Tugging at my heart and my knitting needles?

When my daughter sent me the first picture of her baby, it was this image......a foot.....my heart melted.......so sweet!
This is the photo she sent yesterday......do you think Jack is trying to tell Gramma something? Gramma, look at my foot, it needs something to keep it warm!!!! My heart is so full of love for this little guy, he is a trooper.......I know that all the love and prayers that you have all sent (I am so overwhelmed) have been heard and that God is watching over him and making him stronger everyday! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and Jack's foot........
So this is the little acorn sacque I knit for Jack. It might be sometime before he can wear it but as I knit each stitch, I thanked the Lord for my wonderful friends in Blogland who have blessed my life and continue to do so........I will get to each and everyone of you......and until then....
(((((((HUGS)))))))))

Margaret- I have no doubts that Baby Jack is going to thrive and grow stronger each day. These little babes are such fighters- they amaze me every day. Prayers for Jack continue and for his worried parents ( and Grandma). I am making a little something for your precious babe. Shall I send it to you or to his parents address? Will you please email me and let me know. It is for him now while he is in the NICU.

Love,
Vicki

Honey I feel so badly that I did not know about your precious Jack. He is going to be fine with all the prayers being lifted for him.
I of course will be sending them immediately for such a precious little darling.
Please forgive me for not coming by earlier.
Love and prayers to you dear friend

What a sweet, sweet picture Margaret! I'm praying for baby Jack. I have been thinking of you.
We went through a similar thing four years ago when our sweet Ella was born.(my daughter Season's baby) She was in the hospital for six weeks because she was born very sick with an enlarged and diseased liver. It is so hard to live through this, but Ella is now 4 years old, and while she is tiny, she is a firecracker.
I'm praying for you too gram.
hugs...

That little foot.....
I continue to pray for wee Jack as I go to sleep at night, and for the new-born grand nephew of a dear friend - both wee boys are fighters.

Just finding out about your grandson sweetie, I am praying for you all and for Jack to keep up his fighting spirit, he is already a very handsome little guy isn't he?
God bless you all...

Oh Margaret...I touched little Jack's foot in this pic with my hand and prayed for him...and as I did tears rolled down my face...I pray he will pull through and become the strong little boy and man he's meant to be. I don't know if I told you before but my grandfather's name was Jackson. I never met him...he died before I was born. I'm BELIEVING little Jack is going to live a long loving and beautiful life so all of you can enjoy the little guy. His foot is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL baby foot I've every seen. You are BLESSED!!! xoxo ~CC Catherine

Oh Mags, I had no idea! I have been so wrapped up in mundane stuff, that I did not keep up with blogland. I am so sorry to hear of all, that the little guy has to go through and all of you too.
He looks like a fighter and my prayers are with you.
Keep knitting...keep knitting...I think he will need little sweaters soon too.
I wish you and your family a blessed and happy Christmas, with hope and joy.
May the new year bring you health and happiness.
Warm hugs,
Evi

Hi There Jack! I see you're doing great and seeing all the goodness in this world. Thanks for hanging in there, you make us all better people! I had a little boy just like you and he is now a daddy of two. You have lots of prayers being said for you and your family.
God bless you.
