Bella update and Zach pics too

First of all, thank you for all the prayers and well wishes for our little girl. She is a tough little fighter and we are very appreciative of all of the loving support that she has. Bella was released from the hospital Monday afternoon and came home on no oxygen and no breathing treatments, just an inhaler that we are instructed to use as needed. She has only needed it once since we've been home. She is also on some antibiotics to battle the pnuemonia and make sure that she fully recovers from this latest episode. You know when she has recovered when her appetite returns and boy did it ever, this morning she woke up at 530 asking for waffles. It is so cute because she wakes up and she says good morning mommy, good morning daddy as she wakes us up. Then she asks for her juice and waffle. Her vocabulary has really exploded, she is stringing together sentences and can really communicate what she wants and needs now. Here are some pics of our little princess.

Zach is just chugging along. He is growing and become so mobile so fast. He is trying to stand up already and can crawl across a room almost as fast as his sister can walk across the room. They are starting to play together and we are having to teach them to share. Zach is such a happy baby, everyone is so amazed by how much he smiles. Here are some pics of the younger big brother! I've decided that since he will likely always be bigger than her, probably by the age of 1 that he will be her younger big brother :)

One last thing to leave you with, Machel and I follow KV-Pharma stock and look for updates all the time and some interesting developments are happening. There has been a lot of pressure placed on KV-Pharma and now it looks as if the government is going to step in. The are launching several price gouging investigations but they are also apparently going to continue to allow compounding pharmacies to make similar progesterone, I assume at the previous price point of 10-20 per injection. See the following article.

Thanks for all of the love, prayers and support, may the Lord be with you all.
