little beauty...






It's soo fun to be with her now...she spends lots of time awake checking things out. She's got such a calm content personality. Even when the nurses and doctors are messing with her she just grunts a little here and there, she very rarely cries.

She went down a little in weight again today :( and there was debate about whether or not I could continue to nurse her or start giving her bottles supplemented with high caloric formula, but I had to fight for them to give us one more day at the nursing since every time we nurse she does a little better. Since everyone's prayers have been working miracles so far, please pray for her to gain so we can keep doing this!

Other than that she's having a good day... Room 7T20 is getting a little claustrophobic for mommy, but I cannot complain. My baby is doing so well and I get to do more and more for her. Soon enough we'll be getting some fresh air..

She is so adorable and looks so alert for just 2 weeks. I hope you can continue to nurse her. Your family is constantly on our minds and in our prayers.

Dear Tanner and Avery, you don't know me, but I feel like I know you. I'm Sister Tanner, a friend and fan of your mothers. My husband, Marsh and I live in Sao Paulo where he works as the Church's legal counsel. Through your mom we've been following you and your baby. Your mom just gave me your blog site and I am so very happy to see what a beautiful baby Bela is and hear how well she's doing. She is a miracle. You have all been in our prayers constantly for months and will continue to be for as long as you need. Love, Colleen Tanner

What a trooper! You and Bella! Avery, you and Tanner are amazing. You're daughter is beautiful and so alert! She's doing so well, and I know that part of it is the prayers and everyone's faith you've been talking about, but also in how you and Tanner have been dealing with this. She's doing amazing, and you're amazing parents, and she knows this and loves you so much. I can see it just in the pictures, how she looks at you! We're so happy she's been doing so well, and I get so excited each time I see a new post on her. (I'm keeping Bart updated as well!) Love you guys!

We are still praying for your family daily and we will continue to. I hope that you'll be able to continue nursing her.

Wow you guys have come so far! She is the cutest thing ever! It is amazing she has been through so much in her short little life, but you would never know it by looking at her. She is one special little girl. It is so great to hear she may be coming home...we will continue to pray for that. And hang in there with nursing, it sounds like she is getting it. We are so excited for your family and know the Lord has watched over you. Hang in there!!!!
