My brother Gary (who helped post here on the blog when I went into labor) came to visit his Niece for the first time this weekend and he thought she was amazing! Here's a picture of Gary and I visiting with Kaitlyn.
Kaitlyn also had her 2nd bath yesterday. She really didn't get too upset during the bath, only during the sticker removal (that hold down the leads stuck to her).
She is much more alert than in the past, it's so wonderful to visit with her when she looks back at you. What a cutie!
Unfortunately late last night I came down with a crappy cold thing, which means, very sadly, that I won't be able to go visit my own daughter until I'm better again. Hopefully it will be by this Friday, when Kaitlyn's Grandparents are coming to visit from Pennsylvania. They've never seen her yet and are so excited!
A very large, but cute Preemie outfit on Kaitlyn. This cute outfit was sent to me by a wonderful Ex-preemie mom from San Jose. She was advertising some Preemie clothes for sale, but when she heard about our story, she sent them to us for free. She hasn't worn them yet until now, as you can tell, she is still way to small to fit well, (her feet are about 3 inches from the footsies), but the nurses thought it was so cute she should wear this outfit.

Kaitlyn is wide awake and actually seems to be enjoying her 2nd bath.
Mom attempting to get Kaitlyn into her "preemie" outfit - always a difficult task inside the isolette and with all her leads attached. I certainly look forward to her being in a crib....(Remember when I was looking forward to her just being off the ventilator?)
