Yesterday- I got a visit from two blogger friends and two real life friends. Julie and Kate both came to visit us! We had a great time with both of them!
And Hillary and Josh came also! I was so excited to see them. We all went out for lunch! It was a nice break to be with such fun friends!!!
Here is the proud daddy and his girl. He is SO great with her. I never expected him to be this hands on of a dad. He is so in love with her. We just can't wait for the day we get her home and we can pick her up with NO cords or wires or monitors on her. It's so hard to scoop her up when she has so much attached to her.
Today has been a good day! Thursday night I stayed with Harper by myself. We did okay but she was up a lot - so I got about 2 hours of sleep. Last night Scott stayed with us and Harper slept the entire night long!!! She was so good! I'm so thankful that we get the practice of taking care of her in the safety of the hospital so when we go home - we will feel more confident.
Our doctor came in today and said we might take her off oxygen tomorrow and we could also start feeding from a bottle again today. She has been fed through a nose tube because her breathing has been a little too high but she is slowing down. This is me giving her first bottle - she took it really good. She took two feedings well - but her last two haven't gone so smooth. It's a slow process - but we are making GOOD progress!
Both sets of grandparents were here this weekend so Harper got a LOT of attention. She is a very loved baby - by both her family and all of you!!! We got the cutest outfit and hat for her that she will have to wear soon and the hat says "miracle". I'm wearing a necklace today that another blogger sent that says "miracle" - that is just what she is to us. Thank you God for this precious gift!
We got her a CD player with speakers for her crib yesterday and we have been playing praise music for her all day today. She loves it! I'm hoping God will give her the gift of music (it won't come from us so it will be a miracle if she CAN sing!)
