26 days old

Joshua was weighed today and gained 5 oz. He now weighs 6 lbs. 9 oz. Please continue to pray for him. He should be at least 8 to 9 lbs. at one month (he turns one month on Friday!).

Dearest Christa,
My girls and I have grown to know you and your family through your mother's book "Raising Maidens of Virtue". I am usually not the type to comment, but feel lead to do so this time. My youngest daughter also had the same start as your little Joshua, and I would like to share with you. God puts us through different situations so that we can share with others who are going through them too, and that is my hearts cry in writing to you! Please email if you would like and know that we are praying for you and your little Joshua!

Awww poor bitty baby!! I hope he starts gaining soon. Mom had some trouble with two of hers not gaining like they should and ended up supplementing some formula until they got going. I will pray for you and for Joshua to start eating more!!! :)

Thank you all for your prayers! Joshua is slowly gaining the weight he needs to gain!


Yes, I do plan on coming up the end of May and staying a week or two with the family! I am looking forward to taking pictures of all the Aunties holding their first nephew! He can not wait to meet you! Love you and tell everyone that I love them too!
