Rory had her 6 month well baby checkup today! It was during her naptime so she was a little grumpy, but she did great. She cried for maybe 3 seconds after her shots.
Andy got to go with me for the first time today and it made it much easier!
She weighs 17 lbs and is 26 1/2 inches long. She’s in the 75th percentile for both. The doctor said she was growing perfectly!
Unfortunately, not all babies are perfectly heathly. I’m calling on all of my friends, family, and others who read this blog to PLEASE pray with me for a dear friend, Rachel Brown Brake. She is 38 weeks pregnant and just found out that her sweet baby, Weston, has serious heart problems. This is what she posted on facebook:
“He has a serious heart defect that will be critical when born. Left side is not working right. He will need open heart asap but we will be at Children’s in ATL (great hands). We are waiting to hear when they want to take him. Thank God we found it now! My heart is broken and this pain hurts beyond words. He is a fighter and we must have hope.”
And we CAN have hope! God is the ultimate healer, as we all know, and I am asking for y’all to pray for God to heal him and show His work to all of those who know Weston in his life. And I’m also asking for peace, patience, strength, and wisdom for Rachel and her husband Eric as they embark on this journey. I will keep everyone updated on baby Weston. Thank you for your prayers- I know Rachel will feel them all around her.
