April 14

Little Miss Elsie is 100 days old today! We celebrated yesterday by dressing her up in her first real outfit (this one is from Chantel M, thanks!). We have three little preemie outfits, and I was starting to worry that she is going to grow out of them before she gets a chance to wear them. So even though she is wearing the hospital clothes nowadays (long-sleeved shirt and a sleep sack), and I'm sure it makes the nurses a little crazy to have to undress her, I decided that she's going to wear these cute clothes instead of hospital clothes.





Little Thumbelina isn't so little anymore; she's almost up to 6 pounds. She has recovered very well from her eye surgery. After having to be intubated during the surgery, they were a little worried that she would have a hard time going back to her previous settings on the high-flow nasal cannula that she was using before the surgery. But, proving once again how tough she is, Elsie is back on 1.5 liters per minute and doing great.

  1. How cute! I am just curious, how long is she now? Glad the surgery went well.

    1. I don't know how long she is; they only measure her height once a week and you know how hard it is to get an accurate measurement on a wiggly baby. I'll ask when I go in tomorrow.

  2. I have loved reading this blog and hearing about the experiences you've been through. Way better than me texting you all the time, though I prefer the confidentiality and ease of a text.
