Laughter is NOT the best medicine....

....Sierra is! My grandmother was sick last week. Her blood pressure was high. On Sunday, my mother, Sierra, and I took an unexpected trip to visit her. When we arrived she was just laying in bed. She was thrilled and surprised to see Sierra! After we got there, she started doing so much better. She was holding, talking, and singing to the baby. Lil' Bit was the best medicine for her.

I am continually amazed at how many people are praying for Sierra. I will be out shopping or something and I will run into people who ask about her and say they are praying for her. Some of these people I meet I barely know! Then there are many others who I have never met or even heard of who are praying for her. It is so heartwarming to know that so many people love her and faithfully pray for her. God is using all of your prayers. He is working so many miracles in her life. We are so blessed to have her. She is truly a priceless treasure.

Well, Sierra got a double dose of stubbornness and it is becoming quite evident. Now that she is eating from a regular bottle, we thought it would be good if Jason and my mother started feeding her also. Before, I was the one who would always feed her since I knew how to operate the special bottle. They have tried several times to feed her, but the little squirt takes a few sucks and then refuses to eat unless Mama feeds her.

March of Dimes
On Saturday we participated in the March of Dimes walk. It was a three mile walk. Jason's work, Sprint, had a team. We took the dogs and the baby. They gave her a shirt that says, "NICU Graduate."
