Lucie Update- Feb 8, 2015

Ahhhhhhhh so we meet again!

This time not with a 1370 gram baby but a whopping 1415 gram baby! That's right, sweet LUCIE PIE OH MY is roughly a 100 grams away from DOUBLING her birth weight. Lucille is setting goals and CRUSHING them! Oh, fun fact they start considering putting babies in "cribs" at 1800 grams. I know, crazily shocking, but lets close your mouth... it only looks cute on babies, TRUST me!.. I know ;) (see pic below). OK, let's stay focused people! There are still other milestones and "check points" along the way other than weight that factor into the "crib" decision, but I just wanted to share that info.  We will let you know when they are actually considering putting Lucie in a crib so that we don't all get ahead of ourselves. So... to summarize: Baby's gaining weight, baby's not going into crib right now... happy about fat baby... still taking it one day at a time!

Please continue to pray for Lucie-Lyn's brain bleeds, she will be having her next sonogram this week and we pray that they will soon be resolved. Not only that, but that there will be no long-term impacts (which wouldn't necessarily present themselves until she's a little older).

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. Your encuraging comments, emails and letters have been so huge to us in this time. We are continually humbled and blessed to know each and every one of you. I hope you all have had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.

We are so blessed to call you family.

Love,                                                                                                                                               Los Hicksons


Our little bean stalk!


Our sweet girl, sleeping because she's so tired from all of her awesome growing!!
