I wanted to start this as a place to update everyone, add pictures, share my thoughts, etc. I hope everyone doesn't mind. If it needs to be moved to a private place, I will certainly comply. Eventually I will post my bed rest stories leading up to my birthing story but for now I am just going to post pictures.
- My favorite thing to do with Kailey is called Kangaroo Care. It is where you strip down and you hold your baby skin-to-skin. It helps the baby's growth development and to build that bond of course.
- My favorite thing to watch on her is her hands. They are SO tiny but just like ours and I find that so fascinating how she moves them around and she has such long fingers. She loves, loves, to sleep with her hands in many different positions. But most of all I love holding her hand and feeling her squeeze my finger when she hears my voice
- Another great highlight of my day is when my baby girl opens her eyes and looks at me. When she was born 10 days ago her left eye was still fused together. Look at her now!
- And here is Kailey doing what she does best and doing what she needs...
Today is Kailey's 1st Holiday! She is also 28 weeks today! YAY!! So a few good things and a few not so good things. First I'll start with the good things. She is off her C-pap!!
Yahoo!! She is also doing VERY well off the c-pap. She is known as the "Superstar" of the NICU which of course gives me some pride in my heart.
Not so good thing, Kailey had an ultrasound done on her brain and she has an atypical brain bleed in her thalmus. We are hoping and praying that this goes away miraculously or that the affects of this bleed is very minimal. Something new to pray for!
Other than that, she is just growing away! She gained 23 grams in the last 24 hours so she is on her way to gaining back to what she weighed at birth. Right now she is 1lb. 11.5 oz. and still 13 in. long.
