little Lily and the May Nook kit

Lily has had a good couple of days!

After all of the spitting up and then the diarrhea she lost some weight (I know that it's normal for babies to lose a bit after they're born) but now that she's keeping things down she's at 6 pounds! We weighed her tonight before her bath. Her cord finally fell off and I was able to give Lily her first tub bath and she did really well. She's going to love the water like my other girls.

Other good news- she's been taking her bottle feedings well and tonight the doctor said she can eat by mouth (instead of her NG tube) for any feedings where she's awake enough- she did two in a row tonight which is great and they've increased the amount they give her for bottle feedings.

The other girls spent the night and their Grandma and Grandpa's house (thanks, Matt) so I was able to go to the hospital tonight. They were so excited to get to stay, to have root beer floats and watch a movie and then have pancakes for breakfast in the morning. And, I was thrilled to get to go to the hospital after not being able to go this morning, and I was able to stay as long as I wanted (well, until I got too tired, anyway) since I didn't have to be back to pick up anyone at a certain time. The house sure is quiet, though, with everyone gone.

I don't know if you've seen this yet- the May kit from My Scrapbook Nook. It features the new Hello Luscious line from Basic Grey, pretty flowers from Webster's Pages, pink glitter alphas from American Crafts, trims from May Arts, etc.

So glad Lily is doing well and that you were able to spend some time with her and not have to worry about anything else. She's a beautiful little bundle. :)

It must have been nice to be able to spend more time with her and to see her make progress :-) Hopefully she'll continue to do so and you can have her home soon!
