Abigail has been chattering for a long time. Only recently has she actually begun to say identifiable words. Her first word was "Aidan" - or perhaps more accurately "Aaaaaain" - but still directed at or about him. Then a few days ago she started "Da-da-da-da-da", especially when I would leave for work or when I came home at night.

Only tonight did she say "Mum-mum", but then she has been delirious with a terrible cold and a touch of fever. It may be a fluke.

She is very poorly and hasn't slept for the last two nights, a condition that seems to be going around the blogosphere. I almost hate mentioning it, as if I were soliciting your prayer time away from much more urgent needs.

May God have mercy on Abigail and all of you as you care for her. May He put His cool and comforting hand upon her and heal. And David...a sick child is an urgent need! :-) You are all in my prayers.
