OMG, My hands are HUGE!

We just got back from a great day at the NICU.  When we got there Coraline was dressed in her snazzy zebra striped outfit, provided by soon-to-be mother herself, Amanda.  It was a a tad ginormous on her, which is weird because it turns out she is pretty ginormous herself these days.  I’ll get to that in a minute.

We got to hold her for a bit.

She was full of hilarious faces, which included super wide eyes and fish mouth.  She also seemed amazed at her own hands.

I’m pretty sure she might have even given her Dad a little smile.  Now, I am not naive enough to think that she knows what smiling is, or why or when you should smile.  But she was using the right muscles!

After we had our nice visit we had bath time, where once again, she did really well.  She seems to love cleanliness.  After her bath she got snuggled up in a new clean onesie.

And got weighed.

You read that right, folks.  She is now 3 lbs 14 oz.  She is 2 oz. away from 4 lbs and is only 30 grams away from getting out of her isolette!

She also had a great day with her breathing.  She was down on her O2 5% less than what she required yesterday.  That is awesome.  Her NP thinks that they’ll start to wean her pressure very soon to see how she handles it.  She had one brady while we were there and it was very quick.  She was going back up before I even heard the alarm go off.

Sorry for any fuzzy pictures from today’s post.  These were all taken on cell phones.  Not the best.
