Avery is now up to 1 cc of food every hour and weighed in today at 2 lbs! This sounds so strange to be celebrating two pounds, but we were so happy to hear the news. (Perhaps you would also have to be a NICU parent of a <2 lb baby to feel this as deeply as we do, but it’s a very significant step forward.) Quin was smiling from ear to ear.
This morning I got to give our ‘karate-kicking princess’ one of her baths (moistened wipes and drops of baby soap), while her Daddy smiled, took pictures, and paced back and forth asking, “what can I do? what can I do?” I’m so blessed to have such a feisty daughter and such a wonderful husband who lights up when asked by the nurses if he wants to change her diaper or give her a bath.
We just may, in fact, be the happiest parents on the earth to change a wet/dirty diaper…
We love and appreciate you all so very much. Please continue to pray for our baby girl, Avery, and her guardian angel, Sienna.
