A Mother's Love

Yesterday was a good, calm day. Being able to rest my mind was an incredible blessing while Magdalena rested all day. She was tired from the day before, which kept her sleeping most of the day, but a few times in the day she would keep her eyes wide open for about an hour. It was sweet as though she were talking with me. Her little mannerisms let me know her better like poking her lips out at me or giving me a little sligh grin. I did not bottle feed her all day in hopes of preserving any little bit of energy she should have. Still at the end of the day Magdalena only had her heart rate drop once in the day, and it was still a little episode. She is just SO beautiful, and I love her so much!

I am hoping to add more to this later, but I did want to share Magdalena's good day....and possibly more pictures!

  1. I'm so happy that you have these moments, Julie. Life is fleeting, for all of us; we just pretend it isn't. Only in Christ can we really be "healthy". I love you guys and continue to pray for you. With Love, Kristin

  3. We have continued to pray daily and several times throughout the day for y'all. I'm so thankful for your sweet moments with Magdalena. What a blessing she has been to all of us as God uses her to challenge us to consider each moment that we live and breath and enjoy with our loved ones, friends, coworkers, etc. as a miracle, and one that is soveriegnly administered by the Father. Praise be to God. And thank you again for sharing Magdalena, and yourselves, with us.
