PAK sorry for typos.... thought some levity might be in order for thoswe of you who are still counting down the days

lilah and family are doing well. she is now 6lbs 1oz and 20in long. she's 9 weeks old and was due 6/7 (for anyone that missed my fun...).

since spending 7 long weeks in the NICU, I/we have:
-graduated and come home
-gained about an oz a day avg.
-stopped spending so much money on gas (har har)
-graduated from the eye exams until she is 1
-graduated from the cardiologist (forever)
-been out to the store having fun
-told one person to not touch her
-asked two nurses to wash their hands
-become intimately acquainted with this silly breastpump
-graduated from preemie sizes to newborn sizes!

it sounds weird, but i think she is working on holding her head up. she sleeps well and has a sweet little personality. i'm really enjoying singing to her and snuggling. it's like we're finally getting to be a team, learning about each other instead of visiting all the time. MUCH NICER.

OH!!!! this is the great part. she likes to comfort nurse after her 10pm feed. night before last, she was nnursing and i actually saw a drop of milk running down her cheek!! her face was all wet and she was happily sucking. i was even able to hand express a little. that's a big milestone.

(sorry no new pictures- but she is a cute little piggy)

Married to my best friend, expecting #1 6/09. Little angel came early- 4/10/09, 2lbs 5oz. Lilah Grace:

Wow, she's really catching up! Great job! :

Isn't it so nice to actually be able to do whatever you want with YOUR baby and not feel like the hospital owns her?
