Open Eyes

Jimmie opened his eyes today! Both of them!! Rachael said it's really fun and different to see him with them open. He doesn't leave them open for long so she didn't get a picture, but we will . . .

He's gained another ounce. He is now 1 pound 10 ounces. He still looks so very very tiny. The few who have been in to see him have said one consistent thing. He is so much smaller than he looks in the pictures. It's pretty shocking. It's hard to really have a good point of reference in the pictures. I think you get flashes of how small he may be, but it doesn't come close to the reality.

Keep praying for his Brady moments after his feedings to go away. He actually did a lot better with that today. Rachael was grateful and said to keep praying about it.

Otherwise not much new news! I'll try to get some pictures up with him of his eyes open soon! And we really liked the idea (Allison) of taking his picture next to his puppy every month!

Rachael is doing a lot better lactation wise!! Yeah!

Thank you for your powerful prayers!



  1. How exciting! I'm sure he loves being able to see Mama and Daddy as well as hearing them. Way to go little guy!!!

    We love you!

  2. Awww...that's so good to hear! Still praying for all of you. We just realized on Sunday that Jimmie was born on Jess's bday! We were so caught up in *his* birthday, that we forgot it was hers! :-)

    Love from the Tandys

  3. Yay!!! What a wonderful day for Jimmie and his mom and dad - to see the world with his eyes!!!And it's on his 2nd week birthday, right? What a beautiful gift ;)Still praying here an praising our Father in Heaven for all the miracles. Go little man ;)

  4. I have been checking this blog regularly ,but for some reason, I just now figured out how to post! Anyway, Rachael, we are praying for Jimmy on a daily basis, and he's on our church Prayer Warriors list , too. We're so happy for you at the great strides he has made!

    Congratulations on your little fighter.
