      I'm crazy in love with this little girl! It's so hard for me to just leave her sit at the hospital. I want to explain to her I'm not abandoning her! The nurse suggested I skip the 2pm feeding (not breastfeed) so she could sleep, because she was so sleepy. It's so hard to let her be fed by a tube - it's like I am not doing my job! But I also know she needs her rest so she can get stronger. Oh the dilema!

      She's up to 5lbs, 2oz. ... just over her birth weight. So she's heading in the right direction! She's taking most of her meals at night via the bottle, but sometimes needs it via the tube if she's just too tired.

      When I went in this morning, she was in a different outfit - that was fun! One of the nurses had told us earlier that the night shift often plays "dress up" with the babies. At least they're getting attention. She's just a doll - and I think she's so cute when she's waking up, which is usually when I am snapping pictures.

      BIG stretch!

      she was trying to cover her face - she doesn't like the camera any more than I do!

        Ann,
        So, so cute! I love how she's raising her arms, and I do like her polka dots outfit.

                hopefully mid to late June - her 37 week mark would be June 23rd, and that's typically how long they hold preemies for. but things can always change, but realistically, probably not much earlier. paul is home this weekend getting the house ready!
                ----------------------

                she got her first bath! it was just a little sponge bath since she still has her cord - but she seemed to like it! i was always a water baby, and i think Gwen might be too. when we got done toweling her off, her hair was pretty fuzzy - it was so cute!

                and i finally had to put her in something pink ... it had to be done!

                i know you guys are getting sick of these pics - you have to be! but i am going to keep posting anyway, just cuz i want to show her off!

                    Wow Ann, she's growing up so fast. She just looks older :) I love her pink rocker outfit- those are little guitars, right? So cute. That's great that you got to be there for her bath. How fun! I'm going to miss so much over the next two weeks She'll be all grown up by the time I get back!

                    And you're silly, we're never sick of her pictures!

                      I know, she's over 5lbs now - such a big girl! lol My MIL wants a video of her crying so she can hear her ... but I can't get the girl to cry to save my life! I guess that's good - although I am not going to get too used to it, her lungs seem to be developing every day. Each little "squawk" i hear seems louder!

                      i'll tell her not to grow up too fast for you, Sarah ... or if she does - you know I will have pictures to show off! lol

                      i am so jealous of your trip ... i wish i were going!
