GREAT WEEKEND

Witt had a great weekend...a very normal 3 week old weekend! The really normal part is he sometimes likes to stay awake at night and sleep when he should be eating! He is now taking on average a little over 3 ounces. He takes a bottle which is great except it means double duty for Melanie. She feeds him and pumps every 3-4 hours. Last night our little man decided to stay awake the entire time between the 1am and 4am feeding. I stepped in (what a blessing for me!) around 3 to help Mel. Witt didn't go to sleep until 5ish. He and mom are now sleeping. It is indescribable to have to deal with these normal issues!!!

Melanie and Austan go Texas Childrens today for genetic testing on the 2 of them. It needs to be determined if this was just something that happened to Witt's chromosome 1 or if it was actually "inherited" from one of his parents. Once again I am asking God change chromosomes...that even if Melanie or Austan had a chromosomal issue that God just fix it! He can, you know...He is able...I believe He did this in Witt...Glory!!

What a blessing to be able to step in and have some precious middle of the night time with your Witt. I know Mel truly appreciates and I KNOW that grandmas love that special time! Prayed that God make any chromosomal issues dissapear!
