Monday, November 26, 2007 - Update

First of all, I wanted to apologize for the fact that my links are not working. I don’t know why they’re being redirected. Instead of clicking on the link, just copy and paste it into your browser or just type the web address in. I’m not sure why it’s not working.

Olivia is doing well today. She definitely has a mind of her own and will not do something if she feels it is not on her agenda. If she wants to sleep, you cannot wake her up and if she’s awake. . . good luck getting her to sleep. She took 75 ccs from her nurse at noon, but we couldn’t get her to bottle feed at 3:00 pm or at 6:00 pm. Boy, you cannot force that on her! She will gag and sputter and have a major brady. I just hope they give her time to be really successful on her bottle feeds before they send her home. . .especially after hearing from other micropreemie moms. As much as we want her home, she needs to be ready. I think Ryan and I have already established our parental roles. I’m the comforter and when I’m with her, she just sleeps and sleeps. Either that or I’m just really boring, which could also be the case. Daddy, however, is the fun, playful one who she just wants to stare at all night long. Maybe she sleeps all afternoon so that she can be awake for daddy when he gets off work. As smart as she is, she may have figured that out. Whether she’s awake or asleep. . .she’s the most precious little girl in the world. Please continue to pray for her bottle feeding success. As you know, tomorrow is Tuesday and she has another eye exam so please be in prayer about that. Also, she turns 3 months old tomorrow! Happy Birthday Olivia Paige!

You don't know me or I you. I came across your blog when I was searching the net for a "giraffe tent" that I had seen in a target ad. I have been reading your blog ever since. It is such an inspiration to hear your trust in God and to hear of the wonderous steps that Olivia is making. As a new grandma, I can only say to cherish each moment you have. Congratulations on such a beautiful daughter. Happy Birthday, Olivia.
