Oh…and Happy Christmas Eve too. =)

Ella has been running a good streak for awhile now. She’s sleeping pretty solid through the night (only waking up a couple of times), her heart rate and saturations are in check, and clinically she’s quite the happy child.

Her food density was increased to 26k/cal starting today, and she’s tolerated all the feeds without issue (Praise God!).

In preparation for Christmas day, Grandma gave our sweet little Bun a hair cut. She looks so cute with her new hairdo.

We also messed up the kitchen pretty good making some holiday cookies. Most turned out well, but we botched the fudge when we doubled the amount of chocolate chips by mistake (doh!). Very happy to report that this is the most dramatic item of the day.

Oh, it’s so good to be home and not in the hospital. We know there’s always a possibility of Ella going back, but we’re very content to be where we are for the holidays.

Celebrating our sweet girl and the birth of our Savior!

Happy 17 Months Ella, and Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you have a wonderful Christ filled day tomorrow. I’m so excited Ella is tolerating the 26 kcal food without incident. Such an answer to so many prayers!

Love you all.

Ella, A new haircut and Grandma what a nice combo for Christmas. I am at work and watching for “Santa Claus” he hasn’t shown up yet but he is on the way.

Happy 17th month birthday and Merry Christmas Ella! You look wonderful! Hope the Wests have a very merry and blessed Christmas. I prayed for you today – as always – and am looking forward with expectation to the great strides forward I’m sure Ella will be taking in the next year. So happy to hear that she has been doing so well lately. God does answer prayer.
