One Week Old!

Praise the Lord for one week of LIFE. 
He has brought our Evelyn Grace through her first 7 days and we have seen remarkable changes and progress in just those seven long short days.
Hours before birth, last pregnancy picture!
Day 1:

Day 2:
Day 3:
Mama's first visit
Day 4:
Saying good bye before we discharge
Day 5:
More alert
Day 6:

No more ventilator!!!
Day 7:
First pacifier, no oxygen
At one week old Evelyn Grace's biggest life accomplishment has been breathing on her own!  For many babies we take that for granted but not this time....Prasie the Lord for her lungs beginning to function and her sweet little breaths of life.  Today she is completely off of oxygen, no assistance at all.  They said her blood oxygenation levels look good but her breathing is quite rapid so they will possibly put her back on the oxygen later today to help with that. 
Happy One Week Evelyn Grace!
We love you more than words can say.


  1. May the God of peace and healing look down upon her with His favor.
    love you guys and continuing to pray with you.

  2. Oh what a perfect wonderful summary full of emotions rocking the journey to life outside the womb. Honest terror and honest hope, honest anguish and honest joy. Thank you for sharing what must have felt somewhat lonely and for expressing your faith that you are not alone. The outpouring of love, prayers, support, care, concern, tears and practical help has been comforting when we are so far away. Stay strong! He give what you need each day. These pictures of Evelyn without the ventilator, with a pacifier, drinking mama's milk; each milestone is precious beyond words! We love you and are praying for you and for the medical team!

  3. I tear up with joy every time a new progress has been accomplished. Like wow! Waytago Evelyn Grace! Praising God for the many blessings He has shown and given. Thank You Lord! Thank You Lord for the great works of the medical team. And Thank You too Lord, for the great momma, daddy and lil' brother Caleb! HUGS! To God be the Glory! As always, my prayers continue. a. norma
