Here are some great pictures where you can actually see Kaitlyn awake. After eating, she did have a Brady (heart rate drop).
I did have some sadness though. There was a set of twins in the NICU right behind me as I held Kaitlyn sleeping for those few hours. The nurse was bundling them together, and I coudln't help overhear and think of how I wished for Kaitlyn's sake that she could feel the warmth of her sister next to her. I started crying silent tears and one slipped off my cheek and fell onto my daughter. As I stared down at my peaceful, sleeping girl, looking at how much she has changed, I couldn't help but wonder what her angel sister Corinne would look like now.
After sleeping for a few hours, I put Kaitlyn back into her crib to change her diaper, and surpirse, surpirse, she actually woke up. I haven't seen her this awake since before I was sick. This was a big treat for me. This picture was taken by her sweet nurse Kerry after taking her out of her crib again just before breasfeeding.
Kaitlyn is awake! Her face is all red, that happens when she stretches. This was after breastfeeding.Hi Mom, it's nice to see you! Thanks for letting me drink some milk directly from you. And I say to Kaitlyn, you can drink from me anytime you want, it's much more enjoyable than the breast pump!
OK, here are some pictures from home:
This picture of wild turkeys was taken in front of out house the day of our shower.
Our dog kailan (yes, she's still sick) has taken to using our previous home-owners cat-door (we don't have a cat) to check out what's going on outside the front door.
