Leaps and Bounds!

Jaycie gained another 40grams and is now at her birth weight again. 3lbs 13oz. She is doing great. The doctors decided there was no reason to do an echo right now since her past 4 rounds there was no murmur heard. They arent going to worry about an ultrasound of the head because she is showing NO signs of a brain bleed.

She got her first bath last night. I wasnt there, BUT NICU got pictures for me. We are able to leave a disposable camera with her name on it, in her isolette so they can capture special moments when mommy cant be there. She is no longer on a temp monitor and maintains her own heat. She has done this all night EVEN after a bath. They are talking about moving her into an open bed! YAY!!

She is still tolerating her feeds well and she got to "nurse" a bit last night. She was nice and alert and after 3min of REAL nursing she was getting tired, and after an additional 4 min of kinda playing she was sound asleep. So... she does have some work to do on feeds, but thats all to come.

Daddy is going in today and he is going to hold her for the first time. Ill be sure to post pictures of that this evening!

Thank you for all your prayers and support. You guys are all so special to us to be praying for our little girl. Thank you!
