Christmas Shopping here we come (yes Ryan is SOOOOO excited to go!)

So excited to get out of the house just Ryan and I this morning. (Now if only he would stop trying to snooze me, and actually get up so we can go!)

I am impressed by Mallory's eating habits. I used to get soooo frustrated at her for not eating much, she seriously only ate 1.5 ounces most meals (at 8 weeks old) this is one of the major red flags that I had. I thought she had reflux or colic. She got up every 1-2 hours to eat, during the day it was more like 45 minutes. I now know it was because she had a baseball size tumor pressing up against her stomach. She went from 1.5 ounces to 3 ounces almost right away after the surgery, now she's up to 4.5 ounces!

She was always a healthy weight but thats because she was eating round the clock, all the time. She had just started to lose a little weight 2 weeks prior to us finding out she had cancer. She is almost back up to 12 pounds again and we are adding rice cereal to her bottles to get her a little bit more plump before chemo. They will be increasing the concentration (Mally is on liquid formula) if she is not eating enough.

(This is Jillian at the same age)

(our little beans look SOOO much alike!!!)

Miss Jillypie has a runny nose now too. Dear life, CAN WE CATCH A BREAK PLEASE?

I am still waiting for Ryan to get in the shower, that whole "girls take longer than boys" to get ready, is NOT true in this house! I am always running downstairs and telling him to hurry up, get in the shower, stop playing on the computer, I really should record a typical morning in our house. I'm sure most people would find it highly amusing.


  1. I am very happy to hear that she is doing great! I will keep praying for your family!!!
