Another Week In Pictures


Little One is now 33 weeks, 5 days corrected (apparently I am really horrible at math, because that is not the age I pegged as being! I guess the doctors know better than I do though). She looks much bigger than she did just a few weeks ago! My little girlie is growing!My mom was so distracted blown away by all the computers and gadgets around Little One's bed space. Little One was "satting" high even without her CPAP or low-flow. She was breathing totally on her own!

She now weighs 1890 g (as opposed to 980 g at birth)! She's also tolerating her feeds at 36 cc Q3! I've also been nursing her and the lactation nurse said Little One doesn't even need to be topped up with fortified milk because she is drinking enough from me. We have been topping her up just in case though.
Little One makes these growling noises after she nurses. I call it her "content sound". She is so cute. What a little milk monster.
The kid has absolutely no neck. She's now got three chins!!! I joke you not!

My mom came all the way from the Philippines to meet her first granddaughter for the first time. It was a wonderful and special occasion.I still cannot believe how big Little One has gotten! She is so chunky! She's go her Daddy's brown hair and I noticed for the first time tonight that her hair is quite wavy. I wonder if her hair will be straight or curly.
So much has changed in the past five weeks!

Thank you for these perfect photographs! I will say it again... I am in love with your beautiful girl! I feel like singing!

It's a good thing we don't live too close to each other, otherwise imagine the fun we'd have going restaurant hopping and ROBsessing!!!

Can't wait for you to meet her too!!! By the way, I was going to give you a shout. Haven't chatted since you and your adorable daughter were at the hospital to visit me the other week :) We'll catch up soon. Miss ya! XO

Veronica:
You are so right! She looks HUGE to me! Well, huge compared to how she was when she was born!!! Tee hee!

J:
Thank you! I think she will be big enough to be moved into a crib soon. She's also breathing on her own, breastfeeding a bit and controling her own body temperature. I hope this means we are closer to going home!!! Gah!

Sharon:
Awww! Thank you so much. Your comments always brighten up my day! Today Little One had a fantastic day...I, on the other hand, didn't. It was one of those days. I guess I should always remember that Little One is doing really well and that's all that counts :)
