You'd think I would have realized this a long time ago - but our computer has a video camera on it so we can take videos of Eden via our computer.... Josh took one of her today while he was feeding her and while it is not that "exciting" I thought it would be fun for you all to see her in action. Since it is on our computer - it is not so portable ... so most of our videos will be of E at home - but nonetheless - you can now (soon) see video of her. I can't to catch the giggles on video to share with you... if you aren't already in love with her - you will be after you see her laughing! 

Only problem is - I can't seem to get it uploaded. Has anyone out there uploaded videos from iMovie on a Mac? 

Well - Eden is keeping me busy this week with a whopping 8 Dr's appointments. Good news is, yesterday I took her to the office to see Dr. Jeffers and we weighed her.....

12 lbs 6oz

Okay - this may now sound like a lot, but she had gained half a pound since last week. She hadn't gained any wieght in two months - then lost a bit when she was in the hospital - so she is rockin on her weight gain! I was so excited. And a funny story I shared with Dr. Herriott today at work... you all might appreciate this as much as she did... Josh called me at work (he was concerned might I add) to tell me that Eden was crying. I asked what he was doing and he said "well, she just ate 3oz in 12 minutes and every time I take the bottle out of her mouth, she cries"....I replied, "she's hungry... thats what babies are suppose to do".... Oh it made me laugh and it also made me so thankful of this new little "problem". 

Hopefully I'll get this video thing going soon.... but I'll leave this one for Josh - I'm off to work on my ETSY site (my new addiction).

Steph: This is Silke, your mom's friend & running buddy. I have enjoyed reading about Eden on your blogs and keep checking in every couple of days to keep track of her. I am inspired by your faith and perseverance. You all are in my prayers. I can't wait to see what happens when Eden gets her hearing aids. Love, Silke

We're so glad to hear that Eden has gained some weight and that she is wanting to eat more! That is such an answer to prayer! She's such a sweet little thing!
