beautiful and that first picture is adorable, I love closeups when they're babies, their little faces are so precious!

Do you know how bad I NEED to hold a BABY! It's killing me!

Heather said...

I took that goofy picture thank you very much! (it's so difficult when they're so young...) I didn't know ya'll were suspecting FAS. Maybe it will be mild, you don't know what's preemie and want's FAS.

Yeah, I agree with Denise- make me desperate for a baby! It wouldn't be so bad if your babies weren't so cute.

Jennifer Thompson said...

Yes, they are cuties.

Sorry Denise!! I miss holding them if I'm gone one day, so I feel for ya...

I wondered if you had taken that picture, H. There are lots of cute ones from that photo session! Hey, why don't you just come back to Bolivia and I'll set you up with babies!! However many you want! You know I will, too. ;-)

Hey, I'd like an update on J going home with his dad! I know things have been CRAZY but I'd love to know how that whole situation is going...

Jessie said...
