A few weeks ago, I told you about our friends John and Angela Keim, whose baby Lydia made her very early appearance at 30 weeks. Our family decided to hang the sweet little pink shoes we bought for her from our lights in our kitchen as a reminder to pray for her. I saw Luanna, Lydia’s Grandma last night, and she showed me these amazing pictures of Lydia:
She’s up to a little over 4lbs, and obviously getting stronger…notice how she is holding her own bottle in the second photo.
The other day when Belle and I were cleaning out her drawers, we came across a baby dress that she wore at about 6 months old. “I’ll be right back”, she charged out of the room, and returned a few minutes later. I didn’t give it a second thought until I came downstairs awhile later, and found this:
The dress definitely adds emphasis to the shoe-prayer reminder. I think Lydia is getting lots of extra prayers because of Belle’s concern for her. Belle emphasized that the dress should be Lydia’s now, once she gets big enough to fit into it. Keep growing strong Lydia! Lots of people are praying and cheering you on.
