7 Pounds!!

Hey everyone,

Josh here. Lindsay's already in bed, so I thought I'd do a late night post. Willow's been doing good since she got her transfusion. Over the weekend she did really well nursing with Lindsay, and today she's taken every feed with the bottle. They tried using a new nipple for the bottle feedings today, and she seems to like it. Her nurse said she's pretty much just been sucking non-stop during the feeds and not having any problems. Were very hopeful this will continue. However, I don't want to get to excited yet and jinx it.

Willow hit 7 pounds today. It's a number that is hard to fathom for us. When she was born at 1 lb. 13oz. even 3 lbs. sounded big. Now she's 7 lbs. and gaining weight. Both Lindsay and her brother were 7 lbs. 1 oz. at birth. I'm not exactly sure what I was, but my mom has told me I was perfect 10's in the apgar scores. I'm sure you all already figured that out :)

Willow got her first look at the outdoors on Sunday. We walked her over to the window and looked at the pretty trees.
Don't be alarmed at the IV sticking out of her head. I guess they couldn't find a good vein in her hand, so they went to the head. Apparantly it's very common. In fact the baby right next to Willow had one as well. It looked much worse than it was for Willow. She didn't seen to mind one bit. On Sunday they took it out and it hardly even left a mark.


She's really looking like a baby lately. The brought in a swing for her to sit in. She likes it alot. It's got a bunch of flashing lights and makes some noises. However, none of that matters when your sound asleep.



Hope you all have a good week.

See ya,

Josh

SWING! Can't wait till Willow can swing in the park with all the big kids. We're psyched that the transfusion worked so well as well as changing up the nipple. Yippi, soon she will be outside.
