Emma turned 31 weeks yesterday (when they are preemies you still count by gestational age) and today is Jamie's 34th birthday!!! Happy Birthday old man ;)
Yesterday was a huge day for Emma... her IV came out because she's on enough breast milk to not need IV fluids. AND...... she took her first bottle!!! At this stage they call it "nippling" because she doesn't have the suck/swallow/breathe coordination (that comes around 34 weeks), but she was accepting the nipple into her mouth and didn't choke or sputter and managed to swallow about 1/2 tsp over 10 minutes. It's a pretty big thing that they even let us try, so I was so proud of her!!!
The lights didn't get turned off, but they are checking her numbers again tomorrow and hopefully they will then. I have a whole wardrobe of cute little preemie clothes waiting for her ;)
Jamie took most of the pictures this weekend, so I still need to get them from him, but here are a couple to tide you over :)
My daughter, the non-conformist. I tried a couple times to straighten her out, but she kept moving back to the sideways sleeping position.
