A Sister For Celia

Clark's Trip to China for Tessa

New Weight Poll December 19, 2009

Happy Sisters

Tessa was back at the doctor yesterday (Thursday) and got her new weight after being home for a little more than a month. Anyone want to venture a guess as to what she weighs now? She weighed 15 pounds, 10 ounces at her last visit. I’ll post the actual weight in a day or so.

Tessa got 3 shots yesterday and boy did we hear about them last night / this morning! She was not at all happy, extremely uncomfortable, and running a temp of 103. Clark finally got her to fall asleep by lounging in the recliner with her for a looonnnggg time. Reminded us of the nights we’d spend up with Celia, trying to get her to sleep. But Tessa should be doing better today and tonight as long as we keep the tylenol or ibuprofen going. Poor thing–she has such a pathetic cry. I’ll have to remember to schedule nothing the day after her next round of shots! Celia never had any kind of reaction to shots, and she got a lot of them her first year or so. I’m sure everyone is a bit tired of hearing how different our girls are, but to us it’s fascinating and a great reminder of how God has made each of us as individuals, with great specific plans for our lives.

Today (it’s now Saturday) Tessa showed us the sign for more, one that Celia also picked up right away. Tessa was asking for more food, of course!

I added a few new pictures to the Flickr album, for anyone interested.

    Morning, Carey Family!
    I’ll bet you Tessa weighed in at 18 pounds. So sorry to hear she’s having such a hard time with the shots. My Amanda did too — Billy and Cook not so much. It’s so stressful for them and it hurts so much. I’ll say a tiny prayer for her (and you too!).
    Thinking of you all.
    Thanks for posting the photos! Celia and Tessa take beautiful pictures.
    xxoo Colleen

    Love viewing the photos of your daughters. They are so beautiful. It is an honor to “peak” into your home and see the love being poured into the hearts of Celia and Tessa. Their smiles are captivating.

    My guess on Tessa’s weight is 19.6.

    Merry Christmas!
    Cheryl and Ron
