We got Maddie this bed from Petsmart yesterday. We needed more room in our kitchen due to all of the holiday gatherings we will be having, starting with the women's meeting last night. Working around a twin mattress laying in there just wasn't working too well as far as having people over. This mattress is about the size of a baby crib mattress.

Of course her place of choice to lay is our bed however being that she's not well enough to jump up there yet, or jump off, she can't be on there right now.

We love her and are so blessed that our baby is still with us. Thanks for your prayers.

(God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no
