Can you believe it? She is 8 pounds today! I am so very excited with how well Hope has done at home. She is consistently drinking 3 ounces every 3-4 hours and sometimes she will take almost 4 ounces. I know...when she gets older she will wish that it took weeks to gain a pound...rather than the 5 minutes it takes me after I eat a big meal.
"Time passes quickly. Many parents say that it seems like yesterday that their children were born. Now those children are grown, perhaps with children of their own. “Where did the years go?” they ask. We cannot call back time that is past, we cannot stop time that now is, and we cannot experience the future in our present state. Time is a gift, a treasure not to be put aside for the future but to be used wisely in the present."
-Thomas S. Monson
