We created this blog to help us document the story of Malia starting at 29 weeks in utero. There have been and continue to be struggles for Malia and for us. It is evident to us, as you will see, that the power of prayer is mighty and God does love us and hear our prayers. We welcome and invite you to follow along with us. Though lengthy, start from the bottom to get the entire story so far.

All bottles!

Malia has made huge gains this past week in the feeding department. She has not needed the pump for a whole week. She is taking all her feedings by bottle!!! I waited a whole week to post this in fear that it wouldn't last but she is doing great. She was doing 6 feedings a day (100ml's at a time) but dropped one feeding last week and is drinking 120mls 5x a day of thickened milk. She also is rolling over from her back to her tummy. A huge developemental milestone proving that she is developing right on target. Praise God! She is enjoying playing with anything she can get her hands on as well as putting everything in her mouth.
