The Outfit Says It All

Thursday, May 21, 2009 - We have officially been home a week! This motherhood thing is incredible. Never in my life would I have imagined that sleep deprivation would be so rewarding. Elle is doing well - we have upped her bottle feeding from twice a day to 4 times a day. I don't know if the doctors would be ok with this - but she starts screaming about 30 minutes before she is supposed to eat so I started giving her a bottle before her tube feeding starts. She is getting better with the bottle - but it is still minimal. She is averaging about 10cc with each bottle. She acts so eager to take the bottle and every time I think she is going to finish it...but no luck yet. Hopefully it will just click with her and one day she will wake up and take her entire bottle. That would be so nice! We will keep working and praying!!
1 week down..only 5 more to go until quarantine is over!!

I love the pics, especially the third one. You and Lee will be, and already are, great parents. I love and miss you.
