Well I spent the better half of the day trying to get a good picture of Mia smiling. She smiled A LOT, and I have A LOT of pictures of the corner of her mouth. The nurse told me that she got her to laugh today... I'm not quite sure I believe her ;-)
It has been a wonderful day! Mia took the bottle TWICE- and ate it up. She loved it! It is so soothing for me to feed my baby! This was her face after the yummy milk. Poor thing has been waiting so long for someone to feed her.
We took a stroll back down to the CICU to show all the nurses just how big we are. I have to say it takes coordination to hold her the way she needs to be held, and to hold a mask over her face. Everyone was so pleased to see her without any connections. That's right! They hep locked her central line. Now we just have the feeding tube! Love it!
We got a great surprise tonight- DADDY! I told John how much she was smiling today- and he couldn't resist coming to see his baby girl. It is always fun to see him walk in the door when I am not expecting him!
We will be on the floor tomorrow- and I can have my cell phone ON- yay for me- so everyone who has called this past week and I haven't returned your calls- I can answer now!
