About five more weeks in the NICU. Our baby girl seems to be getting so big :) She has had some big changes this past week...
Oct 18th she went from being naked all the time....
......to wearing clothes for the first time!!!
I love this picture! She is not awake very often but when she is I just want to squeeze her! I'm glad that I happened to capture it on camera. It was so weird to walk in her room that day and see her with clothes on. They were trying to wean her from her isolette.
Later that day she was moved from her first home in the isolette..
...to her big girl bed in an open crib!
She only lasted in the open crib for a day and a half until she got moved back into her isolette because she was borderline on keeping her temperature up. They decided that she was using all her calories trying to stay warm instead of growing. So for now she is back in the isolette but it was still a big step!
