She was born exactly a month ago right about now. Thanks!

She had a busy morning with a bunch of tests so she celebrated by yawning and stretching, making a face and conking out cold.

Did I mention how cute she was yet?

ok already I keep meaning to do it!!

Here she is giving a thumbs up! Thats my hand, she was about 2-3 weeks old

Here is dh palming her. She is about a week old here. His hands are not really that huge just for the record...she was still on the vent at this point. She also does not have any cloth diapers that fit yet!

And here is her big sister in her scrubs like the nurses

We will have more this week since we have now been able to hold her so we will have more of those!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Keep growing strong little one....love the pics! Do let me know if you need help finding some preemie diapers. If your interested I can try making you some. I have the very baby pattern and supposedly the newborn works for preemie sizes...just need to know her measurements. I have LOTS of cute girly fabric that I can no longer use...so let me know when you get the chance

Thanks for sharing the pics - what a little cutie!

ETA: cloth diaper info
For cloth diapers have you tried a preemie cover with a cloth wipe, if preemie CPFs are too big? The Preemie Proraps say they fit 2-6 lbs I believe? Happy Heiny's also makes doll diapers, which don't have a pocket, they are just like a fleece lined velcro closing cover and are very small. You could put a cloth wipe or something in it for absorbency. Just some suggestions if you wanted to try to get her in cloth.

Happy Birthday Maggie! (A day late, sorry)

She's beautiful! All that dark hair, just like her big sis and mama. She looks strong and determined (hmmm, wonder where she got those traits from?)

It was good to see you today! Give Maggie a kiss and squeeze from her aunties at LLL.

Thanks Marcy!
I might just cut some prefolds in half and sew the seam to start. I have a few fbnz coming in xs which she could grow into!
