Kaitlyn Halloween Pictures

Well, not the normal type of first "Halloween" pictures for our daugther, as her big costume is her bright orange hat...but we thought you'd enjoy them....

See how small Kaitlyn is compared to Liz's hand

Liz's hand, trying to calm Kaitlyn, not sure if she is yawning or trying to cry. See her right's underneath a white blanket, sort of taped down, she constantly grabs her breathing tube and tries to yank it out. Look at all of her hair, it's been getting lighter.

My eyes are open a little bit, see my HUGE orange hat...

Dad showing off how small Kaitlyn's hat really is

Mom holding the little beanie baby Lizard we got a few days ago, (hospital workers give them to all the preemies)

Now that she's back on my breast milk, here is a picture of her getting 2cc's (her 2nd time of getting milk in 4 days after being so sick this weekend). My breast milk is in the small syringe hanging above Kaitlyn's head. It goes into the feeding tube directly into her stomach. Not the way I imagined "breast feeding" to be. And I'm reminded of this fact every time I have to wake up in the middle of the night to pump

Love the pics! Did you name her lizard "Buddy"?

Glad to hear Kaitlyn is such a tough little fighter.

Glad things are looking up and all of you celebrated Halloween. I loved all the pictures and Mom and Dad look great as well as Kaitlyn. Keep up the good job. All of you deserve a world of credit! Love Nancy

Liz - you are doing so well with the breastfeeding...and even though it's not how you imagined it you are doing an amazing job and Kaitlyn is benefiting so much from her Mommy's milk & love! Just think - you'd be pumping anyway so Daddy could help feed the little princess! Keep up the awesome work!
