Malaena-Sloan is LIVIN' IT UP!!!!

Malaena-Sloan and I go each day and walk in circles in the atrium. This is our first day without Amy and Isabel, so I sat down and held my daughter and sang Southern Gospel songs for about 30 minutes! What an awesome way to start our day!
Daddy has the touch! This is at breakfast after her second bottle today! Malaena-Sloan is lovin' her daddy!
Our first outing as a family! We walked to the Westin to see our friends from Michigan, Dave and Susie! We had a fun time and Malaena-Sloan loves looking around and getting ALL the attention!
Malaena-Sloan is squeaky clean...after her bath. She's getting used to Mama being a little rough!
Daddy feeding his girl AGAIN!!!!

Thanks for all the prayers in the healing of our daughter! She still has a little stuffiness but her APPETITE IS BACK IN FULL FORCE!!! Her caregivers told me she ate
8 ounces every 3-4 hours and the most she had eaten at a time was 4 ounces. She has eaten 6, 6 ounces bottles and 4 tablespoons of baby food. She is so happy and content. The downside to her eating schedule is she was also getting up at 2am and
4am, and as long as she is healthy, we will do what we have to do.

Malaena-Sloan's transition to us has been amazing. We just feel the love of God and HIS PRESENCE! This time for the three of us is amazing and I am so thankful! We are very ready to bring our little princess home to meet all our family and friends! Y'all are going to LOVE her and her cheeks are SO KISSABLE!
