Leah had a long day full of fun and excitement. She had lots of visitors, and she has some cool things to tell you, the biggest of which is that our BabyBug FINALLY reached 4 lbs! Or 4 lbs, 1 oz to be exact. It doesn’t really mean anything medically; Mandy and I just wanted to see her get out of the 3 lb range. Good girl!
BabyGirl also wore her very first clothes today! It just kind of came out of the blue; she was a little bit cold with her isolette constantly open, so the nurse put her in a little shirt. A very little shirt. And she still swam in it. See the picture below.
Leah also had visits from Aunti Staci (who taught her the art of taking selfies), her Gran (Mandy’s mom), and Mandy’s cousins Beth and Brian along with their daughter, “Auntie Erin,” who is surely already planning a most awesome wardrobe collection for Leah to wear once she gets sprung from this joint.
Leah also spent a longer time outside the isolette than ever before! I kangaroo-held her for over an hour earlier today, and Mandy did the same for nearly an hour this afternoon. Her oxygen level fell below 90% a couple of times, but she self-corrected and even more importantly, she didn’t turn blue once! Good girl! After Leah was weighed tonight and wrapped back into her swaddle, Mandy held her in burrito-form. No, not burrito-style. Just, you know, all wrapped up.
