Our little lady is now 9 pounds and 19 inches. She’s doing quite well and we couldn’t be happier. She’s now off of her Reglan and is eating between 4 and 5 ounces each feeding. This girl can really sleep too (not that we have anything to compare her to). We feed her anywhere between 8:30 and 10pm and she will sleep until 5 or 6am typically. It’s quite nice to have the time at night!
Brady will be 5 months old next week. It’s so hard to believe five months have passed since my little 1 pound 7 ounce baby was born. They have gone by so fast. Even the time in the hospital went by fast until that last month where we were beginning to think she would be coming home soon. Now Brady is home and doing wonderfully. She still our little miracle. It’s so hard to look at her now an remember the frail baby she was 5 months ago. In 5 months she has gained almost 8 pounds and 8 inches. I used to say she has been 5 different babies since she was born. She’s gotten out of the stage where she doesn’t look like a completely different baby ever 2 weeks and that is so wonderful. I look into the same sweet face every day. Lately Brady has just been developing in ways that are so obvious to me. It’s amazing to see her grow and develop. Read the rest of this entry »
Brady is doing wonderful. I never imagined I would have this cute, growing, smiling, and happy baby. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine the good things that will come. Granted, she is my first child, so I don’t have much to go on and her start in life was not exactly a happy occasion. Read the rest of this entry »
You have to check out this video. It’s the cutest thing ever. I was working on some web stuff at my computer and Brady was next to me in her seat. I looked over and she had the biggest smile ever shining right up in my direction. I had to grab the camera. This is what I got
I couldn’t resist posting these pictures tonight. I was playing with Brady before dinner and got some great expressions from her. She is such a cutie! I didn’t want to run and get a “real” camera and risk losing these adorable expressions so I just took a few shots with the crappy camera built into my phone. Either way…
Erik put some new pictures of Brady up tonight. I hope each and every one of you will enjoy looking at them. She continues to grow and do well. If only we could get her satisfied when it comes to food. The little girl who wouldn’t take a bottle a week before she cam home can’t get enough now. She is such a different baby.

We finally have an internet connection at our new home. This week we will be putting up some new pictures and a video possibly. Life sure has been crazy with Brady home and moving at the same time. We’re all doing well and learning to adjust.
Check back soon!
Right now I am sitting in a hospital room very close to a nursery where Brady was for about a month. Instead of being in the the NICN or ISN we are now in the PSU because Brady had to have hernia’s repaired.
We are sorry we haven’t been able to update or add pictures, but like Erik said in a previous post we are internetless. We are also cableless but that doesn’t affect the blog, just my sanity at home Hopefully we’ll be up an running soon so we can update everyone on the wonderful and funny things we experience with Brady.

We still don’t have internet access at home. Hopefully Comcast will decide they want our patronage and make their way out to our house. I just wanted to update everyone. We’ll be back one day!
Hey everyone. I just wanted to give a really quick update on how things are going. We’ve been home from the hospital for 10 days now and boy have those days been interesting! We moved from our apartment into a house last Saturay and boy is it nice to have an extra 500 square feet! The downside to our move as of now is that we have no internet connection. Comcast has yet to make their way out to get us all setup. Once we’re up and running we will get some new photos and videos up so everyone can see Brady at home!
Thanks again for all of the prayers and support!
Brady Faith was brought into this world 12 weeks premature. This was a result of mommy having pre-eclampsia and there being a reverse blood flow to/from the placenta. Brady wasn't growing like she should and it would have just gotten worse. She weighed 1lb 7oz and was 11 3/4in long. To learn more about Brady and her family click here.
