Elli has been moved over to nursery B. That is the side where the stable babies are that are getting ready to go home. Right now we are working on teaching Elli to eat. Who knew it could be such a hard and exhausting thing to learn. She will do alright for one feeding, then she is wiped out for the rest of the day. If you wouldn't mind, we could use the extra help from all your prayers again. This is the last hurdle to get over so that we can bring Elli home. Thanks for all you have all done for us to get us to this point.

Here is Elli now. Thanksgiving day is her 3 month birthday, which makes it a little more special this year. She is 17" long and weighs just over 5 lbs. Her eye exam last week showed that her eyes are immature, but normal. Her brain ultrasound was also normal. Her bones are making steady improvements, and aren't as fragile as they were a few weeks ago. She is on low flow oxygen and is learning how to coordinate eating. She is just so darling!!!!

We barely had room for any food in our kitchen freezer, and pretty much zero space in the deep freeze. What we do have in the deep freeze was inaccessible, unless you were willing to freeze your hands off digging for something. Luckily, we can get in their now. We have 6 bags full of milk stored at 2 different places. The only problem is that the freezer is filling up fast once again. It won't be long until I need to call on our generous friends again. We sure do appreciate them!!!

This pumpkin was carved by my nephew at our annual pumpkin carving party
Bradley was a skeleton this year. He didn't love the make-up. It's too hard to remember not to rub your face with the sleeve of your shirt. One of those habits that we haven't been able to break yet. Below is the pumpkin I carved for Bradley. He wanted Frankenstein this year.
