1 Month Birthday

December 7 (PM) - Today Grady Jeremiah is a month old! He entered the world a month ago on November 7 at just 26 weeks gestational age. Thank you for praying for him over the last four weeks. I want you to see another quick photo comparison like we did a few days ago...

1 Month Old

2 pounds, 6 ounces

1 Day Old

1 pound, 15 ounces

I know those pictures are not the same poses or zoom levels, but I hope you can sense the remarkable differences in them! Now Grady Jeremiah can come out of his isolette, lay on our chests as we hold him, and breathe room air! He continues to grow and we are amazed at how well he has progressed.

We continue to be able to hold him each day. He does so well out of his isolette, and it does wonders for us to have that time with him. Yes, we theme his blankets and hats at times... Here are his recent "Auburn" and "Christmas" outings :-)

The past four weeks have been challenging. There is no question about it. It is not a journey we had expected or one for which we could ever prepare ourselves. Yet through it all we have seen God at work in so many ways. We are the recipients of His amazing grace and love. Also, we want to thank each of you "prayer warriors" for your important role in our journey and his as you continue to intercede! So on this day where we celebrate his one month birthday, we want to say thank you again to each of you.
