September 29, 2009



In adding a couple of photos to Charlotte's photo album I happened to flip from today's photo to one taken in her first few days of life. Wow. What a difference. I can't believe how much she's changed. She's even developing a cute little double chin!

She's doing very well back on the high-flow cannula and Dr. Mosley started weaning it already today from 2.5 to 2 liters.

Today was a big milestone day for Charlotte. She took her first bottle!


She drank 2 mls before showing stress signals and receiving the rest of her feed via her tube. Since this was her first feed and they anticipate choking/puking/heart and breathing issues/etc. the nurse gave her the bottle, however, she did wonderfully and had no issues. I'm sure it'll be a while yet before she can take full feeds and she will most likely take steps forward and back with this as well, but today was promising.

Two chins are better than one, I always say. Congratulations on another good day, Charlotte!

What a change...one good thing about photos - if you are questioning whether anything is changing or not - just look back and she is changing before your eyes. She is absolutely beautiful and your little miracle! We keep saying prayers for you guys. Thanks for keeping us out of staters updated!

I always love the photos of Charlotte. I think she's going to be famous, because she is always practicing her "No more photos, please" look. I love it. She has changed so much! Grow, baby, grow!
