Kaitlyn is still being her finicky self, eating full bottles only on occasion.
Here are a few new pictures:
Yes, I did get a hair cut , everyone comments that Kaitlyn looks like me, I personally think she looks more like Brian, but she definitely has my coloring. I'm not going to miss all those monitors behind me.
When I showed up one day, Kaitlyn's nurse had propped up her Lizard, very cute.
The nurses love to comment on how pink Kaitlyn is, not only her vast array of preemie clothes, but how "pink" she is! Good and healthy looking. Sooooo different from when she was first born. She's wearing her mittens to keep her hands away from her NG tube.
"I want to come home!"
This is a picture of Kaitlyn's NICU twin. Little Ethyn (well, not so little any more, he's almost 10 pounds!) has had even a longer NICU stay than Kaitlyn. We've become good friends with Ethyn's parents, Jenny and Phil. They lost Ethyn's twin brother. I like to say that Ethyn and Katilyn are each other's twins now, and jokingly say that they look exactly alike! (Interesting that we both spelled our babies names with a "Y"). Ethyn's and Kaitlyn's cribs were separated by a low wall (in the smaller NICU), Jenny and I would sit in gliders holding our babies , we would lean back to see beyond the wall to chat with one another. Life in the NICU. Currentlly Ethyn and Kaitlyn are the 2 long-timers in the NICU. The entire NICU staff cheers for our babies to go home.
