Annabelle is now at a healthy weight for her size...41 pounds! We put about 13 pounds on her. She eats wonderfully so long as I make what she likes. :)

Right now I am making  between 6-8 different meals a day. One breakfast for Amanda, one for Annabelle, one for Keegan...repeat for lunchtime and dinner (I get help from Todd for dinner). I also have to sit down to feed Amanda and Annabelle six times a day. Needless to say, I spend most of my day in the kitchen.

Please pray for Annabelle. My sweetie keeps getting ear infections. Two since she's been home. Right now she has ear infections in both ears. The doctor seems to think her teeth might have something to do with it. She's taking antibiotics and is scheduled for next Thursday to have her teeth completely fixed. Praise God! We saw the dentist today and he couldn't really get a look inside her mouth but saw enough to know they are nasty.

Annabelle will go under general anesthesia to have all her dental work done. At the same time an ENT will look in her ears to determine the exact cause of her ear infections. If needed he will place tubes.

That's all for now. Thank you for your prayers.


  1. It makes sense that if her teeth are infected, those nasty germs could go right into those eustachian tubes. Poor baby, poor mama!I'll keep you all in my prayers on Thursday.

  2. Wow...13 pounds?? Way to go Mama and Annabelle!

    Praying for her teeth and ears.

  3. So happy to hear that she is eating well!

  4. Haha. You should call her Bananabelle for a nickname. =) I've been praying for the kids in her former orphanage and hope they get home soon...

    1. I love it! You just gave our girl her new nickname. :) Your prayers for the children are greatly needed. Please continue. We left behind so many, too many and they all are so precious.

  5. How did her teeth procedure go? I hope it will help her ears as well as her mouth.
