5.10.08 Stepdown Unit!!!

First of all Im not sure if I will have time to post an update tomorrow or not but I wanted to wish a Happy Mothers day to everybody!!!

My conversation with the nurse this morning went something like this:

Me: Im calling to check on her
Her: She is fine... She is doing good
Me: Has anything changed?
Her: No. No changes
Me: Ok....
Her: She is going to stepdown..

HELLO!!!!!! Thats a CHANGE!!!!!

But Woohoo! She moved.. We are one step closer to going home. Her weight last night was 1440. She pulled her TPT tube out today so they fed her through her OG and she has been tolerating it all fine. They are FINALLY (as of yesterday) adding breastmilk back to her feeds. Hopefully soon she will start to nipple. They have notes saying I want to be there when they do the first one so you betcha if they do it without me Ill be posting a big rant about that..

On to the fun stuff

Her new home:

After the move:


And I got to hold her!!


And Alos birthday is coming up (on the 18th).. He will be 3 years old! Can you believe it??? Anywho I am not getting him any toys for his birthday.. None at all... Horrible huh? Instead Ive just been getting him some summer clothes and Im going to get him some new diapers... Here is a cover Im working on for the diapers... I will post finished pictures later but I thought that it was pretty sad I had to use tape to hold it on.. (And I didnt even realize it was on crooked until I had already sewn half of it on!)

Happy Mother's Day, Khourtniey =)
No change?? I HOPE she was just kidding to really throw you off and surprise you for Mother's Day, lol. What a wonderful gift. =) Go lil Aybra!
You probably don't remember me but I used to post on P-Chat. But I started following your blog when I found out through PC that you had a new baby, and I just wanted to tell you how in awe I am of you as a mom. You really put most mothers to shame, including myself, lol. You are an inspiration, and I thought you should know that, but you probably already do. ;-)
Warmest wishes and continued prayers and positive thoughts for your beautiful little girl's continued progress and improving health.
