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.

11 Months

I am 11 months

I'm really getting good at sitting up and
I can even reach for things that are close by.

I sometimes reach a little too far and end up on my stomach but
that's all good b/c I am learning how to pull with my arms to get
where I want to go. I sometimes push backwards and get caught
under furniture, I'm becoming quite adventurous.

I love my sisters and I light up whenever I see them.
I especially light up though when I see my daddy! I really
love my daddy!

I'm pretty content all the time. I like to hang out on the floor
with toys, in my highchair with some food or in my little
entertainment saucer.

I am trying and eating all sorts of different foods now. I'm not
very picky and I even ate a whole bowl of mashed up avocado and
applesauce last night.I need to make sure I am getting enough
calories so mommy usually tries to find food that has a high
calorie count.For example, I eat a lot of yogurt, cheese,
avocado, cereal and stage 3 baby meals. I also like to munch on
veggie straws, puffs and of course cheetos :) I only need to
use my feeding pump about 2 times a day. I'm able to drink about
2 ounces by mouth and the rest (6 ounces) goes through the pump.
Hopefully soonI won't need to use the pump at all but my throat
needs to heal first.

O' last thing. I am a really good sleeper. I always have been
so not a lot has changed but I usually sleep from 7-7 with 2 naps
during the day. I'm pretty awesome!
