Well, a few weeks ago (two, to be exact) I asked for prayer for our sweet little girl. At 5 weeks, 4 days, she was weighing in at 7 pounds and 13 ounces. This put her weight in the 8th percentile.
Fabulous news! As of today (7 weeks, 4 days) she’s a “whopping” 9 pounds, 3 ounces. She’s now in the 20th percentile! That’s 1 pound, 6 ounces in just two weeks! A healthy baby needs about 1-2 pounds per month, so she’s doing great and catching right up! We’re so excited. It’s not where we want her to stay, of course, but it’s fabulous news! So thrilled that my little string bean is becoming more of a round green bean. (Hah.)
So many of you have reached out to tell me that you were praying. In fact, it was amazing how many people have contacted me by email, text, or Facebook to share their support. Some of you have even contacted our family to say “I don’t want to stress Erin out, but know we’re praying.” I’m overwhelmed at the measure of support. Thank you so much, we appreciate the prayers and know that the Lord has honored your requests for us.
Keep praying! We have another appointment in 2 weeks and hope to have great news then for continued growth. In the meantime, enjoy her Week 6 and Week 7 photos below.
