These pictures were from the hayride last weekend. Justin, Rachael and Jimmie had a great time! Jimmie loves being outside in the fresh air.

I got to spend some time with Jimmie today and he's doing good. He is still fighting this cold, but he's is handling it so well. I'm amazed!

Since the weaning attempt he has definitely been showing more interest in drinking. I saw the difference today. I had not hung out with Jimmie since before the weaning attempt so it was so good to see him again. Whenever he got hungry he wanted his bottle. It seemed like he actually connected it again to being hungry and filling his tummy. He still is not sucking efficiently, but we are hopeful that will come. Especially with more aggressive weaning again in the near future.

Jimmie grabbed hold of Rachael's shirt today while he was laying on his back. He then proceeded to pull himself into a seated position an then up to standing! Crazy! I cannot believe how strong that kid is. It's unbelievable- really! He's pushing all the way up on his hands now so that his arms are straight. It won't be long before he figures out how to get his knees under him and then watch out world, here comes Jimmie!

I'm planning/hoping to get pictures of Jimmie tomorrow in his Halloween getup. (-:

Thank you for your prayers!



  1. Praying, praying for that little man. May he continue to understand the sucking reflex and DRINK! May his family have some PEACE! Happy Weekend!

  2. he looks so cute in his little snowsuit (or whatever those things are, full body coat thing). Maddy has one and gets REALLY mad when you put it on her cause her legs are restrained! lol....I am glad to hear that he seems to be interested still. That's great. Can't wait to see the Halloween pics!

  3. Seems he's inherited that Gravitt strength! Way to go on standing up, little guy!! We're so happy that he's doing so well. We'll keep praying that things just keep getting better.

    We love you all! Happy Halloween!!
