Tricks And Treats

Tricks Or Treats?? All of you awesome people get both here:

Jimmie's trick: This is a short video clip of Jimmie blowing raspberries Halloween night.

Jimmie hangs with Ma and Pa (Jay and Andrea- Rachael's parents) on Sunday mornings so Rod, Kathy, Rachael and Justin can attend church together. Rachael is being even more protective now that we are in the middle of RSV and Flu season.

Pa sounds like he sat on a whoopee cushion or something. Jimmie in true little boy fashion thinks it's funny. The treat? His dimple and his giggle!

Remember that video of Jimmie lifting his head and turning it when he was not even 2 lbs and not quite 1 month old? It was this post, "Small But Mighty" ! This little boy is SO STRONG. Speaking of tricks and treats, here's another trick Jimmie loves to perform.

A *special* treat:

Jimmie without the NG tube! Look at that beautiful face.

Last but DEFINITELY not least, a trick:

Jimmie has 3 times in the last 3 days sucked 40mls at one time, from a bottle!!! That is a very special trick Jimmie! This even while still recovering from a cold and with the NG! Go Jimmie go!

Jimmie has an appointment with Dr. H. tomorrow. They will discuss when to remove the NG and start weaning again in earnest.

Now you have all had your serving of tricks and treats for the day! (-:

I know I know, Halloween is over. I just got that memo.

Thank you for your prayers!



  1. Thank you for faithfully continuing the updates -we are truly blessed to receive them and be able to pray accordingly! There are just so many things to praise God for regarding Jimmie! We will continue in prayer for all of you!

  2. Yay on the eating!! Way to go Jimmie!!

    Thanks for posting the videos. How adorable! It's great to see him in action. It's great to see pictures without the tube in, too! We can't wait until it's gone for good.

    We love you all!!!!

  3. Look at those adorable dimples ! You guys are all in my prayers...

  4. Thank you for posting all of those wonderful pictures and comments, Amber. Plus, I loved seeing the Halloween pictures of my shortest friends Cole and McKenna, whom I miss so much! I just want to do some kissin' and huggin' of kids! I am looking forward to do some of it, hopefully to all three of them over Christmas break (mine!)

    Love you guys.
