Little Lily is almost a month old!! She is doing really well and is gaining weight almost daily. She's up to 4 lb. 4 oz. now!!
She has graduated from the incubator to an open crib. That's big, that means she can maintain her own body temperature now instead of the incubator keeping her warm. She still has a little bit of oxygen and a feeding tube but she is moving up to eating from a bottle 3 times a day. She is doing pretty well with it! She is so sweet and tiny. Even though she's over 4 lbs. now she still looks so "mini" as Em calls her! They have let us wheel her down to the glass doors 3 times so Em could see her sister
You can see how small she is next to Jason's hands and from the crib, she's wrapped up in the pink blanket. We can hold her for a little longer now, instead of 15 minutes a day, sometimes for an hour. That's one of the hardest things in this situation, the lack of contact with your baby. She still sleeps a lot but it's hard to be away from her so much. We are just grateful that she is doing so well, growing so quickly and learning to eat on her own! She really has made a ton of progress.
