Her First Foods

Mama gave Gabriella a bottle with water... she needs to develop her mouth muscles to help her with her speech. Plus, it allows us to bond. She could not suck the bottle though for quite some time. We tried a cup as well, just to get liquids into her.

Her temperature was 101.6. We prayed over her, got liquids into her and stuck to the BRAT diet today: Banana, plain white rice, organic apple chips, and organic cheerio type cereals. It all worked. By the time she went to bed, her temperature was normal.

We decided not to give her any Tylenol. We really felt the diet and prayer would work for her this time... and, wanted her little body to fight whatever it was... off.

Later, we added some Univera Essentials. This product will get all the vitamins, minerals, protein, and nutrition her body needs. We call this, "juice." She would point to the one she wanted.

I really believe God is giving her a supernatural understanding of English words. She has picked up on EVERYTHING I have said... sometimes even repeating it.
