39 weeks!

I cant believe Jaycie is almost 8 weeks old and we still have not hit her due date. It amazes me!

Jaycie is doing better on her eating. When I brought her home 9 days ago she ate every 4 hours and only 20-45 cc's. The next few days she started eating every 4 hours 70cc's. Then she moved to 60cc's every 3 1/2 hours. Towards day 5 she started eating 60'ccs every 3 hours and today? She has been a little hungry hungry hippo eating every 2- 2 1/2 hours. OINK OINK!
When she came home 9 days ago it took 40 min to finish her food. She has been getting better through the week. She eats her 2oz in about 10 min now. YAY JAYCIE! When eating she still needs to be in a certain position (laying on her side ) and the bottle to be positioned just right (so it only feels the bottom half of the nipple rather than the whole thing) She does really well eating most times... but there are times that its still difficult for her.

Until tomorrow.......
