Let’s see: Tess got to eat again today! Her belly button nub fell off and a nurse asked me if I wanted to keep it (?!). Poor Kat had to toss 11 bottles of milk because they didn’t tell her to freeze it – sad. Dave and I got a ton of work done, but I still don’t feel ready for Monday. Lexie the night nurse was there and was hysterical as always. Sunday night they measure the baby, and Tess got longer and a bigger head. 🙂 And no one – NO ONE hears a heart murmur! Official proof is due tomorrow, but we’re pretty psyched. Other than uncomfortable-looking IV sites, the peanut is winning the NICU game this week. My favorite move lately? When Tess is pissed, she sticks her legs straight out in the air like a skinny starfish! I attempted to catch this classic move on camera – we’ll see if that worked.
Her cries sound more stable again (read: loud and persistent!), but oh! When they changed her IV today, it almost broke my heart. I ended up cupping her head and hands and promising not to watch – I just felt like a good parent would man up and suffer with her. So sad! I can’t wait for them to yank that thing again. Out!
Becca, I gave in and bought a blanket – nothing special, but Tess now has her own special fleece cover! Some homework done at any rate. So I feel like maybe we accomplished our goal today – Tess was pretty boring! Lucky us. 😀
